The diverse responsibilities of a family caregiver can be overwhelming

Family caregivers often take on many roles. Being a personal care assistant, nurse, therapist, treasurer and family member all at once, 24/7, can be overwhelming. This is especially because caregivers often put the needs and interests of our loved ones ahead of ourselves, neglecting self-care.

In addition, family caregivers are not trained professionals and may not be well-equipped with the skills and knowledge to provide the best care. This can further add to the stress of both you and your loved one. Over time, the physical, emotional and mental exhaustion can lead to burnout.

Besides taking a toll on our health, caregiver burnout also affects the quality of care that our loved one receives.

Caregiving can be a physically and emotionally demanding journey, but remember that you are not alone. Many forms of help are available in Australia. Take the first step and reach out.

Access quality care and reduce caregiver stress with home care services

Home care is a safe and convenient care option that allows your loved one to get care in the comfort of home.

Should you or your helper be away, a trained caregiver can step in to take care of your loved one. Have peace of mind as you get busy with other commitments or rest and recharge. From companionship and meal preparation to showering and medication reminders, professional caregivers will make sure that your loved ones are well taken care of at home.

With home care, your loved ones receive the undivided attention of the caregiver, ensuring that they get the care they deserve. Furthermore, being in the home setting means that caregivers may be able to spot potential hazards that are only obvious to the trained eye and recommend simple home modifications, such as the installation of grab bars, to keep your loved one safe.

If you loved one needs to go for a medical appointment, caregivers can also support with transporting them to and fro home and hospitals, accompanying and taking care of their needs throughout the visit, accurately relaying doctor’s advice and collecting medication.

Cost of Home Care in Australia

The cost of respite care varies depending on the type of care needed. Home, personal, and nursing care by local certified carers, support workers, and nurses cost anywhere between $40-150/hour in Australia, but Homage offers care packages to ensure affordability.
