3 ways to happier living as you age

By Jessica Kam

At a time when your health is out of your control, choosing from who and where you receive care and support can make all the difference. Here are 3 reasons we feel home care will help you live a happier life as you age.

Familiar surroundings
Getting assistance and treatment at home in familiar surroundings near family and friends gives you the privacy and peace of mind needed to focus on getting better and improving your quality of life. We know how important it is to remain at home. Not only for the milestones and memorable moments, but you want to maintain your belongings, independence and freedom. Having a support worker or nurse visit may take some getting used to, but you will be free from the emotional distress that comes with moving to a new environment.

Tailored care
HCA Home has access to 120,000 national healthcare professionals through our parent company Healthcare Australia (HCA). Our nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists can come to you in the comfort of your own home and give you the care you require. Whether you need dementia care, medication management, palliative care, continence support, help recovering from a fall or just to keep strong and active, we want to help you get back to your daily activities as quickly as possible.

Keep social
Getting the right treatment is important for the management of chronic health conditions, as is keeping social for mental health and recovery. Although residential facilities offer social programs and organised activities, they cannot cater to everyone’s needs. Each person is different, and you may prefer to instead socialise with your close friends and family at the time and day of your own choosing.

This is one of the great advantages of home care, as getting assistance will have no impact on your social life. You will be able to maintain your social connections and activities with family, old friends, neighbours and have them visit you any time you want. Not to mention, our ability to provide regular support workers, means you’ll also have a new friend who you can enjoy an organised day out doing whatever you like or just enjoying each other’s company.
