Life doesn’t slow down. As we get older, so do our families; which means that there may come a time where you’ll be beckoned to care for your aged parents who may not be able to care for themselves anymore.
In more recent years, the Australian community has placed a significant emphasis on providing the elderly with high quality and cost effective aged care services. And that’s where we come in. At Platinum Healthcare we understand that getting older can be complicated and confusing; we understand that certain times are proving tougher than what they used to be; and through this, we can help guide you to make the right choice about the type of care your loved one should receive.
We are all familiar with the saying “home is where the heart is”. There is absolutely no place like home, and especially when growing old, home allows for familiarity and comfort. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, approximately 90% of elderly people prefer the comfort of their own home as they grow older. So why not do just that?
There are a variety of aged care services available in order for your loved one to remain living a confident and happy life in their home as they get older.
Regular services are offered in home, whereby focusing ultimately on companionship and lifestyle, home help, and personal care. Whether your loved one desires company in times where you can’t be there, requires help performing everyday tasks such as the laundry or cooking, or needs assistance with their personal care – at Platinum Healthcare we’re ready to help.
Whether you need a break, or it’s an emergency, our respite care services will offer you with assistance to support both you and your family’s lives through times where you need some time off. We may provide these services in your own home or at a residential aged care facility, whilst still keeping you up-to-date with the conditions of your loved one.
Through the coordination between families, doctors, nurses, and carers, this allows for the best results to be delivered throughout the process. Our aim at Platinum Healthcare is to ensure that we provide continuous treatment to patients who are seriously ill in order to reduce their suffering throughout the remainder of their life.
