Gift of Time


What do you get Mum or Dad this year?

And … what about a gift for a busy family carer?

Thinking about perfume or aftershave … again?

Or will it be flowers, or a pot plant? Or … a new pair of slippers?


While gifts like these can be appreciated, why not choose a gift that is even more meaningful and practical – the “Platinum gift of TIME”.

Platinum care gift certificates are a fabulous gift idea for someone who could do with a little extra care and support in their lives. This may be for a loved one recovering from surgery or an illness, or for an elderly friend or relative living far away, or anyone in your life who could do with a little bit of extra care and so it can be the perfect gift for anyone. The gift of care also makes an ideal and much appreciated idea for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Birthdays, and Christmas.

In addition, family carers who may be caring for Mum or Dad, or for a spouse, or another relative, and need some respite time can enjoy a well-deserved break that will allow them to re-energise and de-stress and attend to their own emotional well-being so they may better care for their loved ones.

A Platinum care gift certificate offers complete flexibility.  Services can be used in many ways, for example:

For care recipients: 

  • Having help with errands, shopping, meal preparation
  • Some time to rest while someone else handles the housekeeping, laundry and ironing
  • A personal driver for assistance with appointments
  • Companionship for walks, a concert, or for a drive down to the beach or the country or to a much loved café
  • Help after surgery
  • Someone to check in on a regular basis when you don’t have the time or are away from home

For the carer:

  • Respite care so they can enjoy an afternoon or evening off. Time for them to think, to relax, to enjoy a leisurely walk, to go to a concert – time to take care of themselves.
  • Some time to rest while someone else handles the housekeeping, laundry and ironing

As you can see, the gift not only provides care for the person in need, but peace of mind for the entire family. Rates start as low as $50.00 per hour and are valid for one year from the date of purchase. The minimum service is for two hours.
