Frequently Asked Questions
"Home care" simply refers to support provided to older individuals who choose to continue living independently in their own homes rather than move into a retirement community or senior care facility. Home care can be provided by family or friends, but professional home care services may be hired to supplement or replace home care provided by family or friends. If you are a resident at a retirement living community and live in your own unit, you may receive home care as part of a package with the facility. There may be a variety of plans open to you.
If you do not require continuous medical attention and want to remain living in your home - but may need some occasional help with routine tasks, receiving home care is an excellent solution. For some people, living independently is important for their dignity, self-esteem, and identity. At the same time, sometimes it is a comfort to know that should you come to need assistance, it will be easily available to you.
Home care services are aged care services for seniors who choose to remain living independently in their own homes. Home care services are typically non-medical care, such as assistance with cleaning, grocery shopping, meal planning and preparation, and other chores -- as well as appointments. These are tasks that you may just need a little help with, but you are otherwise perfectly able to live alone in your home.
Some home care service expenses may be subsidised or fully covered by the government or insurance policies. Private home care services may also be available in your area. Some companies offer a variety of different plans - especially if you are living in a retirement community, so you can pick the type of home care support you want. For example, some residents would prefer to have meals prepared for them, so they don't have to worry about grocery shopping, recipe planning, and food preparation. Others may want to cook for themselves but want a laundry service so that they don't have to worry about hauling clothes up and down stairs, or dealing with washing machines.
Home health care services refer to support of a medical nature, provided by licenced health care professionals, such as nurses and personal support workers, to seniors living in their own homes -- as opposed to non-medical assistance with chores and routine tasks. For example, home health care services may include preparation and administration of prescribed medicines, tests, physical rehabilitation, monitoring, attendance and support at medical appointments, and more.
Seniors living in their homes may receive both home care services and home health care services, depending on their needs. The services may be provided by different organizations or may fall under the umbrella of one service provider. Home health care services may be subsidised or fully covered by the government or insurance policies. Private home health care services may also be available in your area. For seniors living in retirement communities, there is usually great access to home health care -- and in some cases, specialised for common health issues in elderly people -- arthritis, memory problems, mobility, psychological matters, and diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. For convenience, some even offer pharmacy deliveries straight to your door.
A "care home" is usually a small residential centre designed for community living, where seniors live, socialize, do a variety of activities, and benefit from similar services they would receive from home care. Residents may choose to live in a care home because they are uncomfortable or unable to live on their own, or simply for convenience and a more active social life. Care homes are looked after by staff and may have landscaped grounds and communal amenities, such as activity rooms, exercise areas, walking paths, swimming pools, and more. They often have trained caregivers to offer different levels of home care, and medical personnel to offer home health care to residents. Care homes can also be known as "retirement living" and these facilities often have an age requirement.
In most cases, a care home will provide both home care and home health care for its residents, depending on the facility. Some care homes in Sydney cater to seniors who are independent but just require a little assistance, while others are open to a wider range of seniors, including those who require much more care. Carers who provide medical-related care will be licenced health care professionals, such as nurses and personal support workers -- there may even be doctors on staff. Care facilities usually ensure that the carers they hire are well trained to provide whatever support is needed by the residents. Non-medical home care may include support for daily grooming and hygiene routines, such as dressing, washing, and using the bathroom.
Retirement living communities are becoming increasingly popular, and not just for older individuals who are no longer able to live alone and independently in their own homes. Sure, retirement-aged care provides assistance to those who need a little help with tasks of daily life, and home health care may be available and specialise in ailments and health issues common to the elderly. Many retirement-aged folk who are perfectly able to live independently choose to move into retirement living communities. Superior retirement living communities offer different home care plans, so you can have as much or as little support as you need.
Retirement living comes with amazing benefits. Imagine not having to cook your own meals, or spend hours every week doing housekeeping and other chores. You don't have to worry about your security in the home, as there are usually staff on site 24 hours a day. Some senior care facilities look and feel like resorts, and are situated in excellent areas with lots of travel options and amenities. Some even offer special buses so that residents can go shopping or see the sights without the hassle of arranging transportation or finding parking.
One of the biggest challenges for senior citizens is that as they age, they may find it increasingly difficult to socialize. In some cases, it is because they - and their friends - aren't as mobile as they used to be, and activities seem a little more tiring. This may lead not only to loneliness and depression but also lower self-esteem and confidence. Now imagine how wonderful it would be to be part of a vibrant community, surrounded by old and new friends?
Many retirement living facilities and complexes offer interesting activities that not only serve to entertain but to better and maintain the health of senior residents. For example, retirement communities often encourage physical activity; to this end, they may offer exercise classes catered towards common needs of senior citizens. Some communities offer walking tours and day trips -- even dances. There may be art classes, special workshops with guest speakers, and cultural celebrations. Seasonal activities are also popular. Of course, visitors are often welcome -- some places even put on events for which residents are encouraged to invite their outside friends and family. In many ways, nothing can beat the lifestyle you can have with retirement living.
