Unlike many other organisations, our services are designed to offer everybody over the age of 18 years the ability to live as fulfilling and independent a life as possible, minimising the need for long term or institutional care.

From the range of services available, clients create a tailored plan suited to their needs, based on their own desires and our nurse led assessment.

Once client's desired outcomes are discussed and an assessment of need has taken place, client's select from essentially two categories of services:

Healthcare services available include (not limited to):

  • Home nursing service
  • Medications management
  • Care / case management
  • Care planning
  • Care plan reviews

Social care services available include (list not exhaustive):

  • Home help

  • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs*)
  • Assistance with incidental activities of daily living (IADLs*)
  • Meal preparation / meal planning
  • Housekeeping (light duties) – laundry / ironing
  • Companionship
  • Outpatient attending – including / excluding transport
