Lois Burr has been re­ceiv­ing At Home Ser­vices through Baptistcare for the past 15 years and said the sup­port has en­abled her to live life the way she wants.

“Through the years I’ve had magic help from them, they’ve ab­so­lutely done a great job,” Ms Burr said.

“I have a spe­cial con­nec­tion with them, they’re good and kind to me, peo­ple I can rely on.”

An­other Baptistcare cus­tomer Betty At­twell said be­ing able to stay in­de­pen­dent in her own home is an im­por­tant part of her well­be­ing.

She has been a Baptistcare cus­tomer for many years since she started re­ceiv­ing as­sis­tance at home af­ter a hos­pi­tal stay.

Betty re­ceives daily per­sonal care and a sup­port worker comes twice a day to help her with show­er­ing and dress­ing.

“Mum is on a high-level home care pack­age and has a high fall risk,” Betty’s son Gary said.

“I’d be lost without them and that’s the truth, they help us 365 days a year.

“We’ve been happy with the qual­ity of ser­vice since the very start– the car­ers and sched­ul­ing, they’ve got that all to a tee.”

Spe­cialised res­i­den­tial care and de­men­tia sup­port for older peo­ple is avail­able at Baptistcare Grace­wood Res­i­den­tial Care in Sal­ter Point and other lo­ca­tions in Perth.
