HENDERCARE

Stirling Times - - National Seniors Week -

HENDERCARE has been sup­port­ing older Aus­tralians in the Perth com­mu­nity for more than 13 years.

A reg­is­tered Home Care Pack­age provider, HenderCare of­fers ser­vices and care with Home Care Pack­ages lev­els 1, 2, 3 and 4.

The car­ers can as­sist you around the home with clean­ing, gar­den­ing, home main­te­nance such as chang­ing light bulbs and check­ing smoke alarm bat­ter­ies, tak­ing you shop­ping and meal prepa­ra­tion.

HenderCare can also pro­vide so­cial sup­port to help you stay con­nected to your com­mu­nity, al­lied health ser­vices, as­sis­tive tech­nol­ogy and nurs­ing care.

“We un­der­stand how over­whelm­ing it can be to try and nav­i­gate the Home Care Pack­age process, that’s why we have a ded­i­cated Home Care Pack­age co-or­di­na­tor who takes the time to sit and talk through all of your op­tions with you,” State Man­ager WA Jon Pin­der said.

“This is a free, noobli­ga­tion ser­vice we offer to help you un­der­stand how a Home Care Pack­age could sup­port you in liv­ing your life the way you want.”

You can also use your Home Care Pack­age funds to buy prod­ucts or equip­ment that will help you live com­fort­ably and safely at home from skin creams, ban­dages and con­ti­nence prod­ucts to home mod­i­fi­ca­tions like ramps and shower rails.

“Our com­mit­ment to con­sumer di­rected care means we don’t charge an exit fee if you de­cide to change ser­vice providers,” Mr Pin­der said.

“We see exit fees as a bar­rier to true choice and con­trol.

“For a num­ber of our clients we’re also able to waive the Ba­sic Daily Fee; this means that you can re­ceive ser­vices in your own home, fully-funded by the govern­ment, with no out-of­pocket cost to you.”
