You’re in safe hands

Cockburn Gazette - - SENIORS LIFE | ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE -

BETHANIE knows feel­ing safe and happy in your own home can be­come more challengin­g as we get older.

Even our com­fort­able homes can be­come more lonely as we lose touch with friends or fam­ily.

It is nice to know that there is some­one to call in case you need a hand or have an emer­gency.

That is why Bethanie treats you as a friend, not a cus­tomer, as they work with you to es­tab­lish your needs and ser­vices.

“They do what the cus­tomer wants, not what the company wants,” Bethanie Home Care cus­tomer Valerie said.

“That’s so im­por­tant, to feel like you’re be­ing listened to.”

For cus­tomer Peter, he found that life con­tin­ued as it always had, even as his care needs in­creased over time.

From sim­ple do­mes­tic help around the home, Peter grad­u­ally re­quired more nurs­ing care, which he said was a smooth tran­si­tion.

“Bethanie knows ex­actly what I’m talk­ing about, some­times be­fore I do,” he said.

He said one time his carer showed up for her reg­u­lar visit, only to in­stantly see that some­thing was amiss with his right eye.

“She took me straight down to the doc­tor and we had the problem fixed there and then; I didn’t even re­alise any­thing was wrong,” he said. “That sort of ex­tra care is what I’ve found so valuable.”

Many Home Care cus­tomers find they look at their com­fort­able, fa­mil­iar homes with a new­found tol­er­ance as the things they worry about or seem in­sur­mount­able be­came man­age­able with an ex­tra hand around the house.

Hav­ing the con­ti­nu­ity of reg­u­lar vis­its, social in­ter­ac­tion and nurs­ing care means many people are able to live hap­pily in their homes for years after they ex­pected to have moved out.
