Companionship and light cleaning and domestic duties
We understand that sometimes continuing to live in your home independently may be a lonely and sometimes worrisome time for many older Australians, especially when family may not be close by to visit or assist with the activities of everyday living which may have become difficult to manage.
A regular visit from a Carer from ALPHA can help to brighten your day. By visiting you on a regular basis a Carer can help reduce the stress associated with living alone by providing stimulating conversation and a friendly familiar face to reduce the social isolation that may be felt by some living at home alone.
A Carer Companion can also assist you to get to your next appointment or travel to a family outing allowing you and your family to get on with what really matters, living life to the full. ALPHA can also support family members who may be in aged care or disability residences to visit home and attend those family milestones, weddings, birthdays etc.
There are many other reasons that you may need a companion in the home, these can include:
- Light cleaning, for example, vacuuming and dusting.
- Light meal preparation
- Light domestic duties, including washing and ironing.
- Shopping trips
- Coffee outings
- Trips to the hairdresser
