Imagine a world where ageing or living with a disability doesn’t mean losing independence. Where expert care comes to your doorstep, blending seamlessly with the comfort of your own home.

When a family member needs care, it’s not just their life that changes – yours does, too. You’re faced with decisions that impact their health, happiness, and dignity. This is where Connected Health steps in. We’re not just a homecare provider but a beacon of hope and support for families like yours, seeking the best for their loved ones.

This is the world Connected Health is creating – a world where care is more than a service; it’s a partnership for a better, more independent life.


When Should You Consider Help at Home from a Paid Carer?

Deciding to bring in a professional carer is a significant step. Here are some scenarios when considering this option might be beneficial:

  • Increasing Care Needs: If managing daily tasks or medical routines is challenging for your loved one, a professional carer can provide the necessary support.
  • Recovery from Illness or Surgery: Professional care can be critical during recovery, ensuring that your loved one heals properly and safely.
  • Companion Care: Emotional well-being is as important as physical health. A carer can offer valuable companionship, especially for those facing loneliness or isolation.
  • Respite for Family Caregivers: Caregiving can be demanding. As a family caregiver, if you need a recharge break, a paid carer can provide reliable, temporary support.


How Can a Home Carer Help?

  • Personal Care: Assistance with daily tasks like bathing, dressing, and grooming to maintain personal hygiene and comfort.
  • Medication Management: Ensuring medications are taken correctly and on time is crucial for health and well-being.
  • Meal Preparation: Nutritious meal planning and preparation tailored to dietary needs and preferences.
  • Mobility Assistance: Helping your loved one move around safely reduces the risk of falls and promotes independence.
  • Housekeeping: Taking care of light household chores to maintain a clean and comfortable living environment.
  • Companionship: Offering social interaction, engagement in activities, and a friendly face, which is vital for emotional health.
  • Morning Wake-Up and Tuck-In Service: Assisting to start and end the day, including help with getting out of bed, washing, dressing, and settling in for the night.
