How can we help?
Osteoarthritis can lead to frustration, weariness and depression when a person can no longer perform simple, daily tasks with ease.
But in most cases, people with osteoarthritis can lead full, active lives by properly managing the condition. Maintaining good personal care routines can also prevent secondary health problems, pain and discomfort.
Our Support Workers are highly trained in delivering care to those who need physical assistance and Right at Home can help alleviate some of the pressures of daily living by offering:
- Meal preparation
- Light housekeeping
- Assistance with recreational activities
- Showering, bathing or bed bathing
- Dressing and undressing
- Hair care, shaving and grooming
- Toileting assistance
We use consistent Support Workers who know their Clients well, are competent using mobility aids and equipment and always respect their Clients’ dignity.
“We have all been very happy with all the care staff that have been attending to our mother’s needs. They have been respectful of her dignity and wishes and have fed back very promptly with any concerns that they may have had about her well being. We as a family felt she was in very safe hands with staff that really cared about her.“
