Older people have managed their own lives for a long time. It comes as no surprise that they do not want to be submissive recipients of services, dependent on funded providers. They want to remain independent and have choice, control and flexibility over the care and services they receive.
As winter approaches and we drag out the heaters and put our clothes dryers to good use, Home Instead Senior Care believe it’s an opportune time to check your home is safe and sound for the months ahead.
In 2012, Home Instead Senior Care developed a free resource booklet for families and carers of people with dementia. Today we share over 50,000 copies with familes and carers of people living with dementia in our community each year.
In our experience there are many people worried about their ageing parents and want to get them the help they need. But this help and support is often met with absolute resistance from ageing adults who would rather not have any help at all!
November 2014 marked 10 years of Home Instead Senior Care in Australia. To celebrate a decade of caring for seniors in our community we were joined by the founders of Home Instead Senior Care international franchise – Paul and Lori Hogan – at our national conference.
