Meals and shopping:
Meal delivery, cooking meals and food preparation.
- Cooking meals and preparing food: the home care worker will communicate with the clients and/or their carer/s to understand the clients dietary needs and will either cook meals, prepare food for the client - or a carer to cook themselves - or a bit of both. Whether it’s brekky, lunch, dinner or snacks, the support worker can make meal times that little bit easier.
- Going shopping to buy groceries and restocking pantry items: this can be done with or without the client depending on what’s needed on any given day. At first, the home care worker will need to be provided with a shopping list but over time, once the home care worker becomes accustomed to the way the things work around the house and what’s needed for meals, cleaning and day to day activities, they won’t even need you to write the list.
- Hygiene support, including toileting and showering: experienced, verified, screened home care workers can help with providing respectful, hygiene support with the client’s dignity being at the forefront - always.
- Taking medication
- Getting in and out of bed
- Getting a client dressed and changed: whatever the occasion - be it a regular day, an outing, an appointment or something special, the home care worker will make sure the client is dressed and ready for their day.
Domestic Help: cleaning, assisting with laundry, doing admin or paperwork, taking out rubbish or feeding pets
Home maintenance: support with handy things like pruning hedges, fixing leaky taps, mowing lawns and keeping the place nice and tidy
Movement assistance around the home: whether it’s gentle exercise or moving from one room to another, a home care worker can help with all kinds of in-home mobility and movement.
Social, community, sports & activities:
Support a client to stay connected by attending social events within their community, or spend time with clients one on one in their home. This could even include going to watch or play a game, or participate in a broad range of other activities out and about (or indoors).
Someone to talk to and connect with: so much of happiness comes from conversation and connection with one another. Home care workers help keep loneliness at bay and provide engaging, interesting, client-centred chats.
