Baptcare understands the daily challenges of living well at home with dementia and memory loss, whether it’s part of a diagnosed condition or not. We provide professional, tailored services including clinical nursing, personal care, diversional therapy and respite options for families. We draw on over 75 years experience in aged care, as well as experience supporting people with early onset dementia to help support families and individuals to experience a better quality of life.
Our diversional therapists provide one-on-one guidance to help build meaningful connections and reduce the isolation, loneliness or anxiety that can be connected with ageing at home. They take time to understand the life experiences and interests that make each person unique.
They create tailored leisure opportunities, activities, and strategies to support a better quality of life.
Diversional therapy provides support for someone who is ageing or has a chronic condition. It also can assist and provide guidance to carers, partners and family members who are in a caring role.
To provide care during the night a qualified Care Worker can stay with your family member in their own home.
An ‘active sleepover’ is from 8.00pm to 8.00am. Typically it includes four hours of company and support such as home care, meal preparation and personal care, like showering. It also includes an eight-hour allocation for the Care Worker’s sleep.
Of course, every situation is unique, so talk to us about our longer session care options including 24-hour care and respite.
In-home respite involves one of our Personal Care Workers coming to your loved one’s home. Depending on what you need, these visits can be for a short time, or for longer periods including overnight stays.
Alternatively, the worker may take your loved one for an outing for a few hours while the family carers have a break.
Escorted transport with a Baptcare Personal Care Worker is a great way to get to medical appointments or attend social gatherings independently.
A Baptcare Personal Care Worker can help you get ready and assist you to get in and out of their car safely. You’ll be driven to and from your destination and receive support while you’re there.
Our escorted transport service is ideal for:
- Shopping, e.g. for Christmas or birthday presents
- Doctors’ appointments
- Social outings
- Family events.
