January is a time of realisations and change. The new year brings with it the opportunity to make plans for the future and renew your outlook on life. Sometimes, that means coming to a realisation and making difficult decisions.
During the holiday season, you might have realised that your parents are starting to need extra support. As we grow older, we all change and some of us may need a little extra help from day to day.
The new year is the time to make changes, no matter how hard they may be. If your parents need the extra support that can only be found in an aged-care residence, please reach out. We’re here to guide you through the process and we are only too happy to help with any questions or concerns you may have.
Our heritage dates back to 1969 and in the years since we have grown into one of the most innovative aged care providers in Australia. Our Dedicated Assignment approach ensures that our staff form deep and lasting relationships with residents, allowing for a meaningful experience for all.
At the centre of everything we do is our Relationship-First Approach. Creating memories, sharing experiences and nurturing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents is the mission of everyone at Arcare.
We strive to ensure that all of our residences fulfil the Arcare 5-star reputation. All individual suites are equipped with every modern convenience possible, with a focus on comfort, safety and health. Flat screen televisions, paid TV subscriptions, wireless internet and individually controlled heating and cooling are standard across most residences.
Across our residences in three states we offer hairdressers, beauty salons, cafés, movie theatres, intimate dining rooms, manicured courts and gardens and more. In addition, services such as regular shuttle buses and community excursions ensure residents always have their choice of activities.
Physical and spiritual health is closely linked to the people they spend time with and the relationships they form. To this end, Arcare have focussed strongly in developing our Dedicated Assignment approach to aged care.
To become certified under our model, staff must commit to working a certain amount of time with each resident, ensuring they can form those close personal connections that really make aged care living a great time.
Residential respite care is a good solution for situations when the family needs a break or has to leave the home for some time and their elderly relative needs more consistent support while they’re away.
Our residential respite care programs are designed to provide maximum comfort for all involved. If you’re calling us to enquire about respite care for your parent, we’ll take you through the process of settling them into their room and introducing them to their new peers and dedicated staff assistants.
If the time isn’t quite right for residential care or respite care, in-home care might be the appropriate choice for your family. The government may provide financial assistance to assist some people to remain living at home.
If you’d like to learn more about government-funded home care, please contact us. We’ve helped many families through this process in the past. We can help you understand the application and assessment process and ensure you have a strong chance of securing the assistance your family needs.
