How Can Personal Care Help Me?
AvaCare believe it is important for you to be able to remain in the comfort of your own home.
Our Personal Care promotes your independence by ensuring that you receive the care you need in the way you choose. Personal Care is for you if you need help with everyday tasks such as:
Bathroom & hygiene assistance
In addition to offering toilet support, we can change incontinence pads, assist you with stoma bags and empty catheters. Furthermore, our team can also assist you with showering, bathing, strip-wash and bed baths.
Help with your medicine
Obtaining and renewing prescribed medication can be difficult. We can facilitate the collection of your medication or arrange delivery straight from your pharmacy. We will also remind you when to take it and how much you need.
Help with preparing your food
We can help you make drinks, go food shopping, cook for you. Our team members are happy to plan menus and prepare meals for you.
Morning/evening routine assistance
Help to complete day-to-day activities is important. We can support you with such things like getting dressed and undressed, to teeth-cleaning and shaving.
All of the staff at AvaCare undertake a 12-week induction course where they learn all aspects of Personal Care, including but not limited to, Health & Safety, Moving & Handling, Infection Control, Medication Awareness and Food Hygiene.
Our staff are fully-trained to handle any situation with the greatest amount of discretion, humility and respect for your dignity. We understand that you are unique and deserve a completely personalised support service.
