A leading operator of aged care communities in Queensland is now offering its highly customised service to seniors requiring in-home assistance.
Tall Trees are supported living neighbourhoods that adhere to the concept of ‘ageing in place’, which allows seniors to move into a feature-packed apartment within one of their developments and receive whatever level of care is right for them.
The company’s newly expanded Community Care has been designed to help seniors that need extra care on top of any assistance they may already be receiving government subsidised services.
Phil Usher, director of Tall Trees, says they set up their Community Care service after recognising an increased need in the marketplace for in-home assistance.
“There is a lot of emphasis currently being placed on the idea of ageing in place, as it allows seniors to live happier and more independent lives while taking pressure off the already overburdened nursing homes in Australia,” Mr Usher says.
“While we’ve been providing this service to residents living in our communities, we believe it’s of enormous worth to other seniors in the community to have high quality but affordable in-home care.
“Not only does it help to ensure that individuals are receiving the care that they require; it also means that pressure is being taken off partners and families who may be struggling to look after their loved ones.
“Our experienced carers have honed their skills both at Tall Trees and a number of other prior care roles and are very experienced at delivering tailor-made solutions in a home environment.”
The Tall Trees Community Care service encompasses a wide variety of facets, including nutrition and hydration management, medication administration, dementia management and disability care.
