Our In Home Support Service is designed to give carers regular breaks, allowing them “time out” to do something for themselves. We provide grant assistance to families in need of support towards their cost of employing a part time carer to assist them. A carer can provide respite for you while maintaining your loved one’s regular routine. They may prepare a light meal; assist with food, fluids and personal care as necessary. They may also offer therapeutic and social engagement by encouraging client interests.
Western Alzheimers provides approx. 55,000 hours of In Home Support care per annum.
