Why choose community support services for the elderly?

Discover the many benefits community support services can give an elder under your care.

What are community support services?

For many elders, living independently may become more difficult as the years go by. Age-related medical conditions like arthritis, dementia and poor eyesight can make getting things done on your own more difficult than they need to be.

Community support services for the elderly are personalised services that are designed to help an elderly individual under your care live as independently as possible.

The services are provided by qualified caregivers who can assist the person under your care with household tasks, accompany them on outings and help them stay connected with family and friends.

What are the benefits?

Clinical services

Around the clock health services are available to assist the person under your care during a medical emergency. Depending on the needs of the person under your care, they may receive services like physiotherapy and dietary advice.

Counselling

Getting used to assisted living can be difficult for some elderly individuals. However, many community support service providers may offer counselling to help the person under your care with their emotional and psychological challenges during this time.

In-home services

Instead of settling into a new accommodation, the person under your care may choose to remain in their own home and receive support. 

Carers will assist the person under your care with daily tasks that they may have difficulty with, such as cleaning, taking care of pets and shopping for groceries.

Tailored support

The kinds of support and the degree of support the person under your care receives can be customised to fit the individual needs. This way, they can have more control over the care they receive, allowing them to be more independent.
