Why home health care?
Home health care and support is all about ensuring that ill, ageing or disabled patients receive high quality, personal and compassionate care by offering them personalised services in the convenience of their own home.
The key benefit of in-home services is having the things you love close at hand; your favourite chair, your beloved pets, enjoying the backyard garden, friends and family dropping by, and a homely kitchen for morning coffee.
BENEFITS FOR PATIENTS:
At First Call, we find our clients are more relaxed, happier and healthier at home; they feel more independent, confident and comfortable.
For ageing and housebound individuals, in-home care enables them to remain as functional and independent as possible, providing a much higher sense of security and dignity. Studies have shown that patients recuperating from illness, injury or surgical procedures heal more quickly and successfully when recovering at home than in a hospital or other medical facility.
BENEFITS FOR CAREGIVERS AND LOVED ONES:
Family members often serve as the primary caregivers to their ill, elderly or disabled loved ones. In-home support helps family caregivers to enjoy more quality time with their housebound loved ones; while the families who are unable to serve as primary caregivers have the benefit of knowing that their loved ones are receiving professional, compassionate and personalised care in the convenience of their own homes.
THE PRIMARY BENEFITS OF HOME HEALTH CARE and support INCLUDE:
- Delivered in the comfort of the patient's home
- Easier for family and friends to visit
- Promotes healing and provides more safety from infections
- Allows more freedom and independence
- More affordable than inpatient care
- Tailored to the needs of each individual patient
- Reduces re-hospitalisations
First Call provides a wide range of in-home health care and support services that enable people who are frail aged or disabled to continue to live independently within their local community.
