Older people are generally happier, healthier and more connected to their communities when they continue to live in their own homes. Most want to delay entry to a retirement village or nursing home for as long as possible. The Whiddon Group’s Community Care services are designed to assist elderly people to live competently and safely in their own homes.
Services are located in Narrabri, South West Sydney, Newcastle, Far North Coast, Bathurst and Mid North Coast areas. They offer Commonwealth funded services incorporating Community Aged Care Packages (CACPs) and Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH) packages.
The services offered are designed to improve the overall health, wellbeing and independence of clients and are tailored to their specific needs. Types of services include: assistance with personal care including bathing, toileting and dressing; housekeeping and meal preparation; nursing care including wound care, assistance with medications and continence management; transport; respite care; and social support including outings and shopping assistance.
