Are Your Loved Ones Ageing OK?
We know that most Australians want to continue living independently at home as they get older. They’ve often run their homes, businesses and families all their lives and feel as though maintaining independence will be the key to staying active and engaged. Although this is not always the case and allowing someone to provide assistance actually provides the freedom to keep doing the things they love.
It’s crucial the help package is tailored to suit the needs of the individual, help options can range from assistance with mundane daily tasks all the way through to transport and installation of safety features around the house. In most cases it’s the simple coordination of social activities that plays the most important role in healthy ageing.
Annette Chennell from The Benevolent Society joins us to highlight some of the different services on offer for someone in need of assistance, no matter what the level, to help age healthily.
