In-Home Care Services

Whatever their needs, our carers can help

The great thing about Benetas is how easy it is to adapt our services to your loved one’s needs. With diverse domestic and clinical care services available, you’re free to choose just one or a combination of many. 

In-Home Care Services

We also offer all types of support including one-off, short-term or regular, ongoing care. We can also help you get the most out of your government funded package.

Home and personal care

We’re here to support your loved one – whatever that might mean for them. Some of the typical services we help with include:

  • Housework: We can take care of the washing, ironing or vacuuming – or whatever else your loved one needs – giving them more time to enjoy life without the tiring chores. 
  • Shopping: If getting to and from the supermarket is taking its toll on your loved one, a Benetas carer can either join them or perform the entire trip for them (including carrying and unpacking).
  • Cooking and diet management: Does your loved one have special dietary needs? Is cooking nutritious meals becoming too much? If so, Benetas Home Care can help plan and prepare healthy home-cooked meals.
  • Transport: We understand that you can’t always be there to take your loved one to and from appointments and events. So why not let Benetas Home Care lend a hand?
  • Day to day tasks: Tasks such as showering, dressing, grooming and toileting are basic human needs that not everyone can manage alone. Whatever your loved one requires, Benetas Home Care can help.
  • Companionship: Whether it’s a simple chat, short stroll, game of cards or a cup of tea, we believe companionship is often key to an older person’s vitality.

Respite services

At Benetas, we understand and greatly respect the role of unpaid carers – family and friends who step up to help the older people in their lives. They are often the reason their loved ones are able to stay at home for as long as they do.

However, carers need caring too. Which is why carer respite is so important.

If it’s time for a break, Benetas can step in at short notice. We can care for your loved one while you recharge – ensuring they’re well looked after when you’re not there.

Accessing in-home care and its costs

If your loved one is eligible for a government Home Care Package, most costs will be taken care of. You may be asked to make a co-contribution (or fee) which is calculated based on income and assets.

Remember: because Benetas is a not-for-profit organisation, all revenue is redirected back into our services to continually improve the quality of care we provide.
