Household Tasks & Cleaning

We can assist with everyday tasks such as washing, ironing, mopping or vacuuming. It could be as simple as changing the sheets, folding and putting your clothes away or assisting with odd jobs.

Gardening & Home Maintenance

Is maintaining your garden becoming too taxing? Are there maintenance issues you can't fix alone? Get a helping hand with light gardening or home and garden maintenance.

Pet Care

We can take your furry friend out for a walk, or lend a hand in grooming or feeding your companion.

Equipment & Home modifications

Access equipment and technologies to help make your living experience more safe, comfortable and enjoyable. We can help you install alarm bells, emergency call systems, technological aids or make minor home modifications. You could also purchase walking frames, shower chairs or other items to assist you at home.

Personal Assistance

Day-to-day personal care can get hard to manage alone. Some days it might be more of a struggle than others. If this is the case, you could arrange for someone to shower and dress you, check on your well-being or stay on top of your medication schedule.

Diet & Health

Diet and nutrition is fundamental to your health and well being. Benetas can assist you to by preparing healthy home cooked meals to suit your dietary requirements. We can even assist with the grocery shopping.

In partnership with you, we create opportunities for you to stay connected and maintain your sense of purpose through companionship and involvement with the community.

Options include:

  • Visiting your local park, gardens or beach
  • Attending Benetas social calendar events
  • Visiting your friends and family
  • Going out for a meal with friends
  • Going to church
  • Going to your local gym or pool
  • Continuing your favourite hobby
  • Joining a social group
  • Joining a class or course
  • Getting to an appointment
  • Day trips to see a movie or visit the museum

It could be as simple as help getting to and from appointments, out to meet friends and family or just some companionship and a lunch. Getting to the beach or a local park might not be as easy anymore but with some assistance it might not be as out of reach as you think.

Using these services can help you avoid feeling isolated or lonely, and help keep you living your life and connecting with your community, friends, and family.

If you've just left hospital, or you’re unable to leave home, then an in-home nurse can bring the treatment to you. A qualified and compassionate in-home nurse will provide general support with things like wound management, diabetes management, implanting medical aids and provide mobility equipment. Or they can be more hands on with anti-coagulation and infusion therapy.

You can engage our highly skilled nursing carers as a one-off – or on a regular, ongoing basis. We also offer flexible arrangements, allowing you to choose one particular service or a combination of many.

Care Management Options

Partnership

Our lower cost Partnership Care Management option enables you to self-manage some components of your Home Care Package. We work in partnership to determine what you'd like to self-manage and the type of support you'd like from us. You might wish to manage your own budget, make your own referrals for services or generally be in more control of the co-ordination of your package.

We have shared responsibility in ensuring you feel supported, yet able to maintain your independence. This is a truly individualised option.

Partnership Care Management is 15% of your fortnightly Home Care Package budget.

Fully Supported

Our Fully Supported Care Management option includes our comprehensive assistance in planning, coordinating and booking your home care services. Together, we make decisions on how funds are spent and monitor your budget.

Your home care specialists will be your first point of contact to discuss your preferred services, your budget, coordinate your services, complete service referrals and to discuss your changing care needs. You can choose the type of support and contact you want from us, whether that be home visits, phone check-ins or a combination of both.

Fully Supported Care Management is 20% of your fortnightly Home Care Package budget.

 

Package Management

If you have a Home Care Package, you are required to pay Package Management fees. This covers ongoing administration and organisational activities required to coordinate your package.

At Benetas, the fee is 15% of your fortnightly Home Care Package budget.
