Looking for home care in NSW's Northern Rivers?
Many people prefer to live at home but need a little help. Our goal is to help you get the support that you need to live independently at home for longer
Our goal is to help you get the support you need, whatever that is.
Help in and around your home
Tasks in the home might include vacuuming, mopping, hanging up the washing or cleaning the bathroom. Tasks around the garden might include cleaning out the gutters, keeping you pathways safe and clear, and help keeping your garden under control.
Assistance with personal care and hygiene
Support ranges from stand-beside showering for that extra reassurance to full assistance, including showering, toileting, shaving, bed transfers, compression stockings, dressing/undressing, and general body care.
A safe home - maintenance and modifications
Simple installations like grab rails, lever tap sets, and threshold ramps can make a difficult task easier and safer. Or perhaps there is a bit more work involved in making your house more liveable.
Post-hospital and short-term support
After a stay in hospital you may need some extra support at home while you recover. While in hospital you may be offered a 6-week community care service (often called ComPacks). Before you are discharged from Hospital, ask the hospital to send your ComPacks Service Request through to the team at HammondCare Northern Rivers.
Active social connections
HammondCare Northern Rivers offer a diverse range of weekly and monthly social groups and outings, catering to a variety of group sizes from intimate morning teas to a full coach outing.
Support for carers
If you are a carer, taking time out for yourself helps you to avoid fatigue and keep caring. Our Care Workers can come to your home and spend time with your 'significant other', or take them out to somewhere they would like to go.
