REASONS  FOR  THE  HOME  CARE

Everybody has reasons why they do things ,but our reasons for Home care are as follows;

Making sure clients who normally would be doing things for themselves, can’t do them anymore or have never been able to do them, due to one form of a disability.

And with the new diagnosis of several diseases such as cancer, neurological conditions, heart diseases,stroke,orthopedic conditions,dementia,pneumonia etc, making the lives of this clients unbearable, and  knowing that they also deserve at least some form of normal life, we’ll make sure the clients get the utmost care. This could be in form of rehabilitation to restore some form of functional abilities and normalcy.

Helping families with instructions and support in caring for their loved ones, either after having an operation(post operative care),and also helping them administer medication.

And overrall,helping them with their personal care/hygiene needs.
