Calvary Community Care has been supporting people in their own homes and communities for over twenty years.
We deliver a range of aged care, disability and other support services that enable independence, improve social connections and promote positive health and well-being.
Our three core service areas that provide practical help with daily living include:
Calvary Community Care’s professional Support Workers are trained to help with everyday personal care tasks such as: showering, dressing, medication prompting, incontinence management and mobility.
Specialist credentialed support and community nurses can support more complex and specialised needs. Credentialed care includes tasks such as compression stocking application; blood glucose monitoring, ear and eye drop administration and catheter care.
Services are offered during the day, evening or for an overnight sleepover. Our 24-hour care ensures that support is available in the home at all times.
Calvary Community Care can also provide help with basic tasks such as kitchen and bathroom cleaning, floor mopping, vacuuming, laundry, changing linen and meal preparation.Close
Respite care provides short-term relief for carers so they can take a break. Carers may need to balance family or work commitments with their carer role, or need to take a short break or holiday.
Respite can also mean an opportunity for the person being cared for to experience a new or enjoyed activity or hobby, to meet new people or try new things.
Respite care can be provided in the home, within day centres or at overnight cottages. We also provide support groups and education resources for carers.Close
Coming home after a hospital visit can sometimes be challenging, especially if family members are working, live interstate or aren’t available to help. We can arrange a pick up from the hospital and help with shopping, pharmacy visits, meal preparation, housework and personal care. Overnight sleepover support is also available.
Our Hospital to Home services can be booked before hospital admission, during the hospital stay or before discharge.
Socialising, meeting people and having a good chat are all important parts of community life. Calvary’s friendly Support Workers can offer companionship, provide transport, help you get out and about in the local community and participate in the activities that matter most.
We can help with shopping trips, visiting relatives or friends in residential care, walks in the park, swimming pool visits, fishing, sport matches, club activities, social events, medical appointments and more.Close
Calvary Community Care can help improve your home’s accessibility, safety and security. We provide regular or one-off home maintenance, gardening and repair jobs to keep your home in good condition.
We can also organise minor home modifications such as ramp and rail installations to improve accessibility, mobility and safety.Close
Enjoy an independent lifestyle at home with the added security of an innovative and reliable telecare solution.
Calvary’s range of personal alarms, fall detectors and motion sensors are linked to a 24-hour monitoring centre that can offer immediate assistance at the press of a button.
Telecare solutions can be customised to suit the specific needs of clients with dementia, epilepsy or with a tendency to fall. In-home carer solutions are also available.Close
