At CARE ON CALL we understand that times have changed...
We want to to make sure that your loved one is taken care of when you cannot be there. We can help you and your family to get the best care you need, share responsibilities or just give you time to rest or get out. We will support you to make informed decisions and make sure your relationships stay healthy and provide the help you need.
CARE ON CALL is the perfect solution to keep you safe in your own home for as long as possible.
Do not give up independence in temporary situations. To lose control, creates fear and self-doubt. People are very aware of a decline in mobility and thus decrease their activities over time, leading to isolation. They are aware that they need help long before they reach out. A crisis might be the turning point for many with life changing consequences.
The geriatric assessment is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary assessment designed to evaluate an elderly person's functional ability, physical health, cognition and mental health and socio-environmental circumstances. It includes an extensive review of prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal products, as well as a review of immunisation status. We believe that everybody deserves to age with dignity. Every individual experiences ageing as a personal journey and needs personal support. We have a range of valuable resources and work as a team to support you. We look at every situation in a holistic way to support you in all aspects of life. An initial assessment is done on the first visit to evaluate what the care requirements would be. We assess mobility, activities of daily living, cognitive function, medication and prescriptions, fall risk and frailty, medical history and observe for areas of concern and care requirements. Baseline information help to monitor progress. Follow up assessments will be done and will indicate the rate of progress or decline. Care plans and goals will be set according to your ability.
Care and elderly care recommendations and referrals will be made in concerning areas. Care will be discussed with clients or their family. Alternative care is a way of living. We know how to enable and encourage you to move a little more every day.
Care will be facilitated and provided on your request only. All services will be quoted for after an assessment is done and recommendations has been made. Referrals will be discussed and will be charged at an additional cost. No referral will be made without permission and agreement on costs. Service with a caregiver or companion will only start after a financial agreement has been reached and all documentation has been completed and signed.
