Never doubt that life may throw a shocking curveball at you or a loved one with no warning. This is one of the main reasons why we encourage everyone to have their personal estate sorted out. You don’t want to suddenly find yourself in need of care and unable to get it.
One of the major items that you must have in place is a power of attorney. If the worst should happen and you are incapacitated, you must have someone to help get you the care that you need. Of course, this is a worst-case scenario.
A more likely occurrence is that a sudden injury or illness means that you are unable to do the things you used to be able to around the house. While a lot of people tend to call on family members to do these things for them, this can put a strain on the relationships as they may feel that, whenever they come around to visit, they are put to work.
We are not saying that this isn’t an option, but perhaps it shouldn’t be the long-term answer to the situation. The best course of action is to contact MyAgedCare and get assessed for home care. This will allow funding to be allocated to helping you get the best of what you need. It may be as simple as someone coming around to do the gardening or cleaning the house, but it does mean that you will be able to stay at home while you recover or to focus on rehabilitation.
If you were the driver of the household, home care can also provide transportation for you to go to and from appointments, out to do the shopping, or to a social occasion. There is no reason to let a sudden, unexpected mishap ruin your life.
We have helped so many people on the Sunshine Coast get back some of the best parts of their life, and we can help you as well. Contact Home Care Assistance Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay and talk to one of our experts today to find out your options.
