Personal Home Care Assistance & Respite

Personal and respite care are special services for aged and recovering individuals. This specialised care is designed to look after a person’s health and well-being. As a trusted personal care service provider, Nurse4U offers continuous support to help reduce reliance on others, providing first-class services for faster recovery in the comfort of your own home.

What is Personal Care?

Personal home care assistance covers many support services that will help you feel comfortable, aid in faster recovery and reduce your dependence on others. The Melbourne Personal Care Team at Nurse4U can assist with daily activities and homemaking for you or your loved one. We understand that the needs of every patient are unique, which is why we offer tailored personal care worker services. Some of the most common services we offer as part of our home and personal care in Melbourne include:

  • Dressing
  • Grooming
  • Hygiene maintenance
  • Bathing
  • Mobility
  • Medication reminders
  • Meal planning and preparations
  • Elderly companionship

Whether we’re providing you with help with personal care or offering residential respite care, we can assure you that you will feel comfortable in the presence of our professionals. You can feel confident knowing your personal care assistant in Victoria will always go the extra step to help you feel completely comfortable.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care provided by Nurse4U allows your full-time caretaker to have additional support and take some time off. Our services include NDIS Respite, NDIS short term (STA) & NDIS medium accommodation (MTA) and are designed in such a way that they provide comfort for you or your primary caretaker to get some relief. These short-term services allow the primary caretaker to rest and recharge.

In most cases, the care provided by our Melbourne personal care team is an alternate solution for people providing primary care. Caring for people can be emotionally draining. If primary caretakers do not get rest or breaks, they can soon tire and experience burnout. As leading NDIS personal care providers and respite care providers, Nurse4U can provide the much-needed break caretakers require.

Some people seek these services to relax for a period of time, while others opt for professional respite care in Melbourne to attend an important meeting or go on a holiday.
Our stay-at-home personal care and respite care are tailored to meet the client’s and caregivers’ needs. It could be for an hour, a day or a few days.

We can assist with the following:

  • Private support workers for dementia patients
  • Person centered care for nursing home residents
  • Person centred care in aged care
  • Person centred care for a disability
  • Personal care support and respite care for aboriginal people
  • Help for individuals to recover from sickness or injury
