Home Care

Looking after an elderly relative, disabled child or terminally ill partner can be a very stressful and lonely experience. For many it often consumes their life for several years and can put a strain on other relationships, let alone their work and financial commitments.

Providers of 'voluntary' home care have traditionally been forgotten by large sectors of society and government. Recently though, all this has begun to change. Support groups for home carers and even financial assistance through government and other sources, such as insurers, has become increasingly accessible for the thousands of people who have had to dedicate a part of their life to home care.

Providers of professional home care too are becoming better recognised for the work that they do. Support networks and professional bodies are on hand to assist and advise on all matters from a standard code of practice to the rights and welfare of the care workers themselves.

Home care training is also provided by some organisations, along with news and views on the latest issues and legislation to be passed that relates to home care work.
