How Home Care is helping Hermoine
7 April 2022 in Home Care
Hermoine was among the first residents of MYVISTA Mirrabooka Retirement Living apartments moving in in early 2021. Since then she has benefited from having easy access to the additional support she’s needed to maintain her independence.
After many years together in their family home in Dianella Hermoine and her husband Llew decided that Llew’s complex health needs would be better met in residential aged care. Llew came to live at Mirrabooka Residential Aged care and Hermoine decided that the bright new apartments next door would make an ideal new home for her, close to Llew.
Hermoine had previously applied for a home care package for herself and when she came to live at MYVISTA Retirement Living Apartments, it made sense that MYVISTA Home Care division manage that service for her. Since moving in Hermoine has experienced her own health challenges that have required some periods of hospitalisation and respite care, but now she is relatively back on track and through her home care package she is receiving daily help in her apartment with personal care, and weekly transport and social support with shopping trips.
MYVISTA’s Home Care coordinator Simon is in regular touch with Hermoine and her daughter-in-law to determine how her services are going and adjusting them as her needs change.
With her current home care support in place, Hermoine is able to maintain her daily visit to Llew, and importantly, her own independence which she greatly values. Trips to the familiar Mirrabooka Shopping Centre with her support worker Leonie enable to her shop for herself and continue to her own banking. Since moving into her apartment, Hermoine has enjoyed the social events for residents and appreciates the convenience of being able to use the GP and physio located on the ground floor.
