In-Home Care Takes a New Holistic Approach in SA
8 Reasons Why sacare is Revolutionising In-Home Care
The 2020 rollercoaster is officially in our past which calls for fresh energy, big changes, and creative thinking to take home support to new heights this year.
At sacare, we offer a holistic suite of multi-disciplinary services that are helping clients reach their functional and meaningful goals at home and in the community.
- Allied health is incorporated
Aside from sacare's traditional home services such as daily living activities, participants can have access to occupational therapy and physiotherapy which can help achieve functional goals at home, from getting out of bed, to cooking your own meals. This is part of the THRIVE Services, click here for more details.
“Tammie my OT is amazing, she’s helping me achieve goals that I didn’t think were possible. One of my goals was to cook healthier meals using my own veggies, I now have a huge veggie garden thanks to Tammie.” – David, OT Participant

- Clinical Nursing team oversee services
sacare understands that some clients have more complex needs and require clinical procedures that go beyond regular daily living activities, such as wound care, continence and catheter management. Our registered nurses work with support workers to continuously upskill.
“We run training sessions at our head office and in our client’s homes, and we create the education modules themselves. We act as a support team for the community clients and love to drop in regularly to see them and their families.” – Clinical Nursing Team

- Access to world-class facilities
All community clients who participate in occupational therapy or physiotherapy have free access to The Gums, which includes a gymnasium, hydrotherapy pool and sensory gardens. Read more about The Gums here.

- Wellbeing is looked after
The team understands that meaningful goals and fulfilling your wellbeing is just as important as functional goals, or in some cases, even more important! Which is why we incorporate Life Goal Mentors through the Social and Community participation service. The team is dedicated to helping you discover your meaningful goals and finding solutions to achieve them.

- Choose support workers online
We understand that sometimes it’s important to have your own control on which support workers you want to work with, which is why we'll be launching mid-2021 an online platform where clients can discover support workers in their area suited for their needs.
