Since our inception, we’ve been empowering customers by providing a range of innovative services, tailored to meet individual needs. Working with you in partnership, our experienced, friendly, helpful and reliable staff will take the time to get to know you, supporting you to maintain your wellbeing and to continue living safely, independently and confidently in your own home.
It can be daunting when the things you have always done start to get a bit harder to manage. We can assist you to identify your strengths, capacities and work with you to identify opportunities for you to continue doing what you love.
Sometimes knowing that you have someone there to help with the household chores is all you need to feel confident and in control. Maybe it’s walking the dog, cleaning the house, help with the weekly shop or the laundry. Just Better Care can tailor support to meet these needs.
Being able to share a cuppa, get out of the house for a few hours, or connect with people you know and trust, is beneficial to a persons wellbeing. Whether you want to plan activities, or just to know that someone you enjoy spending time with will be there at specified times, Just Better Care can tailor support to meet these needs.
Fancy a trip to the nursery and an afternoon of gardening? Care to take in a movie or play? Enjoy playing cards or arts and crafts? Supporting you to engage in activities you love, and identifying ways to maintain your chosen levels of independence is what we do best.
At Just Better Care we specialise in higher levels of support for people who may have very complex needs: memory loss or dementia; high care services including personal care, nursing care or palliative care and other specialised services such as continence management.
I am proud of the difference I make every day in my role, particularly within our local Aboriginal community. This role is much more than meets the eye.
My role as a Support Worker is diverse and meaningful, I see the positive impact I have on the lives of my customers and their families.
Shortly after services with Just Better Care I had a major lifestyle change occur, which had the potential to send me into a nursing home, which is something I'm at pains to avoid, one call to the local friendly Just Better Care team and I had access supports I needed to remain safe and indepedent at home.
