Keeping clients connected

Barley’s level of independence and connection to his local community has been strengthened since he started receiving home care services from mecwacare.

As a valued mecwacare care client since September 2021, Barley receives a variety of services to support him to live independently at home, allowing him to maintain his freedom and sense of self.

Receiving domestic assistance ensures that Barley can stay living in his own home. Regular cleaning, assistance with shopping, delivery of meals and gardening services at home allow Barley to focus on his health and independence.

Where older people have limited mobility, there is an increased chance of becoming isolated.

In addition to receiving regular physiotherapy through mecwacare’s home care services, Barley has received assistance in the purchase of equipment to enhance his mobility.

“Through mecwacare and the support they offer me, I have been able to acquire mobility aids which has given me my independence and has helped me to connect to the community,” Barley said.

“It has had a significant impact on my life.”

Each of the services Barley receives are facilitated by his care advisor, who maintains a strong relationship with each of their clients to ensure a smooth and efficient delivery of services.

This is one of the points that Barley most enjoys as it provides an opportunity for Barley to feel secure, to grow his confidence and to maintain his quality of life.
