- Bathing, showering and sponging;

In order for us to provide the best care, in the safest way possible for you and our Care Workers, we need to work with you to firstly ensure that:
- Your home is assessed to be a safe work environment and Care Workers only do the tasks assigned to them;
- Your medication is provided in an approved aid such as a Webster pack or dosette box; and your health is stable and does not require monitoring by medical personnel.
- We will also work with you to identify and agree on the personal care tasks that will best help you, prior to starting to provide services to you.
