When staying in your own home is a priority, then leading Tasmanian Aged Care Provider, Care Assess, can help.
“We’re very excited to announce the release of our new website,” a company spokesman for Care Assess said, before adding, “The website’s focus is on ‘wellness model of care’ and the ‘wellness model of nursing.’”
The spokesman went on to explain that Care Assess, which is geared toward elderly Tasmanians, specializes in assessment and coordination of home care across Tasmania.
Established in 1999 and locally-owned as an independent health agency, Care Assess, according to the spokesman, provides health professionals and quality management of home support and community care.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, in June 2011, which is the last Census report, there were 82,100 people aged 65 years and over in Tasmania, making up 16.1 per cent of the state’s total population. This was an increase from 13.8 per cent in 2001.
Tasmania, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, had the highest proportion of people aged 65 years and over among the states and territories, just ahead of South Australia (15.9 per cent).
“Our mission is more people living well at home, across Tasmania,” the spokesman stressed. “Our strategy is to specialize in coordination of services enhanced by a brokerage model and a quality workforce to ensure effective management of direct care.”
As to what makes Care Assess different from everything else on the market, the spokesman noted, that their focus is on the individual in home customer/client, and its ability to take care of people who want to stay in their home longer.
All Care Assess services and operations are designed to comply with the Home Care Standards (“Standards”) under the Quality of Care Principles (1997), and are consistent with the Aged Care Act 1997, the spokesman reiterated.
In addition to that, company representatives believe Care Assess has in place an effective governance system, supported by a Quality Manager who works within an integrated Quality Management System.
“This is a very unique service within Tasmania, offered by very few other companies,” the spokesman said.
According to industry reports, a surge in the number of older Tasmanians wanting to stay in their homes has seen waiting lists for aged care services balloon.
As a solution Care Assess, the spokesman said, is helping more and more Tasmanians to live well at home.
The company provides a wide-range of services, each designed around individuals’ wellbeing, such as: Home Independence (HHIP) Program, a service funded under the HACC Program for Tasmanians who are finding daily tasks more difficult to perform and are motivated to work with health professionals to improve their quality of life; Post-Acute (PAP) Programs, a program for Tasmanians who need assistance when individuals get home from hospital, following an acute episode; Veterans Home Care Program (Assessment & Coordination), which provides eligible veterans living in the community with basic home care services, such as domestic assistance, personal care, care respite and safety-related home and garden maintenance.
But that’s not all: Care Assess empowers the community with services, such as Health Personnel, which provides nurses and allied health professional personnel to General Practitioners and GP Surgeries, Aged Care and Community Health Providers.
The company also offers access to its Home Care (Aged) Packages Program; Chronic Diseases Management; Hospital Avoidance; Exercise Physiology; After Hours Services and more.
