You’re not alone. We’re here to help

After surgery, during chemotherapy or radiation treatments, our hospital sitters can monitor and provide companionship, run errands or seek medical attention. They also enable family members to go home and rest, knowing your loved one won’t be alone.

Our Cancer Care can make the transition home and recovery from sessions easier and more comfortable. Enabling oncology patients to focus solely on their recovery, a Home Care Assistance Carer can prepare meals, do light housework, help with bathing, dressing and personal hygiene, give medication reminders, provide companionship, help with exercise and provide transportation to and from doctors’ appointments or treatments. Carers promote recovery by reducing stress, fatigue and depression.

Services

Transportation and Errands

Driving may be too difficult for you or your loved one while going through or recovering from cancer treatment. Our Carers can provide transportation to and from ongoing treatment or rehabilitation appointments, shopping, to support group sessions and more. Our Carers can also run errands such as picking up groceries or medications from the pharmacy allowing the individual to stay home and rest.

Nutrition and Meal Preparation

Carers can cook meals based on our proprietary Balanced Care Method, which emphasises healthy, balanced nutrition and regular calorie intake in line with the doctor’s recommendations. When undergoing Cancer treatment, large meals can be difficult, so Carers can encourage eating healthy snacks throughout the day or drinking nutritional supplements.

Medication Reminders and Assistance

It can be difficult to keep on top of the many different medications during or after cancer treatments. Carers provide reminders on which medications to take, when and with what. Removing any worry about keeping it all in check.

Light Housekeeping & Personal Hygiene

After surgery or during chemotherapy or radiation treatments, it can be difficult to accomplish some of the more common tasks we’re used to doing on our own. Health and safety are top priorities, which is why we’re here to support you or your loved one with housekeeping and personal hygiene needs such as laundry and bathing. We provide assistance to achieve these daily tasks, while providing guidance and support to maintain independence.

Support During Rehabilitation

Maintaining the right level of exercise and adhering to any prescribed physical therapy is an important part of recovery after treatment. Carers provide support during what is often an emotionally and physically draining activity. They provide encouragement but also ensure over exertion is avoided. Our Cancer Carers are there every step of the way.

I looked long and thoroughly before I selected a care provider for my husband who has dementia. Being with Home Care Assistance for almost a year, has confirmed all my expectations. And more.As a... carer I feel very supported by David and Meg. They are always available by phone or email, and this means a lot. But perhaps the best quality of their organisation is the high calibre and personalised choice of all the care givers they have provided for us - whether it be someone to spend time with my husband or someone to slash our overgrown yard.I have no hesitation in recommending Home Care Assistance - and, indeed, have already done so.Pamela Payneread more
The most helpful, caring, supportive and flexible team of people to assist with our elderly loved ones.I am so grateful for all you had done for my Mum.... ❤️❤️❤️read more
The carers who looked after my elderly mother were without exception highly motivated, caring and compassionate. Not only was Mum looked after supremely well, she was provided with wonderful... companionship, a level of independence that would have been impossible without the help of her special carers, and a lot of fun. It is difficult to put into words how much this meant to her entire family! Keep up the good work.read more
We have the highest praise for HCA as an organisation, and deep gratitude and respect for the people involved - all the way from Dave & Meg at the top right through office staff and on to the... wonderful warm carers who have meant so much to our mother over the last three years. From our experience HCA offers a service far beyond the general expectations of the aged care sector, and we have no hesitation recommending them. Thank you HCA, for all that you've done for Mum - and for us by extension.read more
David and his team have been outstanding in the help they have offered my father. i would highly recommend them to anyone. First class job!
We had a couple of unsatisfactory situations with care providers as we found the service unsatisfactory and disappointing. We considered cancelling the idea of any home care service until we found... Home Care Assistance. The BEST ever care. Communication is fabulous, information is succinct and they are affable and approachable. From the first contact with Geoff, to liaising with Kelly, I knew we had found the service that delivers what we expected to receive from a care provider. Thankyou you good people, for your care and consideration of our needs.read more
I can't thank the team at Home Care Assistance North Coast enough for their help with my Dad. David led us through the Home Care Package details with honesty and integrity, and they were able to... organise a lawn mowing service as well as a carer to visit Dad.My only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time with the team as Dad has now moved into an Aged Care Facility. Thank you again.read more
Home Care Assistance North Coast has really put the CARE back into my aged care experience for my mother.Right from the beginning communication with management (David and Meg) has been excellent... with all of my requests and questions answered patiently, promptly and cheerfully.Due to Home Care Assistance's policy of tender care my mother has had hand massages, foot baths and massages, diversional therapy involving music and art, poetry and encouraging Mum to interact positively.Domestic tasks are attended to cheerfully.Blue ribbon service and red carpet treatment for their valued clients. Highly recommended!read more
Our family has benefited from the excellent support and services from David, Meg and the team at Home Care Assistance North Coast for the past couple of years. I had an extensive list of questions... when we were deciding which provider to go with. David answered promptly, and impressed me with his empathy, accessibility (available after hours, weekends), and ability to tailor a package to meet our particular needs. Add to that the best value for package dollars, and it was an easy decision to go with HCA North Coast.The staff employed by HCA North Coast have been excellent. David was able to source staff who were a good match for my Dad’s personality. As our needs evolved, it was easy to change any aspect of the care provided.I am very happy to recommend Home Care Assistance North Coast, for anyone looking for quality care for their loved one.read more
So blessed. Such a wonderful team to take care of me, keeping my life simple and enabling the very best I could wish for. Thank you, Meg and Dave!
