Senior Helpers is a trusted provider of in-home services, recognised for quality care. Senior Helpers’ Concierge Care and Specialty Services now extends their existing services into the general population and into retirement and aged care communities. The services have been developed to meet demand from families and persons living in independent, assisted living and residential communities.

Concierge Services

These services differ from standardised services, in that they may only be needed once rather than ongoing.

Independent Services
Day Surgery Support

Senior Helpers can support you or a family member throughout the Day Surgery experience. If a family member is not able to be there with their loved one, our experienced staff can step in for you. Services can be adapted to your own situation and can include:

  • Accompanying the client to preoperative appointments
  • Transport to and from Day Surgery
  • Companionship during the recovery time
  • Staying overnight
  • Accompanying the client to postoperative appointments

Acute and Post-Hospital services

If you or a family member are scheduled for surgery, or following a medical problem, the process can be overwhelming. Not only coping with surgery, but the worry that accompanies unexpected surgery or medical illness can throw life into turmoil. Senior Helpers have services to help smooth the process and give you peace of mind.

After-hospital support

Returning home after an acute illness or surgery is daunting. Although we look forward to being at home and to sleep in our own bed again, the reality is, our energy levels and often our physical abilities are temporarily altered because of the surgery or illness. Senior Helpers offers non-medical support services tailored to meet the needs of adults of any age returning home after hospitalisation. Services include Companion and Personal care and can be arranged pre-hospitalisation or when preparing for discharge. You can design your preferred services or select one of our Post-hospital Packages.

Wellness Watch

When you need to travel for extended periods with business or take an extended annual holiday, leaving an elderly relative behind is a concern, even if they are well and independent. Sometimes the telephone or Skype are just not enough. Senior Helpers’ Wellness Watch is a non-invasive service that is available to keep contact with your loved one while you are away. Services can be customised to your needs and preferences. However, the basic program consists of:

  • Weekly phone call from a delegated member of our staff
  • A one-hour visit for a cup of tea and companionship every two weeks with our staff delegate
  • A sole point of contact for you in relation to your family member
  • A monthly report from our team delegate regarding your relative’s wellbeing.
