Below are some examples of how Better Living Homecare has assisted people to remain living independently in their home. The names have been changed

When Better Living first connected with Barbara she was in transitional care following a hospital stay and was on the waitlist for a Home Care
Package. Barbara had no family and her next of kin was a neighbour. Better Living Homecare were able to offer Barbara a Home Care Package.
Now Barbara is back in her home and is visited by a carer once a day to assist with shopping, cleaning and meal preparation. Thanks to her
package of care Barbara is now able to live independently in her own home. She attends two social groups in her local community. With the help
of carers she has been able to modify the way she uses her cooking appliances to prepare meals. Barbara also receives ongoing support from
her Better Living Homecare Case Manager.

month the family have a carer provide respite for a few hours so that they can undertake an outing as a family. Something they were previously
unable to do.

Kelly is a vibrant young teenager who is living with physical and intellectual disabilities. She is a much loved member of a large family, but
requires assistance to access her community and undertake activities with her peers. Better Living Homecare provide a carer to meet Kelly from
school and take her to her afternoon activities which include dancing and swimming. This takes the pressure off her parents who both work,
