A special celebration on Thursday evening marked the official launch of Victor Harbor-based senior home care service, My Care Solution.
Over 70 guests were in attendance including City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp and Mayo MP Rebekha Sharkie, who hosted Federal Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt for his full one-day South Australia visit just two days earlier.
Regional Care Manager of My Care Solution, Corrie Burnside, said their unique model of home care has been welcomed with open arms.
“We provide dedicated care management for every client, around-the-clock home care and one-stop access to any home service that our clients may need,” she said.
“It is worlds away from the one-size-fits all model of home care that told clients they’ll be showered on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and taken shopping on a Saturday.”
Brian Rosey, a My Care Solution client, said his quality of life and wellbeing has been more tenable and comfortable since joining My Care Solution.
“My association with My Care Solution began when I met Corrie at the local mobility equipment store, stressed out of my brain and wondering how I could be the main carer for my wife when she had always been my carer,” Brian said.
“I didn’t know about home help and what was available, but Corrie put me on to Carers SA and ACAT, and now my wife and I both have Home Care Packages.”
My Care Solution, situated on Victoria Street in Victor Harbor, provides a range of home care services including nursing care, respite care, assisted transport, meal preparation, social support, overnight care and 24/7 care. My Care Solution also offers specialist services in the areas of dementia, mental health, motor neurone disease, Parkinson’s disease and palliative care.
“At the very core of our business is a belief that people feel comfortable and safe at home,” Corrie said.
“One of our key differences is that we assist individuals and families through the Home Care Package process at no cost.”
“It’s our view that with the right services and support, people can remain at home, even with the most complex of care needs.”
