Socialising and getting involved with your community is an important part of staying happy and healthy at your own home. It is known that a number of our seniors suffer from social isolation. Sensible Care believes that helping our care recipients to get out and about and engage with friends and their communities is an important and necessary component of our services.
Even if you are not driving anymore, Sensible Care can help you with transportation services for either your one-off appointments or regular activities. Sensible Care's professional and friendly support workers can help you to prepare for the trip, assist you at the destination, and make sure you return home safely.
We can help you with your:
- Social outings
- Medical appointments
- Hairdresser or barber appointments
- Visiting friends, family or loved ones
Social Support and Community Access
At Sensible Care, we make the effort to know you as an individual and include in your care plan activities that you miss. Having regard to your preferences, our professional and friendly carers can take you to day trips to the movies or theatre shows, museum visits, meetings at your community interest group or a simply to a stroll at the gardens.
We can also help find you free activities and social opportunities in your local community. Regular craft classes, social groups or fitness groups can help you maintain wellness and make new connections.
