• Home Care
Many of us are house proud and having a clean and tidy house increases our quality of life and health and wellbeing. Consequently when we have difficulty maintaining our regular house cleaning these factors can be affected.
Our house cleaning services are known as home care. Home care is the regular clean that most householders would do on a weekly or fortnightly basis. It includes tasks such as tidying, vacuuming, mopping, cleaning bathrooms, toilets and kitchens, dusting, changing and making beds, doing laundry and ironing. The length of the shift and frequency will vary depending on the size of the house and the tasks required.
The heavier duty house cleaning tasks are classified as spring cleaning. Please click on the Spring Cleaning tab on the left hand side to find out more about this service.
If you are interested in home care either as one off or an ongoing service please contact our care coordination team.

• Personal Care
Maintaining personal care standards is integral to our functioning and our health and wellbeing. It allows us to maintain our quality of life. Looking after your personal care can be quite challenging when your fitness levels are compromised.
Personal care covers the full range of assistance associated with personal hygiene and physical well being. The requirement may simply be for reassurance, to have someone nearby when showering or to assist with more difficult tasks such as drying toes and backs.
At the other end of the spectrum we can cater to higher needs by providing assistance with transferring using lifting equipment and other aids, application of condom drainage, catheter care etc. In this case a workplace assessment and preferably an assessment by an Occupational Therapist will take place prior to service starting.
If you are interested in receiving assistance with personal care tasks or would like to discuss the available options please contact our care coordination team.
• Respite Care
The purpose of respite care is to give primary carers a break from their caring responsibilities. It involves providing the client with companionship or socialisation. It can also involve home care and personal care tasks.
The respite may occur in the clients home while the primary carer goes out or alternatively the client can be taken out of the home on a social outing.
Our respite assistance can be tailored to meet the individual’s needs and is really only limited by your imagination. Let us help you to continue to enjoy the activities that matter most.

• Overnight Care
Nights can be the most difficult time for some clients and their families, particularly during periods or illness or following a hospital admission.
Overnight care involves a support worker attending to a client’s needs overnight. The shifts can either by inactive or active.
An active overnight is common for clients who experience disrupted sleep or require constant monitoring. An active shift involves the support worker remaining awake all night to attend to the client needs. The service is charged at an hourly rate.
The primary purpose of an inactive overnight is to give the client the security of someone else in the house during the night. The support worker is expected to sleep and to only need to get up once of twice during the night to assist the client. The period of an inactive overnight is 8hrs . All additional hours are considered active and are billed at an hourly rate.
If you would like to discuss overnight care in further detail please contact our care coordination team.
• 24hr Care
At Omni-Care we offer a 24 hour care service for clients who are not able to be on their own, but are not yet ready to leave their home and move into a residential care environment.
Clients requiring 24 hour care can have varying degrees of capability. The requirement may be for constant supervision and support with all activities of daily living or the requirement may be primarily for companionship.
The support may be classified as active or inactive depending on the physical assistance needed by the client, whether they sleep through the night and the other tasks required in the shift. An assessment is completed for all new 24hr clients to determine their needs, tasks to be completed in the shift etc and therefore the degree of activity.
If you would like to make enquiries about 24 hour care please contact our care coordination team.
