Services

MSH @ Home is proud to provide a full range of domiciliary care and support services to assist you and your family with basic home care needs and more complex requirements such as HIV / AIDS co-morbidity, neurological conditions and End-of-Life care.

Each service we provide is led by highly experienced nurses, and each personal care support worker is specifically recruited to ensure the changing needs of you and your family are met and understood.

Everyone is different, but the type of people accessing our services include:

  • Older people who need some help with getting up in the morning, or going to bed
  • Couples who would like some assistance for their partner, such as keeping on top of household chores
  • People who are physically disabled and who need assistance with the things that their disability prevents them from doing entirely by themselves
  • For people who have fairly constant care needs but do not wish to go into residential care, and wish to remain living in their own home, we can recommend two vetted and trusted Live-In Care services – The Good Care Group and Christies Care
  • People who have been discharged from hospital after illness or an operation requiring short term help until they are feeling fit enough to regain their old lifestyle
  • People who need respite care – a service for people who rely on a relative or friend for most of their care but would like to give that person a break from time to time
  • People who require some time out from home and would like someone to take them out for a couple of hours or for a day’s shopping
  • People who need a weekly pampering session with the chance to de-stress and increase wellbeing
