Types of Care
High-level care at SomerCare includes the provision of 24-hour nursing care, meals, laundry, cleaning, mobility, communication assistance and personal care. As with all SomerCare residents, our high care residents are treated with respect, dignity and compassion and are made to feel comfortable, safe and relaxed.
Our low-level care, designed for people who are able to maintain a fair level of independence, includes the provision of care and assistance with meals, laundry and personal care. All low-level care residents are monitored closely to ensure their level of care is adequate. They have access to a wide range of in-house and external activities, all designed to maintain and enhance physical and emotional health and wellbeing.
As a purpose-designed aging-in-place facility, SomerCare is able to provide a continuum of care for residents whose needs shift from low-level to high-level care over time. This provides residents and their families with peace of mind and stability through avoiding the necessity to relocate to another facility.
Short Term Stay
SomerCare offers short-term respite care and accommodation for those otherwise living at home. Often people visit SomerCare for a temporary stay when their carer needs a break, goes on holiday or the carer is unwell. Respite care is also available when you or your loved one has increased care needs due to a hospital stay or illness and would benefit from the expertise of an aged care home. Our respite care services can be used on a planned or emergency basis and all short-term respite care residents can participate in a wide range of lifestyle activities offered at SomerCare.
End of Life Care
At SomerCare we recognise the importance of palliative care. Our aim is to maintain the best quality of life possible for our residents. SomerCare is committed to ensuring a professional, dignified, comfortable and peaceful period of palliation and recognises the important support needed for residents and their loved ones as they say goodbye.
