Homecare during severe weather
Homecare workers assist elderly and vulnerable people with a range of personal care tasks like:
- getting up
- washing and dressing
- eating and drinking
- preparing for bed at night
- other domestic tasks
Essential frontline services like home care remain a priority in severe weather, and we provide it all year round. In recent years’ heavy snowfall, our staff have made every effort to visit users, which includes using four-wheel drive vehicles. We also prioritise our most vulnerable customers and people with specific medical needs.
You can help your community by keeping an eye on vulnerable neighbours, friends and relatives during severe weather.
