Personal care

ECHO helps with daily self-care tasks through our trained and experienced support workers. Our goal is to enable our client to actively participate in their own care to the best of their ability, while maintaining their independence and dignity.

We develop a care plan with the client, clinician and/or carer. A personal care component could include such things as:

  • shower assistance
  • dressing
  • medication monitoring
  • blood sugar monitoring
  • eye drops, nasal drops and respiratory inhalers
  • transdermal patches
  • support stockings

Our support workers are trained to Certificate 3 Aged Care level or higher and receive ongoing training to enhance their skills and ensure they’re up to date.
