Home Care Services Bendigo
The term “home care” is very broad and for us at Sunshine Disabilities and Home Care Services Bendigo, it can really mean any task associated with living at home and part of the wider community. Home care does not only refer to tasks like cleaning or home maintenance. It’s any domestic assistance provided to you, to help you enable living at home and achieve the best quality of life possible.
We are flexible about the home care services we offer and help you with the most challenging tasks, so you can get back to an enjoyable life. We’re not just one of your everyday aged care providers who do their job quickly and go home – we take the time to make sure everything is perfect for you.
Each of our clients is unique, and we love that about them. We know that having her bedding changed every week means the world to Bessie. And we know that Graham looks forward to his weekly shopping trip with Judith more than anything else. It’s the little things – those fun stimulating activities – that can make the most significant difference in how you feel about things.
Knowing that there is a clear plan in place, and someone you can call on when you need some help, leaves everyone feeling reassured and less worried about the future. That’s what you’ll get from our experienced team at Home Care.
NDIS Providers Bendigo
As an accredited National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) service provider, we provide services to adults with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disabilities. Our role is to support our clients to live rich, fulfilling and connected lives and help them reach their individual goals.
Finding an appropriate NDIS service provider isn’t always easy. There are a lot of service providers out there, and each seems to offer different services. Many providers are new to the industry and don’t have experience in working within the NDIS guidelines.
We have been working with NDIS funded clients since the scheme commenced. We can explain how the NDIS works and help you build a service plan that will enable you to feel more independent and involved in the community.

Many of our NDIS clients use their funding to assist with daily living tasks, such as personal care and grooming, shopping and cooking and cleaning at home. However, we also provide many services beyond these, which can help increase independence and improve overall health and well-being.

Dementia Care Bendigo
When you or someone you love is diagnosed with dementia, it is normal to feel shocked and worried. But, a diagnosis can also come as a relief, explaining the worrying feelings of anxiety, confusion or changes in personality and providing a clear direction forward. Once you have a diagnosis of dementia, you can take action to help you stay in control and make a plan for the future.
Many people with dementia live in their own homes, and are active in their local community. With treatment, strategies and supports, you may be able to live the same lifestyle for many more years to come. When you receive a dementia diagnosis, contact our personal carers to get started on that plan and to get some supports in place right away. We have a range of health professionals who know the value of an early intervention approach. This will help you set up a support network with you as your needs change.
From some occasion al help with the tasks associated with managing a home, through to more ongoing assistance with providing tasty meals, medication and personal care, our skilled team can help you to be as independent as possible. We can adapt our services as your condition progresses. We’ll match you with staff who will get to know you and who can offer specialist dementia care.
