Platinum (Self Funded) – Home Support Services

Platinum (Self Funded)

HSS’ Platinum service covers every aspect of care our clients would need to remain independent within their own home – from Nursing Care, Health Monitoring, Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy, to meal preparation, personal care, laundry, domestic duties and assisted outings if required.

All services are tailored to our clients needs and cover all levels of care including blocks of care, live-in care and 24 hour care.

Ongoing communication and monitoring between our client, their family, GP and our health care team ensures that the appropriate level of care is in place at all times.
