Looking after yourself this Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner! After the year we’ve all had, it’s not surprising if you’re feeling a mix of excitement and anxiety about seeing family and friends for Christmas.

Although Australia has one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, it’s wise to take some precautions while enjoying long-awaited Christmas celebrations.

To make sure you can have a safe, social and stress-free festive season, we’ve pulled together some tips and advice.

Reward for a life of service

KinCare Customer David was recently acknowledged for his tireless community work when Kingborough Council in Tasmania awarded him Citizen of the Year.

Look and feel your best

Some extra support with personal care tasks like showering, dressing, taking medication and maintaining your appearance can help you look good and feel good. It can also give your loved ones peace of mind about your health and wellbeing.

A smooth transition from hospital to your home

When our Customer Catherine was discharged from hospital after major surgery, she was worried about returning home without anyone to help care for her. Connecting with KinCare’s hospital to home transition service through the hospital discharge planner gave Catherine access to the care and support she needed at home to regain her confidence and independence.

Providing opportunities for career development

When she joined KinCare in December 2017, Margaret was looking for a chance to grow her career in the aged care sector. Since then, she has made the most of the opportunities she has been given to challenge herself, learn new skills and step up into a new role.

Teamwork makes all the difference

After a stay in hospital, all our Customer Joan wanted was to return to her beloved home. She had missed the care and friendship provided by her family and team of KinCare Home Care Workers. Joan’s family credits KinCare’s Home Care Workers with lifting their mother’s spirits and supporting her back to good health.
