Better Care

At Southern Cross Care we strive to provide the best in-home care for seniors and those with special needs. Our focus is on helping you maintain your independence and dignity while providing the support you need to live a fulfilling life. We understand that everyone's needs are different, and that's why we offer a range of services to meet your specific requirements.


Showering, Dressing & Grooming

Our carers are trained and qualified to provide assistance with daily routines, to get you ready for the day or ready for bed. They can help you with showering, dressing, and grooming - including shaving - so you can look and feel your best every day. Look after your health as well with a helping hand for personal hygiene, such as hair washing, nail care, and oral hygiene. Carers can visit every day if you need.

Social, Well-being & Hobby Support

Keeping active and engaged is essential for your health and well-being. That's why we provide support with hobbies, social activities, and other leisure pursuits that you enjoy. Our carers will help you stay connected with family and friends, or find new ways to engage with your community. They can visit you at home to take part in your hobbies, help you to meet with a community group of like minded people, or simply go with you to shop for items that will improve your well-being.

Support with Meal Preparation

Our carers can help with meal preparation, eating, and drinking, ensuring that you get the nourishment you need. If you have dietary requirements they can help you to prepare the best food to keep you strong and healthy. Our carers can work with you to do meal planning for the week ahead, so you know you have tasty and nutritious meals to look forward to. They can also provide support with grocery shopping for the ingredients you will need and cooking up those tasty meals.

Getting out and about is important, and our carers can provide support with shopping and transport. Whether you need a hand with running errands or want to go out for a day trip, our carers will be there to assist you. They can drive you to the doctor's appointment or the dentist, the chemist or the supermarket, and more. While you are out and about our carers can help you to move around safely and purchase all the items you need to buy, then return home in time for dinner.

Bill Payment or Administration Support

Managing your finances can be challenging, but our carers can provide support with bill payments or administration. They can help you keep track of your finances, pay bills, and manage your accounts. Our carers will be professional when helping you with finances and will make sure you understand what your bills are for, where the money is coming from and the balance you will have left once the payment is made.

Relaxation is an important part of looking after your well-being and massage is one of the easiest ways to release any tension or strain you are feeling.
