Hovi Care’s Home Care
Hovi Care’s Home Care is a natural extension of our care at the centre. The only difference is the location of care. However, Home Care means providing care to individual needs. Hence, we will need more time to prepare and ensure we have enough activities for the clients. Sometimes, we may need to bring the games and equipment like puzzles, cards and Nordic sticks from the centre to their homes.
Physical, social and memory rehabilitation
Like in the centre, we continue to provide holistic care to the clients – physical, social and memory rehabilitation. We will find creative ways to conduct those activities at clients’ homes. Often, we are challenged with space constraint and structural constraints like pillars and stairs. We overcome such constraints by taking the clients out for a stroll outside and have some fresh air. Such walking trails are also valuable time for us to socialise with the clients through small talks. At the same time, we take such opportunity to teach them to wear masks – which has become the new normal and an essential “survival” skill.
The Home Care also brings us closer to the clients’ families. Some activities we could involve them as they are working from home during this COVID-19 period. We could interact more with the family members and learn more about the clients. Such frequent interactions bring us closer and build trust. Now, we could embrace the clients and their families and make them part of the Hovi Club family!
