1. The challenge:
John thinks of himself as quite a handyman.
Until recently, he continued to climb a ladder to check the roof tiles and prune the vines.
He is nearly 70, and his wife feels climbing a ladder is risky at his age.
2. Solution without a Care Manager:
John fears losing his independence and may choose to ignore the danger related to using a ladder. Without the knowledge of the support available from a Care Manager, he may also experience a preventable accident.
3. The Care Manager difference:
“Mary explains that it is never too early to ask for help around the home, especially with high-risk jobs on a ladder.”
John realises that as he ages, his sense of balance decreases, therefore increasing the risk involved with specific tasks around the house.
Mary suggests tailoring his Home Care Package with Home Maintenance to support the goal of living safely at home.
John appreciates that his Home Care Package is personalised to support his independence and safety.
He now enjoys focusing his attention on ground-level jobs, leaving higher-risk jobs to professionals.
