We can help with bathing and showering, washing and drying your hair, applying make-up and shaving.

Our caregivers can also offer assistance with dressing and undressing, getting in and out of bed, and continence management, with sensitivity and care.

Housekeeping and Domestic Assistance

If housework is becoming a burden, domestic home care services can help lighten the load, saving you from the heavy lifting, bending and stooping.

Mayflower’s care workers can take on light or heavy housekeeping chores, from making the beds, doing the laundry, dusting and vacuuming to light gardening and basic property upkeep.

Meals and Nutrition

We believe good food is key to a happy and healthy life.

With the help of a dietician, your home care services can take the guesswork out of nutrition – ensuring your plate is filled with wholesome and delicious meals.

We can also bring dinner to your door, assist with safe and healthy meal preparation, and even help with kitchen cleanup and doing the dishes.

Sometimes a cuppa and chat with a friendly face is all you need to make your day.

Our home care services can help give you social support, which can include scheduling in-home visits with family and friends or getting you set up and familiar with technology that lets you stay in touch with loved ones online.

Our friendly caregivers also love to chat and are often partial to a cuppa, and a biscuit or two. If you would like some company on a stroll or for a trip to the local café, or even to stay in and have a chat – we are here for you.
