‘I chose Resthaven because I can have flexibility in my life’, says Mrs Cesira Di Pardo.
Mrs Di Pardo enjoys a life full of choices, thanks to her Home Care Package with Resthaven Western Community Services.
Cesira remembers choosing Resthaven when she was looking for extra help to stay living in her home and she has been enjoying her lifestyle ever since.
‘I chose Resthaven because the team work with me to enable me to have flexibility in how I use my package to improve my life. I can go to my social group on Wednesdays. They pick me up and drop me off home when I am ready. I also come to the groups at Woodville on Monday and Thursday mornings, which I really enjoy.’
‘I don’t have to wait for my daughter every time I want to leave the house. If I want to go to the shops, I can get there with my Home Support Worker, through my package services.’
While Cesira enjoys the flexibility and regular outings that her package of services provides for her, there is another reason why she recommends looking into a Home Care Package with Resthaven.
‘My Home Support Worker, Angela, is very special to me. We enjoy each other’s company very much when she comes around to help me with the cooking and the cleaning’.
‘In my experience, it is so important to find a Home Support Worker who will treat me like a person and who cares about me and how I live my day’.
‘Angela will always go above and beyond to make sure I am happy and getting the best out of my package.’
‘She is great!’
Franco Parenti, Manager of Resthaven Western Community Services, says ‘At Resthaven, we live our values of trust, dignity and choice every day. We aim to assist older people in continuing to live independently by supporting them with a little extra help, personally tailored like Cesira’s Home Care Package.’
‘Our team is a very multicultural group and we are able to support people from many diverse cultural backgrounds.’
