According to AFME resident Rosa Palmer and her family, receiving services from RAAFA Connect not only enables her to remain living independently in her Mirage Terraces apartment, she also benefits from social connection and friendship seven days a week.
"I receive support every day, morning and night, and due to my family going on holiday, I’m about to start receiving services at lunchtime,” says Rosa, who has received in-home services for over six years to enable her to remain living happily in her own apartment.
“The girls who come in to see me are lovely and their support is just what I need.”
And according to Rosa’s daughter Pamela, who still pops in to see her mum most days, RAAFA Connect’s services offer the entire family peace of mind.
“It works so well because it means mum sees someone at the start and at the end of every day, which is very comforting to her and, in fact, all of us,” she said.
“She gains support with meal preparation and doing the dishes, and the girls will have a cup of tea with her and provide some social interaction.
“They’ll also help her with things like her asthma inhaler; the support they provide is invaluable and the friendship that the girls provide is just priceless.
RAAFA Connect can help with personal care services and support around the home, in addition to assistance to get out and about, including shopping, going to appointments and social activities. Health support is also available, with things like getting to nursing appointments, physiotherapy and health reviews.
