Nurses, doctors, emergency personnel, policemen, firemen and any of the other professions that deal with some of the greatest pressures involved in saving lives and being exposed to the darker side of life, especially in law enforcement and in the medical field, are people who are born to these callings, calls that most of us, if we are honest about it, would be too terrified to contemplate!

It is much the same where it comes to the extra special human beings who choose to serve others with absolute compassion, patience, understanding and respect, all of which is backed up by the type of high quality training and experience that makes them truly exceptional when it comes to caring for those who are no longer able to care for themselves.

These are the calibre of people who make up the team of home caregivers, companions, registered nurses and sisters brought together by the management team at CareChamp, committed to raising the bar where it comes to home nursing services in South Africa.

CareChamp offers affordable, flexible solutions that make home care services accessible to a broad range of families and individuals who need a helping hand in taking care of elderly frail or disabled loved ones at home, rather than in frail care facilities.

Offering a high level of trusted care for elderly frail or disabled clients is just one part of the comprehensive range of services offered by the experienced team at CareChamp, they have done as much as possible to assist in as many ways as they are able to lend a helping hand.

These home services include dementia care, hospital to home care as well as post-operative care, wound management, which is carried out by a CareChamp registered sister, childcare and companions who are committed to bringing a ray of sunshine into the lives of elderly people feeling the effects of isolation that comes with the loss of independence as they age.

CareChamp certified caregivers are able to carry out all non-medical services and to assist in making sure that the health and safety of all clients is a priority in the home, keeping critical areas affecting the health of the client clean, as well as doing all that is possible to prevent accidents - the CareChamp caregiver assigned to your loved one is also able to carry out light housekeeping in order to ensure that hygiene is maintained at a high standard, especially where it can have a negative impact on the health and well-being of each client in their care.

Registered nurses often work in conjunction with caregivers where it comes to carrying out medical services such as wound care, adjusting the care plan should circumstances change, as well as assisting with the management of medication.  Of course, a CareChamp caregiver is able to assist with medication reminders as part of their duties, which also include bathroom and grooming assistance – and more!

Everything that is done by the management team at CareChamp, along with their support staff, is designed to make life as easy as possible for you, your family and your loved one in every way, from the care your loved one receives right through to taking all the administrative stress right off your shoulders, keeping everything organised so that all you have to do is take a deep breath and know that your loved one is safe and in good hands!
