As one of the most highly rated and trusted caregivers and home based nursing agency in Cape Town, CareChamp has created and tailored home based services that are designed to make it easier for elderly frail and disabled people to stay in their own homes, if possible, or to live with their families.
Your aging parent may be struggling with degenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s as well as recovery from operations that require a long period of home care, or perhaps having to deal with the loss of extremities through amputation.
Aging brings with it a completely new way of having to live for an aging parent, especially if they’re in relatively good health. If there are major health issues such as illness or frailty life becomes even more restricted.
CareChamp was started through the passionate commitment of a management team that fully recognised that it could improve the quality of life for elderly frail people to remain in their own home.
If you’ve made the decision to care for your elderly parent at home, you’ll be doing a crash course in survival, especially in terms of maintaining your own emotional and psychological balance under very challenging circumstances.
Bringing caregivers into the lives of disabled or frail care patients is not easy when clients try to do it themselves, which is why CareChamp has developed an innovative system that takes all the hassle out of hiring a caregiver with all the right credentials.
If you have chosen to care for an elderly frail or disabled parent at home, home, there will be a great deal of stress to face, on an emotional and psychological level, which can be relieved by engaging a caregiver on a full-time or part-time basis.

There are certainly many reasons that the aged are forced, through circumstances, to live in aged care or frail care homes, but what happens to them, both physically and psychologically, is very different to what would happen if they were cared for by family at home.
It’s an inescapable fact that as we age, many of the activities in and outside of the home become more than just challenging, they become a battle for retaining any independence, no matter how hard it may be.
Isolation is the enemy that creeps in to the lives of the elderly very stealthily, so quietly in fact, that as the small things that speak of self-reliance and independence start slipping away, the decline cannot be ignored.
Words and expressions such as safety, security, trust, high level of qualification and experience, confidentiality and exceptional care, are what have made CareChamp the leading caregivers and home based nursing agency in Cape Town.
Remaining at home or with the family for anyone who’s elderly, frail or disabled is always first prize. As everyday tasks become more of a challenge or no longer possible to manage alone, it’s easy to start feeling isolated.
Many South African families are at a loss when it comes to taking an elderly, frail or disabled parent into their home, while at the same time managing their role as breadwinners.

CareChamp offers the highest standard in home care for elder and disabled people, making it easier for them to stay in the comfort and security of their own homes.

Being the caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s at home is not easy, on many levels, physically and emotionally. This counts for both the person living with Alzheimer’s and the caregiver.
As we age, we all start getting a bit forgetful, it’s just one of those things. You might forget the date for a while but then remember later, or sometimes get a bit lost for words that are familiar, only to recapture them later in a conversation.
For many families deciding to look after a loved one at home, choosing the right home care, either on a part-time or permanent basis, is an important decision.
