HOME SUPPORT SERVICES

May Shaw Home Care your provider of choice in the Glamorgan Spring Bay and Dorset municipalities.


Home Care Packages

A Home Care Package gives you more options to live independently at home. It is a personalised, coordinated, ongoing package of support to help you. May Shaw Home Care is proud to say we have been providing Home Care Packages to the members of the Glamorgan Spring Bay Municipality since 1987 and we are excited to extend or services to the members of the Dorset Municipality.

All Home Care Packages are delivered on a Consumer Directed Care (CDC) Basis. The Consumer Directed Care approach puts you – the Consumer – in the director’s chair, if you wish. You will have more opportunity to say how the funds allocated to you in your package are used, so that you can get the things you think will make your life easier. CDC encourages you to share what is important to you and to identify meaningful goals that can help to improve your health and wellbeing, and to keep you connected with family, friends and community.
