Absolute Home Care was established in 1994 by Registered nurse Helen Armstrong.
At a time when traditional aged-care facilities were the norm, Helen saw there was a strong desire for people to live as independently as possible within their own homes, and for as long as they could. To have care delivered on their terms.
Helen believes every individual deserves the same basic rights no matter what their age. It was on this premise that Absolute Home Care was established, and the results have been extremely gratifying.
Supporting the elderly and disabled in the comfort of their own homes has proved rewarding for the client, the family, as well as for our nurses and support workers.
Absolute Home Care now has over 70 qualified and experienced field staff that bring a wealth of knowledge to those we care for. This expertise means we are able to deal sensitively with a wide variety of client needs and expectations, and individually tailor care.
Providing care for Department of Veterans Affairs clients is a large part of our business, along with personal and respite care services for many private and government-funded clients referred to us by a range of agencies working in the sector.
Registered nurse Helen Armstrong is the owner and director of Absolute Home Care.
Under her stewardship, the company has expanded over the years to meet the ever-increasing demand for home-based care and support services, and now boasts a staff of over 70, which includes registered and enrolled nurses as well as qualified carers.
Over her 40-year career as a registered nurse, Helen has developed a broad range of nursing skills, particularly around community-based nursing that helps elderly clients remain in their home, and ensures a safe and supportive home environment for people living with dementia.
For Helen, it’s all about making sure clients and their families trust Absolute Home Care staff to come into their homes, know that the medical and personal care offered is second to none, and feel confident that we will always listen and respond to any feedback about the care provided.
In this way, she and her team help their clients enjoy as much independence as they can and live a better life.
