Companionship - Simply Helping companions invest time and effort in developing professional friendships. Carers remain sensitive to client dignity and needs, whether pure companionship or more active care is involved.

Cleaning your home

Our Cleaning (both domestic and commercial) and Home Help Register comprises 'Home Helpers' that are fully experienced, reliable, flexible and competent at what they do.

As part of this process, all Home Helpers are fully insured, police checked and thoroughly reference checked for everyone's peace of mind. We can help you with a range of services from general home help, ironing and housekeeping through to a spring clean. Our Home Helpers can work from a minimum of 2 hours up to as many as you feel is needed for the jobs that you want done, and can be on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis or as a 'one off '....... we try to be flexible.

Home Helpers are given a 'Home Help Checklist' which includes the basic jobs that are to be done on a visit, as well as other jobs that can be done on a less regular basis. For all our private clients, it is important to note that we are only responsible for the selection and referral of people to our private clients to work in the cleaning and home help area.

The arrangement/contract is between the client and the Home Helper. We accept no responsibility for any loss, expense, delay or damage that may result from a breach of the arrangements by the Home Helper. In the unlikely event that we are unable to place a suitable Home Helper with you from our Register, we will advertise for a suitable person for you.

We wish to make the whole process of providing you with help as simple as possible.Vacuuming the carpet

Taking a client for a gentle view

Simply Helping assists many clients and their families living with a disability. We endeavour through our well trained and empathetic staff to provide a flexible level of care and support to assist in maintaining independence and a healthy lifestyle.

Intrinsic in this is the respect and value we place on the lives and independence of our clients. We work with clients with a range of disabilities from those living with dementia, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder, developmental delay, acquired brain injury, to clients living with a physical disability.

Simply Helping receives requests for assistance from both private clients and brokerage clients such as healthcare groups and not-for-profit groups receiving government funds to provide services.

Simply Helping is a member of NDIS. When the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) becomes fully operational, we see this as developing into a growth area as this will open up choice for clients and families to select the organisation they feel more comfortable working with.

Currently, Simply Helping is assisting such clients in the Geelong and Barwon region where one of the five pilots is occurring.

Baby-sitting

Simply Helping understands that selecting someone else to care for your child can be difficult, especially if the child is ill. Our professional approach ensures we introduce families to trustworthy and reliable Carers. We work hard to ensure sitters and nannies meet your needs and complement your family.

Our extensive Register includes qualified and mature child Carers. All have been comprehensively checked, including police, written and verbal references.

All have a Working with Children Certificate and most have gained Nanny or Childcare Certificates through a recognised course of study. Mature Carers have many years experience caring for other families.

Sitters - Our quality Carers are available day or night, all year around. Please provide advance notice with your booking, so we can place a sitter who fits your needs as closely as possible. The Simply Helping sitter will contact you before the assignment and confirm arrangements directly. Should you prefer to meet ahead of time, this can usually be arranged. Single, casual and regular assignments are welcome. You might also consider the many benefits of a Simply Helping nanny.

Nannies - Using a nanny means you'll never worry about getting to and from crèche or what happens if illness strikes. You can relax knowing someone dependable is with your child. Plus, children cared for at home receive more direct care and attention. The many duties performed by nannies include:

  • play,reading,supervising television,bathing and dressing,preparing light meals, and
  • homework and after school activity help.

Simply Helping can introduce your family to a casual, part-time or permanent nanny. We carefully select candidates for both live-in and live-out positions.

In addition to our current suite of services, we are very excited to announce the provision of a new service established to assist those needing counselling and/or psychological services. This has been made possible through our recently formed association with Victorian Counselling & Psychological Services (VCPS).

Although this service is only available to Melbourne-based clientele, it will be expanded to regional Victoria over time.

This service will allow the client to visit one of six office locations across Melbourne to attend psychological, psychiatric and mental health services. Clients will also have telephone support services available to them.

Referrals can be made via medical practitioners following the preparation of a Mental Health Plan, or requests for this service can be made directly to Simply Helping, at which point a process is entered into to facilitate this requirement.

All these services are provided by registered professionals in their field, and maintain professional indemnity insurance and practices in accordance with relevant Psychology Codes in Australia.

We view this new service as a valuable complementary addition to our existing suite of services for our clients.
