Focus Home Care expanding services in Newcastle and the Hunter

Focus Home Care is a privately held Australian company that provides aged and dementia care. With a home base in Sydney, the decision to expand into the Hunter, Newcastle and Central Coast regions was a carefully considered move.

“As an aged care, dementia care and now disability support provider that prides itself on trust and reliability, this is an important step for us. We needed to be sure that we would be able to provide comprehensive care across the region,” says Focus Home Care CEO Christina Harlamb.

“I am especially pleased to be able to make Focus Home Care’s innovative dementia care services, based on Montessori methods, available to thousands of families across the Hunter. We are working with every client’s strengths, to create an environment that promotes independence and the best possible quality of life for people living with dementia. Our staff are specially trained to deliver Montessori based care,” she adds.

Focus Home Care Newcastle-based care worker Pauline says she feels privileged to be able to support older people stay independent on a daily basis.

“If you’d asked me what I’d like to be doing as a job it’s exactly what I’m doing now – that’s the truth. There’s nothing I enjoy more than caring for older people and being part of this great Focus Home Care team. The team we have and the philosophy of caring for everyone, based on who the person is as an individual, is something I love being a part of,” she says.
