Winter is hanging on and we encourage all our customers and staff to follow some simple tips to help keep yourselves and others safe on the roads this wet season.

HenderCare recognises our responsibility to provide reliable, high quality service to our clients. 

Diabetes Australia describes diabetes as a “serious complex condition which can affect the entire body. Diabetes requires daily self care and if complications develop, diabetes can have a significant impact on quality of life and can reduce life expectancy.” It has been shown that while there is no known cure it is possible to manage the condition.

First aid is a crucial skill for anyone who works in the aged care and disability sectors. All of our direct care staff have Provide First Aid (HLTAID003 or HLTAID004) certification. At HenderCare we regularly offer in-house first aid training including CPR.

We’re pleased to introduce you to the two newest members of the HenderCare team; Joanne Money, our inaugural State Manager NSW & ACT, and Mandy De Cesare, our new National Disability Client Services Manager.

If you've ever called HenderCare in Western Australia, there's a very good chance you've spoken with Brooklyn. We thought we'd take the opportunity to introduce her to you properly! We sat down with Brooklyn and asked her to tell us a bit more about herself.

In 2004, we opened our doors in Adelaide. In the fourteen years that have passed, our team has grown across South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia, Queensland, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory. We’re taking a moment to celebrate our fourteenth birthday and acknowledge our team and the consumers, participants and referring organisations who we serve.

The Bureau of Metereology has forecast extremely hot weather in South Australia and Victoria over the next few days. We're taking this opportunity to remind you to look after yourself, and others around you as the temperature is expected to reach 41 degrees Celsius on Thursday.

The Museum of Love is a project launched on Valentine's Day in 2017 by Celebrate Ageing. It's designed to document the importance and presence of love in the lives of people with dementia. Yesterday, the Museum of Love launched its new website.

What a year it's been! As we reflect on the year that has passed, and look ahead to the year to come, we're grateful for the relationships we have with referring organisations, staff, friends, family, participants and consumers across Australia.
