Medical conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and cataracts can decrease hand dexterity and eye-sight, which leads to increasing difficulty with maintaining adequate personal hygiene.

We pay attention to all our patient’s specific needs and believe that caring for the carers is equally important.

Complex medical conditions
(eg. Cancer, Stroke, Transplant, Bleeding disorders, Congenital disorders)
Cognitive decline
