Mid Care

Mid-Care, or assisted living as it is also known, offers different housing options for seniors who want to live independently, but still require extra help to fully enjoy life.

Different people require different levels of care, from communal housing to socializing to intensive medical intervention. This can easily entail up to 2 hours of nursing care per day. Whether you require a little companionship, assistance with taking your medication properly, or more intensive support, you are sure to find a mid-care option perfect for you!

Disabled Care

We take good care of bed-bound patients and wheelchair patients. We can assist them with movement and speech impairment and daily activities like ablution functions, feeding, dressing and general mobility. Please see bed-bound care for more information. 

Frail Care

Patients who are bed-bound require special care, for when incapacity forces them to bed and limits their activities, their bodies react negatively. These problems include muscles stiffening and contracting, skin breaking down and forming wounds known as bedsores and their lungs getting wetter and less able to breathe effectively. Sometimes small blood clots can form in their blood vessels and cause complications. Even the best mattress in the world becomes an uncomfortable prison if you can never escape from it. 

Among other things, our caregivers change the patient’s position frequently; assist at mealtimes and when taking medication; perform daily skin checks; give bed baths and generally assist with grooming. 

Cancer Care

Cancer is a broad group of various diseases, all involving unregulated cell growth. Hurly Hills offers palliative care for cancer patients. This is an approach to symptom management that aims to reduce the physical, emotional, spiritual, and psycho-social distress experienced by people with cancer. Unlike treatment that is aimed at directly killing cancer cells, the primary goal of palliative care is to make the person feel better. It assists patients to cope with their immediate needs and to increase their comfort. It will also involve their families, so that they are aware of knock-on psychological effects and physical demands that cancer causes to the patient, family and caregivers. 

People whose cancer has produced distressing symptoms, such as pain, shortness of breath, fatigue or nausea, or who need help coping with their illness, will benefit from early palliative care. 

Motor Neuron Disease Patient Care

The motor neuron diseases (MND) are a group of neurological disorders that selectively affect motor neurons. These are the cells that control voluntary muscle activity including speaking, walking, breathing, swallowing and general movement of the body. They are generally progressive in nature, and cause progressive disability and eventually death. This once again impairs mobility, speech and general quality of life and assistance revolves around ablution functions, feeding, dressing, general moving about and is also very intensive. The lack of effective medications to slow the progression of MND does not mean that patients with MND cannot be medically cared for. Instead, treatment of patients with MND focuses on the relief of symptoms associated with the disease. This involves a variety of health professionals including neurologists, speech-language therapists, pathologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, respiratory therapists, social workers, palliative care specialists, specialist nurses and psychologists. 

Tracheostomy Care

A tracheostomy is surgery to make a hole in your neck that goes into your windpipe. This is required when the airway is blocked or a condition exists that makes breathing hard. The procedure is required when a resident is on a ventilator for an extended period of time. After making the hole, a plastic tube is inserted and secured in order to keep it open. To ensure that no infections or complications occur, regular care and observation is required. 

A Hospice Care Program

A Hospice Care Program for End of Life Care is also available for patients too frail to support themselves. Our residents can feel comfortable and accepted in the warm and caring environment we create.
