Feros Care’s spring to-do list

As the days get longer and the weather warmer, it’s a great time to give your home a spring clean, your garden a spruce-up and welcome the new season with social trips, companionship or a spot of shopping!

If you have a government-funded Home Care Package, there are plenty of services available to help you get things in order so you can make the most of everything spring has to offer. (Feros Care can also provide these as
privately-paid services).

Spring cleaning – deep clean and de-clutter your home

While you may already get regular help with housework such as cleaning and laundry, spring is the perfect time to do a deep clean of your home, including fans, air conditioning units, skirting boards and gutters.

This can be especially helpful if you’re predisposed to hay fever, which can flare up this time of year.

It’s also a great time to clear out anything you no longer need or use, freeing up space in your home. We can help with de-cluttering, garbage disposal and re-arranging or redecorating – including printing and framing photographs.

Put winter away

While those flannelette sheets and heavy blankets have been well-used over the winter months, it’s time to welcome crisp sheets and light quilts!

Feros Care can organise for all your winter woolies to be washed and stored. We can even go shopping for vacuum-sealed bags to protect your winter clothes and linen, while minimizing size to save cupboard space.

Get out in the garden

With bees buzzing and buds blooming, spring is the season to soak up some time in the garden.

Whether you’re a green thumb who loves to get their hands dirty, or an admirer who prefers to sit and enjoy, Feros Care can support you in all your gardening endeavours.

Be it a vast vegetable patch in your yard or a small rose garden on your balcony, we can assist with everything from yard maintenance, hedging and lawn mowing, to planting, watering, picking and

Stepping out

Sunny days and warmer weather is an enticing combination and some people like to spend more time outside the house.

If you’d like to head out for a spot of shopping, lunch at a café or visit family or friends, Feros Care’s transport service makes traveling easy. Or for those
looking for something more social, we can accompany you on outings of your choice.

Feel like being social but prefer to do it from home? Or perhaps you are affected by a COVID lockdown and can’t get out and about as much as you’d like. Feros Care’s
Virtual Social Centre gives you the chance to connect with like-minded people from across Australia at a time and place convenient to you. From cooking classes and language courses, to art exhibitions and craft meet-ups, there’s something for everyone. Talk to us about joining.
