Degenerative Diseases Care Services
Degenerative Diseases Care Services
Drake Medox has extensive experience in home and community care, providing registered nurses and support workers for families and individuals who require all levels of support at home or in the community. There are several chronic or degenerative conditions that can have a significant effect on a person’s ability to get around and take care of themselves as they progress. Common chronic and degenerative conditions that can lead to disability which we support include:
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Muscular dystrophy
- Huntington’s disease.
- Motor neurone disease (MND)
If you or a loved one has a chronic or degenerative condition, additional care and support at home can make a significant difference in the day of a life. We have experience in managing serious degenerative conditions that require a high level of care and support – from a few days a week, to 24 hours, 7 days a week. Our clients value the homecare support in the safe, familiar and comfortable environment of their home.
Support is delivered by trained and qualified carers, experienced in the medical requirements of degenerative diseases, who understand the highly complex and intensive levels of care which can be required.
One of Drake Medox’s strengths of our in-home support services is our ability to find, select and match the right staff to the people we support. It is important for our carers to not only have the essential qualifications and professional skills but also the personal attributes to work harmoniously with you or your loved one. We offer a wide range of services from clinical support and personal care through to companionship and light housekeeping duties, and all our staff understand the importance of providing a safe and respectful level of care each day.

What Do Our Clients Say?
“I would like to thank you for the very high standard of support that continues to be and has been provided to my daughter over the past four years. My daughter is 22 years old, her disabilities (including Global Learning Delay and severe Verbal Dyspraxia) affect her ability to communicate. Drake Medox's provision of support workers for community access on a weekly basis has helped to improve her quality of life and continued growth beyond the home environment.
Stability and flexibility of staff in relation to her care have fulfilled an important role and contributed positively to the whole family. We feel very lucky to know our loved one is in trusted care.”

“I have 24/7 support workers and they're all great. I'm there to get more independence and doing lots of cooking and cleaning. They're really good. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The routine is good, I get to know who is coming in next.” - Client - Barney
“I have worked with Drake Medox Canberra as a disability support worker for roughly over 6 months now. Working at Drake is a relaxed environment and you are supported by the management 24/7 if you need help, have any questions or queries. The management/staff are approachable and very supportive. They have flexible working hours which works out great for me as a mum who has to juggle both work and family! They also try and match me with clients that they know I will get on well with. The weekly pay is a bonus. I would highly recommend working for Drake Medox!”
