Our Registered Nurses can undertake a health assessment to help determine your care needs. This can be done as part of a Government funded package or privately. Once completed, the health assessment can be used to help you to decide what services you may need to maintain your independence and ensure that you can continue to live at home with the help you need.
Care Planning, Case Management and Community Resource Coordination
Once an assessment has been completed, a Registered Nurse will develop a care plan for you in conjunction with you and your family. This will detail the services that you have identified and the days and times that you prefer. We will then arrange these services, which may include personal care, cleaning or gardening services, meal provision, or medication administration. The Registered Nurse is your key liaison point ensuring continuity of care and familiarity for you and your family, and ensures personalized management of your care plan. Your plan will be reviewed every 6 months or as your needs change.
