Community Care services focus on enabling, empowering and promoting independence so people can remain active members of their community for as long as possible.
Packages can include domestic personal assistance and case management, respite care, assistive equipment, home modification to enable independence as well as a range of other smaller programs focused on local community needs.
The in home nursing service aims to contribute to improved quality of life & personal empowerment, maximising opportunities for positive experiences by providing clients and their families access to a range of services which reflect their individual needs and circumstances. This is also echoed through the ensuring of flexibility in service provisions, which will continue to meet the changing needs of the client, particularly in times of emergency. Nursing services include attending complex personal support needs, for example, wound care, diabetic care, medication administration, hand and foot care.
The types of services available include private clients, the Department of Veterans Affairs' (DVA) clients and Veterans' Home Care (VHC) clients to assist veterans and warwidows/widowers, to maintain optimal health, wellbeing and independence. As part of the program, you are encouraged to keep active and maintain social support networks with those who are impotant to you. The program provides a range of services to meet your needs including domestic assistance, personal care and respite care.
