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 to decide what services are required to maintain a client’s independence and ensure they are able to continue to live at home with the help needed.
Care Planning, Case Management and Community Resource Coordination
Once an assessment has been completed by your case manager will develop a care plan for the client and when required their family. This will detail the services that have been identified and the days and times that are preferred. We will then arrange these services, which may include personal care, cleaning or gardening services, meal provision, or medication administration. Your case manager is the key liaison point ensuring continuity of care and familiarity for our clients and their families ensuring personalised, consistent management of the care plan. The plan will be reviewed every 6 months or as needs change.
