Home Nursing at Home Carers Direct
If the health issues you are concerned about require a carer with a higher level of training, home nursing care may be what you need.
A nurse can help you in various ways in your own home environment, for example, you may need catheter care, respiratory care or wound care or help to recover after a stay in hospital or surgical procedure.
With Home Carers Direct, the number, duration and frequency of home care visits is flexible. Be sure to discuss this with your chosen carer.
Keep in mind that you can always build a team of carers across more than one of the care types (domestic & social; personal; nursing). For example, depending on your health issues, it may be appropriate for you to combine home nursing with personal care and this could address multiple care concerns and save in care costs. Be mindful though that home nursing services can be performed only by a registered or enrolled nurse and that medication management can be performed only by a registered or endorsed enrolled nurse.
With Home Carers Direct, you can choose the right registered or enrolled nurse for you and book directly. All carers offering nursing care are registered with AHPRA and have 12 months or more relevant work experience. They have passed national police record and referee checks, have had their qualifications verified and are insured.
