COMMUNITY NURSING

Please check with your nearest Simply Helping office if this service is available in your area.

Travelling to medical facilities can be time consuming and uncomfortable. If you need to stay overnight or longer, many facilities struggle to cope with the number of patients compared to the number of beds available. In home community nursing may be the answer. Regardless of your age, there can be many benefits of receiving regular in home nursing care, such as:

  • Enjoying a more restful sleep in your own bed
  • Being familiar with your home environment
  • Feeling more relaxed and comfortable
  • A stronger sense of independence
  • Less time sitting in waiting rooms
  • Greater involvement and control
  • Accommodating visitors easily

Our experienced team will work closely with you, your family and all members of your care team, including GP’s and specialists, to provide the best in home nursing care possible. With considerate care and professional nursing treatment, you won’t need to leave home.

When you are sick, injured, or restricted in some way, the things you took for granted such as having a shower, reaching those cupboards, or getting up the stairs may be challenging. Our community nurses can review your daily activities around the home and make recommendations regarding handrails, lighting, trip hazards, and general accessibility. These improvements will help to make your daily tasks safer and easier.

Whether you require short term, ongoing or 24 hour care, our experienced nurses provide flexible and responsive services, including:

  • Care Planning.
  • General nursing care.
  • Medication Administration.
  • Post hospital care.
  • Treatment of chronic conditions.
  • Making appropriate referrals.
  • Continence Care.
  • Wound management.
  • Health assessments.
  • Personal alarm assessments.
  • Palliative care.
  • Carer support and more.

Most nursing that is carried out in a hospital can be provided in the comfort of your own home. We can also help with prevention of injury and illness, while promoting independence, safety and well-being.
