Community Nursing Care

Depending on the kind of disability, participants require various kinds of medical care and attention. The community nursing care program by Sensible Care prescribes the need for participants to become independent when it comes to their health, as a major part of the program. Through the community nursing care program, participants are trained on how to take care of their health in scenarios such as medication, wound care, hygiene, and help with showering or dressing. There is usually a registered nurse or medical practitioner appointed who will monitor the patient’s progress and will amend the treatment and medication accordingly. Here are some of the services offered under the community nursing care program:

  • Visiting nurse and assessment
  • Developing treatment plans
  • Case management
  • Setting up medication
  • Medication administration/supervision
  • Wound care
  • Stoma care
  • Respiratory support
  • Continence advice and management
  • Palliative support
  • Diabetes management
  • Dementia management
  • Hospital stay after-care
  • Overnight nursing care
  • Monitoring of vitals
  • Education for participants and their families

At Sensible Care, we have certified and experienced medical professionals who can render community nursing care under the NDIS program. We provide an obligation-free consultation in the comfort of your own home, with the purpose of listening and understanding your needs.

With us, each participant that has community nursing care in their NDIS support plan is allocated a medical staff member who will keep in touch to discuss, monitor, and provide feedback on the participant’s medication, treatments, and progress. Besides this, our medical staff members offer advice on how to engage in basic self-care and nursing wherein one will become capable of doing simple things like wound care or first aid on their own.
