NDNS can provide home nursing and community care services. This service is totally flexible to meet your needs and preferences.
Who is eligible and how can I refer?
Anyone may request private services, all of which are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Even if you have access to one of the government-funded programs, you may wish to obtain additional services or more frequent assistance.
Referrals may be made from any source (i.e. self referral, family members, carers, ACAT, General Practitioner, Hospital Discharge Planner and other care agencies).
NDNS will discuss with the potential client / family the schedule of fees and arrange a convenient time to complete an assessment. Following the assessment a care plan will be developed to meet your individual care needs. Care plans are developed with consideration for a client’s specific language, cultural and religious requirements.
What level of assistance is available?
The hours per week and frequency of visitations offered is based on your individual needs and preferences.
Is there a cost?
Private Nursing is not subsided by government funding.
You will be advised before the agreed service plan is implemented of the associated cost. This will be clearly detailed in a Service Agreement.
