The participants who need nursing assistance at their residence can now avail the benefit of Community Nursing Care with their NDIS plan. Community nursing care which is funded under the category of Capacity Building Supports, Community Nursing Care provides restorative, disease preventive, and self-care services to the participants in the comfort of their own home.
Community Nursing Care support is available to those who require assistance with: –
Complex Bowel Care
Enteral (Naso-Gastric Tube – Jejunum or Duodenum) Feeding and Management
Urinary Catheter Management (In-dwelling Urinary Catheter, In-out Catheter, Suprapubic Catheter)
Complex Wound Management
Day-to-day management of medications
To administer the above-mentioned complex health services properly, the support staff needs to be medically trained and well-versed in nursing. Since they work closely with the participants and their families the staff needs to be culturally sensitive and willing to work together with the support network of the participant. The purpose of the support is to create a healthy community by implementing various programs related to health education, illness prevention and personal care services.
Community Nursing Care is a support that is yet to be delineated clearly by the NDIS. However, it is included in the NDIS plan after considering the high support needs and circumstances of the participants that require nursing support in their home environment. An individual assessment is made to evaluate whether the inability on the part of the participant to tend to their complex medical needs stems from their disability or an unrelated health condition.
Community Nursing Care is one of the premium quality services Classy Life offers to the participants. We have several trained and experienced supporting staff who are multilingual and cater to your necessities while being mindful of your cultural practices if you have any.
