Community Nursing Care

Compassionate, friendly, and professional support by Registered and trained nurses.

Our team of Registered Nurses are qualified and experienced and available to support you when you need the care.

We at ELS aim to provide professional and friendly nursing care to ndis participants and those who are elderly living in their own homes and prefer to pay privately having no or limited funding for care services.

 

We are ndis registered provider for nursing and home care services.

At ELS we believe that there is no other place like home, so our flexible in-home nursing support services are designed to keep you in the comfort of your own home, whilst receiving the nursing care you need.

We aim to provide holistic care where our clients feel well-supported by a friendly and supportive care team.  

ELS team of nurse practitioners specialize in community nursing and can provide clinical in-home support.

Whether you require ongoing clinical support or a one-off visit, ELS can organize a community nurse to attend to you in your home. Our trained Registered Nurse can provide you the support for medical needs such as wound care, IV therapy, ostomy care, and other services that require clinical skills.

What is private nursing care at home?

Private Nursing Care at home provides skilled, specialized healthcare in your own home. The home care services can be for the short-term to support you or your loved ones with postoperative wound care or it could be for the long-term management of medications and chronic conditions.

 

Unlike inpatient nursing, which may require hospital stays, or traditional outpatient care, requiring a visit to clinicians, home care services bring the desired level of healthcare support directly to you.

Very simply, private nursing care at home at home is either to administer urgent short-term treatment or to have an ongoing role in overseeing chronic clinical care needs. A Private Nurse makes an important addition to your or your loved one’s Caregiving Team, as it can give the needed peace of mind of receiving the best possible private home care.

Thus, by preventing the need to travel to a doctor’s office or a hospital, Caregivers and nurses working together can lead to fewer hospitalizations. This also helps reduce the risk of exposure to major infections and the subsequent development of life-threatening illnesses. This may also reduce the premature need for an expensive nursing home placement.

 

We can also provide on-call nursing support when required.

As a registered NDIS provider offering personal care and self-care support services to ndis participants, we often find that when people request in-home nursing care, our highly experienced and professional Caregivers can perform most of the necessary duties, while a Registered Nurse can then assist with complex clinical tasks as required. This team-based approach delivers the most holistic and cost-effective care.

Our registered nurses can collaborate with you, your GP, allied health professionals and your loved ones to draw up an individualized care/service plan. By forming an effective support plan, we ensure that it meets your needs and goals adequately. We ensure that the clinical staff we send to you are registered nurses and are friendly, highly professional, experienced, reliable, attentive, and compassionate so that you feel well supported.

 

Our in-home clinical nursing services include:

  • Assessments

  • Medication Management

  • Wound Care

  • Catheter Care

  • Continence

  • Intravenous Therapy

  • Enteral Feeding

What is the Difference Between Personal Care or Self Care and Nursing Care?

Personal care or Self-care includes personalized support that helps you accomplish daily activities such as eating, grooming, and toileting. This support is provided by an experienced carer who is trained through a certification program.

 

While Nursing Care, on the other hand, is provided by a university-graduated and trained Registered Nurse, who can work with you or your loved one’s team to provide skilled nursing care. Our Community Nursing service could include assessing needs, planning treatment, administering medication, and other medical services as required.
