CareChoice creates bespoke nursing programs to support NDIS participants with complex medical requirements in their home environment. We work collaboratively with allied health teams to set up a program that will support these participants for long-term success. We recruit a team of enrolled nurses (ENs) with experience in the participant’s specific medical condition/s. These nurses work alongside a team of support workers to meet the client’s daily support needs. We provide skilled and timely care to our clients while promoting their independence and involvement in care decision making. A registered nurse (RN) provides oversight for every day and is contactable after hours to support the team in delivering positive health outcomes.
When our clients (many of whom are non verbal) require a visit to hospital, our staff escort them to provide reassurance and to advocate on their behalf. We have achieved great success in the first year of the program, with no clients requiring long-term readmission. We’re keen to assist more people who require higher level care to move out of the hospital environment and start living a more independent life with reliable nursing and disability supports. We are able to support clients with multiple and complex needs such as:
- Diabetes Type 1
- Intellectual disability
- Younger onset Alzheimer’s disease
- Complex seizure management
- Motor neurone disease
“Thanks to the nursing support provided by CareChoice for my client, his quality of life has vastly improved. The coordination of all allied health professionals in supporting the client to reach or progress through his NDIS goals has been remarkable to say the least. My client’s EN and RN teamwork is unparalleled in my experience … The CareChoice approach for managing the health services and disability support needs has enabled my client to improve his quality of life (and) live well beyond his life expectancy. The support … is personalised, expert and flexible. Nursing procedures and professional practice and expert advice is sought after, provided and shared with the full circle of support including family members and key client representatives. I am very grateful to have linked with CareChoice’s nursing support service. The entire team is one I can trust and count on.”
