The home based nursing team provides a range of nursing services to people of all ages living in the community.

Our nursing team can assist you with issues such as:

  • Wound care
  • Physical limitations affecting your ability to take care of yourself
  • Increasing difficulty with managing day to day tasks
  • Incontinence
  • Medication management
  • Managing chronic health conditions
  • Health care needs after hospitalisation
  • Transport to specialist appointments for those with physical limitation
  • Cancer related care needs
  • Life limiting illness
  • Navigating the health system, including referrals and advocacy

Our nurses will conduct a comprehensive assessment, generally in your home, and will work with you to meet your needs in the best way for you. The team can also conduct community group education sessions on a range of health related topics on request. NB GLCH delivers this service to residents of a catchment area roughly contained by the Tambo River to the west, the Bruthen-Buchan Road to the north and Hospital Creek to the east. If you live outside this area your care will be provided by another service provider.
