Home & Community Care Services

 

Our in-home and community-based services support the efforts of individuals to care for themselves with the assistance of family, friends and community. Care management ensures our services meet distinct needs of the client.

 

Care Management

Care Managers visit clients at home to provide clinical assessments that determine which services accommodate each client's unique needs. In-home professional care services include:

* Nursing (acute and chronic care)
* Physiotherapy
* Occupational Therapy
* Social Work
* Speech and language pathology
* Nutritional and dietary
* School Health Support

Home and Community Health Care staff work in partnership with other health care professionals and organizations in the community and region to help our clients achieve and maintain good health. Some of our service partners include the Victorian Order of Nurses, Partners in Rehab, Bayshore Home Health, and Comcare Health Services.
