Our team of registered health professionals and trained support workers will work partnership with you and your family to provide a flexible service that is tailored to your needs and promotes rehabilitation enabling you to return to as much independence as possible.
Depending on your injury we will agree how long and how frequently you need our support. Some of this will be determined by your ACC case manager.
We appreciate that the first assessment or meeting with one of our registered health professionals can occur during a difficult or stressful time for you and your family. You will have questions to ask and important decisions to make, and it is our responsibility to ensure you are provided with all the information you need.
Some of the services you may need include but are not limited to:
- Assistance with bathing, dressing and grooming
- Assistance with housework
- Assistance with shopping and or meal preparation
- Accessing community activities
- Child care
Some people also need support with bowel and catheter care which can be provided either by one of our trained support workers or a registered nurse.
Our nurses will provide clinical oversight, assess any risks and you may also need treatment such as wound care. You may also need assessment or support by an occupational therapist or physiotherapist.
