Leaving Hospital after treatment is a daunting experience. You may be unsure what help you actually need and whether you need a nurse or a carer. We can help you decide on the best support for you or your loved one.
Our private nurses and carers have been caring for vulnerable clients in their own homes for over 20 years, so we really have the experience to know what is likely to work for you. Our clinically led private care at home services are specifically tailored to our clients’ specific needs, and our nurses and carers are personally vetted by our Director of Homecare Services and Registered Nurse, Michele Jogee.
This is an example below of what our post-discharge care service may include…
- Rapid response general surgical (including wound dressing)
- Post-stroke rehabilitation
- Post-orthopaedic surgery care and rehabilitation e.g., hip replacements
- Motor Neurone Disease management. Our staff receive personalised in-hospital training on nebuliser equipment and procedures, e.g., Cough Assist Training on nebuliser for staff Cough Assist for continuation of care at home.
- Diabetes management. In liaison with GPs and the District Nursing Service we support clients living with both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes who are Insulin-dependent. We provide in-hospital training for our carers in the management of hyper and hypo episodes and, as such, have documented clear protocols for them to follow in the event of incident.
- Chemotherapy. Diligent nursing service including closely monitoring clients with a cancer- related condition for signs.
When it works well, this is how our clients describe our involvement in post discharge care. We are passionate about care and simply strive every day to deliver quality care. You can of course call us should you need any further information or clarification regarding our care and nursing services.
HP provided a team of carers for my mother during her final illness. Mum had complex health needs including diabetes requiring insulin, valvular heart disease which became increasingly unstable, and old pelvic injury which caused limitations in mobility.
There were also some challenging social issues which Michele dealt with sensitively. All staff were well briefed and well trained. The Carers were extremely punctual and reliable in their attendance.
When my Mum was admitted to hospital HP staff kept in touch and there was never a problem keeping the team of Carers on standby for discharge.RELATIVE OF A FORMER HP HOMECARE CLIENT
