Post hospital support

Post hospital support, often referred to as ‘post discharge home care’ or ‘transition care’ is the nursing and support given after a hospital stay while in the comfort of your own home. The goal is to actively help nurse you back to better health and assist with regaining independence and confidence as soon as possible.

What transition care and post hospital support can DANS assist with?

We offer both short-term and long-term specialised transition care focused on healing and monitoring your recovery after you return home from hospital. Our registered nurses can assist with wound care, medication, catheter care, pain management and much more.

Benefits of private in-home nursing after an operation or been discharged from hospital

Getting home from hospital is the very first step to your recovery. We find that those who recover from the comfort of their own home, circumstances permitting, enjoy been out of the clinical wards of hospitals as they begin their path to healing. Private nursing at home means you can enjoy your bed and creature comforts with the convenience of a nurse who comes to you as often as you require.

What other post hospital and transition care support can DANS assist with?

We also offer personal care (showering, grooming, etc), domestic assistance (help around the home) and respite care. While we specialise in nursing at home in Dubbo and surrounding areas, our team of happy staff can offer a range of support services tailored to your needs.
