The Dubbo Area Nursing Service (D.A.N.S) is a locally owned service that offers nursing, in home, dementia and disability care to assist you to stay at home.
Whether you need support with domestic chores like washing clothes, light cleaning and cooking, or you have more complex needs that require 24 hour specialist nursing care, our team of more than 30 Health Care Professionals are specialists in providing exactly the right kind of care for you.
We offer flexible service, with no fixed-term contracts, and when you use our service, we will work with you to create the ideal level of care that will ensure you can remain independent and stay in your own home. We can offer casual, short-term or ongoing care – and with no fixed contract, as needs change, so can the level of care we offer.
With our service available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, we specialise in elderly and disabled care, with a holistic approach that makes the most of the relationships that we have built in Dubbo. We have access to other health care professionals, hospitals and GPs, and can use these relationships to help our clients get access to services that they might need – as they need them.
We know that experience counts, and we have helped over 5,000 people remain in their homes and keep their independence with our professional, loving and individualised care.

Contact the Aged Care Assessment Team to get a free assessment, and you will be allocated a level of funding according to your needs. We can work with your funding to provide you with care as well as contributing to other services like physiotherapists, occupational therapists and podiatrists as needed.
The Aged Care – Home Care Package can fund 24-hour care, live-in care and individual specialised care.
We are also a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider – so if you qualify for funding because of a disability, we can work with you to use that funding to help you stay in your home and remain independent.
