We know there is no place like home.

D.A.N.S. can provide specialised clinical and support services to allow you to transition back into your home from a hospital stay.

Rehabilitative Support Services after a long stay

D.A.N.S. can provide clinical care to allow you to leave hospital earlier by having our experienced Registered Nurses oversee your care. We have extremely capable Registered Nurses who can offer specialised care to assist you in your transition home after a long stay in hospital.

D.A.N.S. can act as case managers to liaise with other health professionals to make sure that all rehabilitative support services are in place for you or your loved one to thrive at home.

D.A.N.S. carers can provide up to 24hour in-home care to give your loved one the option of being in the comfort of their own home. All care is provided under the direction of the D.A.N.S. clinical team.

Example: Client located on a Rural Property

D.A.N.S. has provided a client with 24hour care on their discharge from hospital. The client was in hospital for over three months. The 24hour care we provided enabled the client to come home from hospital earlier. Clinical and rehabilitative services were put in place in the home. D.A.N.S. acted as the case manager and co-ordinated all the care going into the home. This holistic approach provided the client with tools to recover in the comfort of their own home.

Day Surgery - Living Alone

We can assist your loved one transition home after day surgery or a short stay in hospital. Allow us to be the support network required during times of need.

Often people don’t know how much care is required after smaller procedures. Dubbo Area Nursing Service has flexibility available. We do not have set contracts. This means that you can increase and reduce services based on need.

We have caregivers and registered nurses who can transport your loved one home from hospital, stay overnight and check on clinical and support needs for however long required.

Example: Client located on a Rural Property

D.A.N.S. consulted with a client two weeks before day surgery at the hospital in town.

D.A.N.S. carer picked the client up from the hospital after surgery (after receiving a call from hospital staff). As the client had a general anaesthetic, the carer transported and settled the client home. The carer stayed overnight with the client, as requested by the surgeon.

The registered nurse provided a consult in the morning, after the client arrived home and the carer left in the morning.

The client and nurse agreed to daily visits for a fortnight and then to reassess the care requirements. Client was also able to call the D.A.N.S. office if they needed short term errands to be run for them (picking up mail, shopping assistance and domestic services).

All care was provided under the direction of a clinical nurse.

Specialised Care

D.A.N.S. has extremely qualified and capable registered nurses with years of experience in the private and hospital sector. This experience allows us to provide specialised care that is otherwise not available within the community.

Example: Chemical Burn Wound Care

A client was discharged from the Burns Unit – Concord, Sydney. The client was suffering from a severe third degree chemical burn tot he right lower leg that required a skin graft. The client had two wound sites, the graft site and the donor site. The D.A.N.S. registered nurses liaised directly with the Burns Specialists in Sydney.

Updates were given second daily, including pictures provided.

After four weeks of D.A.N.S. specialised care the client was able to dress the wound themselves and return to normal daily activities.

*Private health cover can potentially contribute to the cost of service.

Testimonial - Client's Family

Thank you from the bottom of our heart for the daily support, care and friendship that D.A.N.S. provided to my father. Remaining in his own home allowed him to live life and fulfil his interests with dignity. We are indeed fortunate to have such a wonderful support service available.

The D.A.N.S. staff are excellent, friendly and always on time. My carer (who is the same every time) is conscientious, and has a desire to do her job properly and with pride.
