GDS Community Nursing

GDS community nursing provides clinical nursing by registered nurses to participants in their own home as part of the NDIS scheme. Community nursing services can assist with medication, wound care, hygiene, and more.

Restore your health &
maintain your independence

Community nursing services can help to restore or maintain your health and independence at home and assist you to avoid early admittance to hospital or residential care. 

Customized Nursing and Personal Care Services

PCS will provide a registered nurse to assess your clinical need for nursing and/or personal care services. 
A registered nurse will then determine, in consultation with you and our Director of Support Services, the number, type and frequency of nursing and/or personal care services you need. 

Review, Monitor & Continued Assessment

These will be monitored and reviewed at least monthly by a registered nurse to ensure the care you receive is appropriate to your clinical needs.

Does your NDIS plan make you eligible?

To determine whether your NDIS plan covers community nursing, you should first review your plan and speak with your NDIS planner. They will be able to provide more information about the specific services and supports covered under your plan.

Advice & Education
on Safety Equipment

Our nurses are also able to provide advice and education on appropriate safety equipment for the home, and refer to an Occupational Therapist for specialist equipment if it is identified that this is required.
