Community Nursing

Covering Geelong, The Surfcoast & Bellarine Peninsula

Geelong Disability Community Nursing Services.

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, etc, etc. 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. 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. 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.

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.
