For most people, home is where they want to be; it’s comfortable and it’s familiar. Our in home care team understands and respects that and are passionate about delivering the care and support you need, whether it’s short term in-home hospital care that gets you back home as quickly as possible after a hospital stay or rehabilitation and recovery services in the home after surgery or some other medical condition.
Judith (67) began receiving our Hospital in the Home (HITH) services as a result of server abdominal surgery. Extremely keen to receive the care she needed, Judith wanted to be in the comfort of her own home with her husband.
Our specialised Case Manager coordinated all of Judith’s care, including Specialist Stormal Therapy to manage all aspects of her recovery. In addition to her clinical care, Judith also required education and emotional support to enable her to effectively self manage into the future.
“It was comforting to be in my own home with my husband even though I felt so unwell. I found that I recovered so much better and quicker being out of hospital and in my own surroundings”.
By the end of her HITH program, Judith was confident to continue to independently self manage and was grateful to have been able to receive care in the comfort of her own home.
