Our Care Team

Oncology Nurses

Our Specialist Nurses will work in partnership with your current Oncologist to ensure you are clinically and emotionally receiving the most appropriate care.

Your Nurse will come to your home and remain with you for the duration of your infusion.

Your Nurse will also contact you following your Chemotherapy treatment to make sure your recovery is progressing well.

Holistic and Ongoing Care

Home Support Services’ holistic approach to care means you have access to a wide range of health professionals and in-home services.

Our Dietitians can provide support and advice regarding your nutritional intake, and our Physiotherapists can tailor a personalised conditioning program to help regain or maintain your strength and balance.

We also have Occupational Therapists who can set up your home and provide equipment for safe living, as well as Personal Carers and Domestics who can provide support to help you with your daily routine.

Your Funding Guide

HSS has agreements with a number of Private Health Insurers across Australia. Depending on your level of cover and specific care requirements, you may be eligible to receive a rebate or have your care fully funded by your private health fund.

If you choose to privately fund HSS’ services, our skilled and experienced Case Managers will be more than happy to speak with you about your specific care needs and tailor a package of care to suit.
