Yea & District Nursing Service

Yea & District Nursing Service provides nursing care in the homes of people living in Yea and surrounding districts.

We recognise that clients have individual needs and attempt to identify and cater for these needs when developing a nursing treatment plan. This is done through a process of assessment and consultation.

Yea & District Nursing Services can provide:

  • Continuing nursing care after discharge from hospital
  • Wound management
  • Assistance with hygiene needs
  • Observation and monitoring of blood pressure and blood sugar levels
  • Education and advice about medical treatment and health practices to promote wellbeing
  • Assessment and referral Information on accessing local support services
  • Palliative care
  • Support for carers

Active Service Approach

Yea & District Nursing Service supports an active service approach, helping clients remain as independent as possible.

The aim of the active service approach is to assist clients to:

  • maintain their current level of physically activity or even improve
  • remain part of their local community
  • retain current skills and in some cases learn new ones

Please talk with the District Nurse if you have a particular goal you would like to achieve or there is a task or hobby you once enjoyed but are no longer able to manage. Together we may be able help you to achieve the things that are important to you.
