District Nursing

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.

Service is available Monday to Friday

Coverage areas include Flowerdale, Kinglake & Yea areas

The District Nursing Services is operated by qualified nurses.

We help our patients in their own home with a wide range of conditions and situations including:

  • Carer Support
  • Continence Management
  • Dementia care
  • Diabetes management
  • Medication management
  • Palliative care
  • Post-acute care
  • Wellness and Reablement
  • Wound care
  • Referral for personal care assessment and assistance
  • Stoma care & management

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.
