Chronic Disease Management

For people with diabetes, cancer, and other diseases

Having a chronic illness can affect all aspects of your life, particularly if you have long stays in hospital. To help you avoid this, our nurses work with you and your doctors to provide support to manage your health needs at home.

We support a range of chronic medical conditions including:

  • Cardiac failure
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Respiratory diseases such as asthma
  • Leg ulcers and other chronic wounds
  • Arthritis and osteoporosis
  • A range of other conditions

We can help you to manage your condition and improve your quality of life with services such as:

  • Health assessments, for example for pain or falls
  • Care planning and coordination of care
  • Health and clinical monitoring
  • Assistance with medications
  • Wound care and other nursing services
  • Working alongside your GP or specialist on your care
  • Allied health services including physiotherapy or occupational therapy
  • Education and support

Costs & Eligibility

Our home aged care services are available to seniors over the age of 65, (or over 50 years for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders).

The cost of your services will be determined by your eligibility for the Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) or a Home Care Package (HCP). Depending on your circumstances you may not need to pay anything at all.

If you’re not eligible for CHSP or a home care package, you can still access services through privately funded services, where you meet the full cost of care yourself.

Our approach to home care

Ozcare’s home care services are designed to help you keep living in your home for longer. With a personalised care plan created together with you and your family, we help you to become more independent with the aim of reducing your need for ongoing services, or the need to access higher care services such as complex nursing.

With 20 years’ experience in aged care, our team of carers, nurses, occupational therapists and other allied health professionals offer a complete suite of services in the comfort of your own home.
