Continence management is part of our nursing services, which are offered at your home, work or our clinics.

Continence Management

Help with urinary and bowel incontinence

If you suffer from incontinence we can help you find ways to improve your lifestyle with a range of services delivered in the comfort of your own home.

Our dedicated nurses will speak with you about your symptoms, give you advice on how to improve them, discuss the most suitable continence aids, and provide care for catheters.

Services include:

  • Continence assessment
  • Bowel management
  • Catheter care for indwelling or supra-pubic
  • Continence aids such as pads and catheters
  • Exercises to improve pelvic floor
  • Dilatation
  • Applications for eligible government subsidies for continence aids
  • Education and support

Continence is often a treatable condition with the right support from your doctors and Ozcare. Whether you are experiencing a one-off episode, or need regular care, our nurses can help.

We also provide a kids bed wetting clinic on the Gold Coast and Brisbane South.

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.
