Wound Management & Stoma Care

Care for people with complex nursing needs

If you have a wound, ulcer, tracheostomy, or stoma and want to continue living in your own home, our skilled nurses can help by visiting you at home to providing the nursing care you need.

  • Assessments for general health, pain, and wounds
  • Care planning
  • Acute wound care such as post-surgery incisions and skin tears
  • Skin grafts
  • Drains, port-a-cath and PICC management
  • Removal of clips and sutures
  • Chronic wound care such as leg ulcers, diabetic ulcers, pressure areas and infected wounds
  • Compression bandaging and stockings
  • Stoma care; assistance with colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy
  • Skin integrity checks
  • Nasal gastric and PEG care
  • Tracheostomy care
  • Negative pressure wound therapy management
  • Product education and assistance with ordering consumables
  • Working with your specialist, GP, dietitian, stomal therapist, and wound clinics

Our nurses are available seven days a week to ensure that your wounds are treated regularly and you avoid unnecessary stays in hospital. Our services can be used daily, weekly, or monthly as needed, or just for a short time while your wounds heal.

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.
