Nursing Care FAQ

  • How does post hospitalisation care work?

    This could happen in a few different ways;

    • If one of our customers is in hospital, the case manager closely works with the hospital to understand when the person is going to be discharged. We have an ability to have services ready to go when that person returns home.
    • Hospitals have short term support programs (such as STRC) – the hospital can engage a provider such as NovaCare so that we can provide supplementary care services when people have come home after surgery or major event.
  • In what ways do NovaCare nurses help with healthcare reviews?

    As part of homecare packages (namely level 3 and 4), there are 4 and 6 monthly reviews involving our RNs.

    Our RNs will attend the home, review the care plan and also the assessments. The purpose of this is to identify changes (i.e. weight fluctuations, changes in behaviour), ensure existing supports are appropriate and identify any new supports that may benefit the person.

    NovaCare is passionate about helping people to live at home, their way. Reviews are an essential part of managing the clinical care of someone who wishes to live independently.

  • Does NovaCare offer nursing services to people that are not NovaCare HomeCare package recipients?

    Typically not.

    Private engagements are usually done when a hospital directly contacts us for short term care and the patient would usually transition to a NovaCare client.

    We advocate for choice and control.


  • I’m an existing NovaCare client, how can I find out the cost of nursing care and how it alters my homecare funding?

    Our homecare package pricing is published on the MyAgedCare website.

    For a person who requires more nursing care, there would be discussions between the person and their consented family.

    Our lovely administration team are here to support people and provide monthly reports on expenditure, unused funds and so forth.


  • What is consumer directed care?

    Consumer directed care is consumers being involved in helping to identify the services that they want to help them live at home.

    When someone applies for a home care package the Aged Care Assessment Team will visit them in their home and as part of the process – identify clinical needs that the applicant has.

    There is then a discussion on how we can work together to meet some of these needs (i.e. identifying a meal delivery service with food preferences in mind).

    Consumer directed care is about providing control to a person and a way of expressing their requirements in their own, meaningful way.
