Personal care assistance

Wound care

Wound care

One of the most important factors to recovering at home after a surgery or procedure is wound care. If your wound is mismanaged, the risk of infection increases significantly and can lead to further health complications. Our clinical care team will monitor your wound, apply prescribed ointments, and dress and replace bandages to treat infection and prevent disease. Our expertise includes management of acute and chronic wounds, the use of simple and complex dressings including Negative Pressure Wound Therapy.

Medication management

Medication management

Medication Management helps to reduce the likelihood of medication errors and improves the safety and quality of care at home. A Registered Nurse will assist with medication set-up, scheduling and administration, including any injections, to ensure you have received the correct dosage. A clear line of communication will be established between Programmed Care, your pharmacist and GP to track your recovery.

Intravenous (IV) Therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy

Receiving IV therapy at home reduces the need for an extended hospital stay or regular visits to your treating clinician. Our nurses are IV certified and can administer a wide range of IV therapies.

IV therapy may be required to treat infections that are unresponsive to oral antibiotics or antiviral medications, nutrition support, dehydration, gastrointestinal diseases, congestive heart failure, Crohn’s Disease, haemophilia, immune deficiencies, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, bone infections, cellulitis, urinary tract infections, sinusitis, pneumonia and more.

Continence assistance and stomal therapy

Continence assistance and stomal therapy

Continence assistance and stomal therapy is designed to support the management of bowel and bladder control problems, normally through the use of continence aids. Our care team can support with aids and appliances such as disposable pads, bed pans, commode chairs, PEG tubes and ostomy pouches. Our trained nurses can also assist with managing and replacing your catheter and help you to develop a continence management plan.
