Commencing in December 2013, Silver Chain Group is proud to be working with community health services in New South Wales to provide personal care and evening nursing visits for people being supported through their end of life stage at home.
The program is based on the model developed and piloted by South Western Sydney Local Health District (LHD). Silver Chain’s role in the partnership supplements the care each LHD’s community-based specialist palliative care team currently delivers, in supporting patients to die at home. Silver Chain’s service will commence in the last seven days of life, and consists of:
- personal care during the day;
- a visit from an evening nurse (including additional personal care if required); and
- video support (via a tablet device) with a night nurse.
These services are available in specified areas within the following local health districts:
- South Western Sydney
- Western Sydney
- Mid North Coast
- Hunter New England (commenced 3 March 2014)
- Northern NSW (commenced 3 March 2014)
Commencing later in 2014:
- Nepean Blue Mountains
- Illawarra Shoalhaven
