RDNS SA Reshaping healthcare for older Australians
1 June 2012
With an ageing population, society is changing.
We are seeing a return to community-based care for the older generation as families become increasingly involved in the care of their elderly parents.
However, complex conditions such as heart disease, cancer and declining mental health, can prove challenging for those family members that provide care.
RDNS SA is a leading provider of in-home health and care services. With flexible, efficient and high quality care, RDNS SA have an expert and experienced team of nurses, allied health professionals and care workers who provide accessible, extensive and diverse range of services to patients of all ages – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Health and Care Services that may assist with the care of your parents or family members include:
Home Care Services: personal, respite and domestic care such as showering, meal preparation and shopping, helping to make living independently easier and safer.
Specialist Nursing Services: wound care, chronic disease, continence management, specialist aged care, diabetes, immunisation and mental health care.
Palliative Care: for those at the end stage of a terminal illness.
Home Therapy: such as physiotherapy, speech pathology, occupational therapy and podiatry.
Whatever care is required, we strive to ensure our clients retain their independence for as long as possible, keeping them in the comfort of their own homes.
“Together, we strive to give people more choices so they can, wherever possible, select the care package that works for them, retain their independence and achieve their health goals,” said Angela Littleford, Chief Operating Officer, RDNS SA.
We have access to an extensive network of partnerships and support across GPs, medical specialists and hospitals. Our holistic model of care ensures our client is well-looked after and is at the centre of the health care plan.
RDNS SA nurses are also equipped with on-the-road mobility devices which provide them with instant access to their schedules, client records and the ability to order relevant care items for their clients.
RDNS SA has been providing health care and education services to Australians since 1894. With more than 500 nurses, allied health professionals and care workers, we make more than 15,000 visits each week across Adelaide, making a difference in the lives of people every day.
