Hospitals across the country keep struggling to accommodate patients due to the limited availability of beds and hence, getting the care support on time for non-critical patients can be tedious at times. We believe health care must be accessible to everyone in the community. The role of community nursing is significant to tackling this issue and helps patients who require clinical care achieve this in their own home.
The aim of community nursing is to promote and preserve the health of members in the community along with advocating the need of self-care among people. It is essential and significant to assist people in the community to maintain their health and well-being. Our qualified, registered nurses with strong clinical skills possess the capability to administer medication and provide care support.
The benefits of community nursing service includes,
- Getting assistance at home, where the patients can be comfortable in their own living spaces.
- Personalised care.
- Building a strong bond with the nurse as they visit you regularly.
- Preventing diseases and health issues.
- Maintaining or promoting level of independence.
- Education on the care being given.
