YOUR CARE PARTNER

Only Care delivers a unique team/partner-based model of care that involves both our clients and our staff as key stakeholders.

Our clients and partners include those directly impacted by disability, condition or illness, and/or their nominees, family members, supporters, guardians, friends, medical and allied health teams etc.

Our professional care staff are carefully recruited and matched to our clients.

Our Client services, Rostering and Administrative personnel are recruited for their expertise.

Every situation is obviously different and so our services must be carefully and individually tailored to meet each person’s needs.  We first take the time to understand each client, their needs and their goals and we then work towards developing a solution to match.

Once the model of care is in place, there is an ongoing process of liaison and co-ordination to ensure the client’s needs and goals are continually being met.

Our staff qualifications include:

  • Local Registered & Enrolled nurses
  • International Nurses, Doctors and Allied Health qualifications/background
  • Certificate 3/4 and Diplomas in Disability, Aged Care & Community Services and AINs
  • Fitness and Remedial Massage Diplomas
  • Client Services & Rostering specialists
  • Administrative specialists

DISABILITY SUPPORTS

‘Disability’ spans a wide spectrum, and conditions include Physical, Intellectual, Psychosocial, Neurological, Spinal, Genetic, Degenerative, other Permanent Impairments and more, from mild to extremely complex, as well as spanning all ages.

At Only Care, while we do have wide experience with Disability and Complex Care, there is clearly no ‘one-size-fits all’ in terms of a single Service Provider being able to deliver all optimal services and supports.

We look forward to your initial contact with us to explain your needs and to work together to implement a great model of care. Should we be unable to directly offer services to suit, we’ll usually be able to suggest or refer you to others who might specialise in providing services and supports to match your needs.

ACCOMMODATION SUPPORTS

Many NDIS participants are interested in shared accommodation/co-living arrangements.

Advantages of this approach include:

  • Participants can receive more care ‘on tap’
  • Friendships with like-minded people
  • Better access to specialised support

Only Care work with our clients to develop unique shared models of care.

We particularly cater for people with Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy  and similar conditions.

HOSPITAL TO HOME TRANSITIONS & POST-HOSPITAL CARE

Adjusting back home after a period in hospital isn’t always easy.  Only Care staff are experienced in supporting the process of readjustment.

Should there be a change in care plan, our staff will work with you to optimise for your care outside of the hospital environment.

Our experienced staff understand the process of post-hospital care. Whether it’s help getting out and about, assistance back in the place of work, or supporting post-hospital clinical care, Only Care will work together with its clients and partners through this process.

SUPPORTED HOLIDAYS

‘Disability’ shouldn’t and doesn’t mean that a holiday is out of the question.

Sure, sometimes complexities can seemingly limit the options available, but Only Care is able to work with you to come up with packaged supported holiday options that might surprise you.

Please call us to discuss just what is possible.
