What is after hospital nursing care?
After hospital nursing care, also called ‘post-acute nursing’, gives you support during the transition back home after been discharged from hospital. This service is designed to help patients when they no longer need to be in hospital but may still need some care which can only be provided by a nurse, including nursing assessments.
In-home nursing gives you the opportunity to continue your recovery in the comfort and familiar surrounding of home, while still receiving a high standard of care.

What makes us different
Everything we do at Absolute Care & Health is designed to help our clients enjoy the best quality of life possible. In practice, that means treating you like an individual and getting to know your unique preferences, needs, and lifestyle goals. By getting to know you, we can provide care in the way that suits you best.
This is the same approach we use for all our in-home care services, so no matter what kind of support you need, we can help you achieve your recovery and lifestyle goals.
We understand that everyone is different and one size does not fit all. Some patients may require more than one kind of care services after being in hospital, so we also provide a comprehensive range of aged care and disability care services. This means we can truly tailor your care services to you.
Other after hospital care services
Along with the care services of our registered nurses, we can also support you with a range of other after hospital care services provided by our qualified and experienced personal care attendants (PCA).
You can get the support you need to make the transition back home as smooth and as comfortable as possible. Whether you need help with personal hygiene, 24 hour comprehensive care, or just need somebody to help with cooking and shopping, our team can help.
