RedFEB & Heart Research Month

| News

Heart disease is still Australia’s leading cause of death and affects families and communities around the country. REDFEB is dedicated to raising awareness for heart health and much-needed funds for research. 

Learning that you have a heart condition is a major life event. It can have a significant effect on you socially, physically, and emotionally. Understanding the impact and learning about your condition and its treatment are important steps in managing the impact – on you, and on your family and friends. 

After Surgery 

Post-operative care and hospital-in-the-home care are two of Right at Home’s specialty care services. We call these collectively “care transitions”. Many of the people in our care are trying to make a simple, safe, and smooth transition from hospital to home. 

Our care model includes services necessary to help patients transition safely out of a facility and provide nursing services at home where required. . When you are discharged from the hospital, the effects of your condition aren't necessarily gone when you return home – often making it difficult to adjust to daily life. Most readmissions are preventable with a little extra attention and care. That's exactly what Right at Home's RightTransitions™ program offers. 

Right at Home can provide services that allow you to get back on your feet and back to your life, including: 

  • Communication with family and healthcare providers 
  • Regular visits 
  • Medication reminders 
  • Transportation to doctor appointments 
  • Domestic Assistance - Meal preparation and Housework 
  • Nursing Services - Wound Care, Medication Management, IV, Catheter Care, Continence Care
  • Palliative Support
  • Chronic Disease Management
  • Personal Care - Bathing, Hygiene, Toileting, Grooming & Dressing, Assistance with Ambulation & Transfers
  • Overnight Services

Support for Partners, Family & Friends 

Support for you and your loved one is equally important during something as important as heart surgery. Caring for your parent, sibling, spouse or loved one after a hospital stay is no small feat. Right at Home’s respite care services offer relief, allowing family caregivers to grab coffee with a friend, catch a movie, or even take a much-needed nap. All the while, they can rest assured that their loved one is being cared for in the best of hands, allowing their mind, body, and soul an essential holiday – even if you only need us a few hours each week.
