Within C<C, our goal is to provide quality, patient-centred, self-directed care as close to home as possible, making healthcare accessible and flexible to suit an individual’s needs. Our staff are privileged to be welcomed into patients’ homes and form rewarding partnerships with patients and their families, supporting them every step along the way of their healthcare journey.
Our newly developed locality-based model of care helps patients to maintain their independence and eases some of the pressures on our hospitals through reducing the number of avoidable admissions and early supported discharge from hospital.
By working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, our staff are able to take a big-picture approach to patient care, often treating multiple complex, intertwined needs. When visiting patients, our staff often work autonomously, relying on their own judgement which challenges them to truly work to the top of their professional scope.
