The Supportive Plus community health nursing relationship style, a partnership of care, is less authoritarian and more egalitarian than the relationship of a nurse and a hospitalized patient. In the home setting, clients have more control over their behaviours about the plan of care; they choose whether or not to follow special diets, exercise regimens, or medication schedules. Nurses can help clients internalize the importance of healthy behaviours by teaching and adapting the care plan to the individual client. Care is more holistic.
Care focuses on managing diseases or wellness issues such as nutrition, exercise, aging, family developmental tasks, spirituality, sexuality, and stress. Supportive Plus’s Nurses explore client's needs related to their cultural beliefs, environmental and socioeconomic factors, and lifestyle.
Supportive plus nursing services are directed by experienced registered nurses and performed by enrolled endorsed nurses, enrolled nurses and assistant nurses in the comfort of your own home.
Registered nurses provide care plans that are based on a thorough examination that identifies your health conditions, the level of care required, and the appropriate medical interventions needed. Nursing is provided in consultation with your doctor and/or hospital discharge team. If there is an issue with your care and your GP is unavailable, Supportive Plus nurses have access to our in-house GP for clarification and guidance; we aim to provide the best possible care and management of your health issues.
Our team members receive regular supervision and continuous training to understand the diverse and changing care needs of our clients.
