Oxley Home Care are currently contracted by the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) to provide DVA Community Nursing Services to clients living in Sydney Metropolitan area.
DVA provides veterans and war widows/widowers (entitled persons) with access to a range of quality health care and related services, including community nursing services, at DVA’s expense.

The DVA Community Nursing Program provides home community nursing services for entitled persons to meet their assessed clinical and personal care needs.

As a DVA contracted community nursing provider, Oxley Home Care’s aim is to enhance the independence and health outcomes of the entitled person by avoiding early admission to hospital and/or residential care through access to community nursing services. These community nursing services are delivered by registered nurses, enrolled nurses and nursing support staff.

Eligibility for DVA Community Nursing Program

If you are a Gold Card Holder or Veteran White Card holder living at home and have been assessed as needing DVA Community Nursing home care assistance, you may be eligible for support through DVA Community Nursing.

To receive DVA Community Nursing, the veteran, war widow/widower must receive a referral from their Doctor, the Hospital Social Worker or Hospital Discharge Planner.

Following a referral from a Doctor, Hospital Social Worker or Hospital Discharge Planner, our Registered Nurse will arrange a time to complete a comprehensive assessment.

What level of assistance is available?

The duration and frequency of support will be dependent on the outcome of the comprehensive assessment. All Veterans are also eligible to Veteran Home Care services and  Government Home Care Packages and Private Care, which can be used to top up services funded through DVA.

To be eligible for access to a Home Care Package you require a comprehensive assessment by your local Age Care Assessment Team (ACAT). This needs to be arranged by contacting My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or visit My Aged Care website www.myagedcare.gov.au

Testimonials from our valued clients.

My Care Worker, Karin, is so efficient, capable and caring. She has proved to be intelligent, reliable, conscientious and her integrity is undoubted. She has been a huge factor in my living in my own home with all my health problems.
Her assistance in so many ways has contributed greatly to me achieving this and hopefully will continue for some time to come. I am very lucky to have the assistance of such a capable and understanding Care Worker from Oxley Home Care.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

I have been fortunate and blessed. My mother has been looked after with such professionalism, kindness and concern that is usually offered by a daughter or son. The Case Managers have never said no to my needs or wishes.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

Hi Gillian, I just wanted to let you know that sadly, I will be finishing up at CCNB on Friday. It has been a pleasure working with you over the last 9ish years, Oxley have always been so responsive and easy to work with, yourself in particular, and CCNB really value the relationship we have with you. I hope there are many more years of a successful partnership to come.
