Your Side in partnership with Community Services #1 expand to Murrumbidgee

Your Side in partnership with Community Services #1 are delighted to announce that they have been awarded a contract for Out Of Hospital Care in regional NSW.

An initiative of the NSW Ministry of Health, Out Of Hospital Care prevents avoidable hospital stays by delivering non clinical care such as cleaning, meals and transport.

Our case managers will arrange short term packages of care for eligible people who can be safely and comfortably cared for at home instead of in hospital.

Out of Hospital Care combines the ComPacks and SASH (Safe And Supported at Home) programs and adds a new, non-clinical End of Life care program. Patients can be referred from hospital at discharge or from community medical centres.

Adding their expertise to the partnership are Violet, a social enterprise that aim to build resilience so that people are better prepared and supported as they care for a loved one at the last stage of life.

“We look forward to supporting people in the Murrumbidgee to be safe in their own homes while they recover, or while they are supported in the last stages of life. Embarking on a new regional footprint is a positive step in our growth strategy. ” says Danielle Ballantine, CEO of Your Side.

The Your Side and Community Services #1 partnership brings together two leading providers of home based support that deliver care for older Australians, people with a disability, their carers, and children and families.

“We are delighted to serve the community in the area, and also to be hiring locals to deliver this essential service” said Amanda Tobler, CEO of Community Services #1.
