Nursing Support at Home
Sydney District Nursing (SDN) Community Service provides palliative care for patients in their own home, including symptom management and medication support. The nurses work closely with the patient’s general practitioner and specialist doctors as well as with Allied Health to ensure they are cared for with comfort and dignity. Sydney District Nursing provides 24 hour a day support to carers and families & can source additional services for the patient as their needs change.
