General Care

Nursing Staff

Carinya Care provides 24-hour Nursing staff, with round-the-clock access to a Registered Nurse. Our staff have vast experience and are invaluable for their compassionate and genuine care of our care recipients. Our Registered Nurses work with trusted health professionals to provide an individualised care plan for each care recipient, supported by our 24-7 care staff who carry out the day-to-day personal care needs.

Physiotherapy

Our Registered Physiotherapist heads our team of experienced Physiotherapy assistants, who work with our care recipients to keep them as mobile as possible and help them maintain their independence. We employ Pain Management, Mobility, Balance and Falls prevention strategies within our individual care recipients therapy programs along with providing group classes for social and health benefits.  

Our group classes are:

  • Yoga
  • Relaxation classes
  • Fit for Life classes, (exercise groups for strengthening)
  • Balancing class for falls prevention

Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists develop programs which are based on the individual assessments and are innovative and responsive to our care recipients social and therapy needs. They create a monthly activity plan which is available to care recipients and relatives and any input from care recipients/their next of kin is welcomed. Our Therapists also ensure that each care recipient has the equipment they require to encourage their independence. Translation cards and translators are used for care recipients who need them.

Community involvement is vital for our care recipients, so we facilitate regular contact between our OTA’s/ OT’s and community groups to engage volunteer visitors who come in to interact regularly with our residents. School children attend to perform concerts, play games and have chat sessions. View our Community Calendar or see Alternative Therapies below for more details of the variety of activities available to care recipients.

Podiatry

We have a relationship with a trusted podiatrist who attends to our care recipients needs on a regular and scheduled plan and is made available more often if required within a care recipients care plan.

Social Worker

We also engage social workers within our Transitional Care Program to complete assessments, planning, implementation and evaluation of care recipient’s social needs and financial status in relation to their goals. This way we can ensure our care recipients are supported and assisted in legal matters, and can answer any questions they may have on matters such as power of attorney and Guardianship and Administration orders. They can also liaise with external agencies to ensure a care recipient’s ongoing care is provided post discharge from our TCP services.

Alternative Therapy

We are careful to provide a range of alternative therapy options to our care recipients for both their social and physical well-being. These encourage care recipient’s interaction and socialisation, as well as providing many health benefits, both physical and mental.

Some of our Alternative Therapies are:

  • Art Therapy
  • Dance Therapy
  • Hand Therapy
  • Music Therapy
  • Reflexology
  • Delta Dogs Program
