Carbal @ Home
Carbal @ Home is an innovative new service allowing Carbal’s qualified nurses and Aboriginal Health Workers to deliver comprehensive, culturally-appropriate home care nursing services to clients within the comfort of their own homes across the Toowoomba region.
This approach recognises the importance of cultural connection, respect, and dignity in delivering effective healthcare to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. By eliminating the need to travel to medical facilities, Carbal @ Home helps to overcome potential barriers to accessing healthcare, such as transportation issues or cultural unfamiliarity with clinical settings.
All of our in-home nursing services operate in collaboration with our General Practice clinics, Allied Health Professionals, and community outreach programs, fostering a cohesive and comprehensive approach to healthcare.
Carbal @ Home provides the following
in-home care services:
- Medication administration and reviews
- Wound care
- Urine analysis
- Mobility and medical support
- iAssistance with My Aged Care applications
- Preventative health support and referrals
- Personal and domestic support can be provided to those who are registered for a My Aged Care package
