Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use Nurse Next Door instead of hiring a private caregiver?

Finding the right kind of senior home care can be difficult but at Nurse Next Door we make sure you know exactly what you will be receiving with our services. Here are some of the questions you should consider prior to making that decision:

What kind of background and screening checks can you do on your own for a caregiver?

All Nurse Next Door Caregivers are carefully screened with police checks and, if applicable, Working with Children and Disability Screening Checks. We confirm our Caregivers' educational credentials and verify upon hire and annually, that every nurse is registered and in good standing with AHPRA. If you hire a caregiver privately, you will need to perform background checks and screening yourself.

If my caregiver is unavailable, who will fill in?

At Nurse Next Door, we ensure there is a replacement when one of our Caregivers becomes unavailable. We believe in continuity of care and will contact you to inform you of a Caregiver change. If you hire a caregiver privately, it may be difficult to find a replacement caregiver depending on how much notice is given.

Will I have the same Caregiver or Nurse all the time?

At Nurse Next Door, we strive for consistency of care and provide regularly assigned Caregivers. Our goal is to find the perfect match between our clients and Caregivers based on their needs, hobbies, and interests. Caregiver consistency is essential to building strong relationships, and delivering on our philosophy of Happier Ageing.

Are your home care services only for older people?

No, we provide home health care services to the entire age spectrum – from newborn babies to people in the later stages of life. We can also provide assistance with special needs care for children and adults with disabilities, as well as post-operative care, health checks, and other services for any age.

Do you provide services for people on the NDIS?

Yes, Nurse Next Door provides services for people on the NDIS, ranging from simple caregiving duties to working with participants requiring High Intensity supports and complex nursing needs. We work with Support Coordinators and directly with participants to ensure care needs are met.

Can I just try our Nurse Next Door or do I have to sign a long-term contract?

You are not locked into a long-term contract. You may cancel care from us at anytime — we just need a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel services without any cost.

To try out Nurse Next Door, just contact us to book a complimentary, no-obligation Caring Consult™. We believe in making things easy for you. One of our Care Designers will visit your home to assess your needs and design a care plan with you, which will including frequency and duration of care.
