Community Nursing


Community Nursing continues to be a familiar and friendly sight to those in the local community. Community Nursing in Ararat and Willaura has been successful in achieving aims of maintaining clients in their home environment, often eliminating the need for a hospital admission.


Community Nursing is a single access point for all community nursing needs including:

  • District Nursing
  • Home and Community Care
  • DVA Community Nursing
  • Palliative care
  • HARP (Hospital Admission Risk Program)
  • Hospital in the Home
  • Stomal Therapy
  • Wound Management
  • Living at Home Assessment
  • Personal Alarm Victoria Assessments

Our team provide a coordinated and person centred approach to our community clients’ needs. We have an experienced and diverse team, with specialist nurses who have undertaken post graduate studies in wound management, stomal therapy, case management, continence, palliative care, asthma education, oncology and diabetes management.

Fees charged at EGHS Community Nursing are charged in-line with Home and Community Care Fees Policy.
