New solution for Blacktown’s elderly: Quality nursing care at home

BLACKTOWN residents can now access quality healthcare within the confines of their own homes, thanks to the recently launched Nurse Next Door Home Care Services.
Given that 11% of Blacktown’s population is either an elderly resident or living with a disability, the nursing services is a much- needed service.
A survey conducted by Roy Morgan in 2020 found that there is an overwhelming desire for Australians to remain in the comfort, safety and familiarity of their own homes irrespective of their age or ability. 
“We believe we can provide a solution to the current strained healthcare system, overworked hospital staff and limited support available to our elderly residents and those living with a disability,” says Saral Thapa, Managing Director, Nurse Next Door Home Care Services, Blacktown. 
Launched on July 1, the team of nurses cover the suburbs of Prospect, Blacktown, Seven Hills, Kings Langley, Lalor Park, St Mary’s, Oxley Park, Plumpton, Colebee, Schofields, Quaker’s Hill, Rooty Hill, Eastern Creek, Doonside, The Ponds, Mt Druitt and the surrounding areas in the Blacktown LGA. 
Registered Nurse Saral Thapa and her husband Birat Thapa, decided to start this service in an attempt to provide a solution to the existing healthcare crisis.
“We want to offer elderly residents and people with special needs the opportunity to continue living independently at home, and at the same time receive medical care that they need. We can help them stay connected with their loved ones and community as long as they desire,” says Saral.
Nurse Next Door offers services in most states of Australia and its Blacktown services started in July this year. 
It assumes more significance, given the acute crisis in tackling health issues in Western Sydney post the Covid-19 pandemic, where the elderly have not really been given much of a choice on how they want to be cared for to ensure both their physical and mental health are intact. 
“Nurse Next Door is focused on getting Western Sydney residents, who require some level of care, back to doing the things they love, and we want each and every one of them to feel empowered to lead a life filled with Positivity, Possibility and Purpose,” says Birat. 
The team receives constant inquiries from potential clients in genuine need of their nursing services. 
“With the unwavering support of our community and the increasing demand for our care, we are confident in our ability to deliver the necessary assistance and support that will contribute to a higher quality of life for the elderly within our community,” says Saral.
