Leaders in Providing High-quality Holistic Home Healthcare and Wellness Solutions
With 20 Years of experience in caring for people, we are committed to your health, in the comfort of your home or retirement estate.
Who we are
Medwell SA focus on the principle of “Managed Home Nursing Care”, which ensures that the primary care of Medwell SA patients is continuous from Hospital/Rehab/Sub Acute to home. This guarantees that there is no interruption in the recovery process of the patient. Medwell SA works in conjunction with all relevant disciplines (GP’s, Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Social workers etc.) to form a multi-disciplinary team. Together we assess the medical history of the patient and provide relevant input to determine the Care Plan prescribed to our patients.
What we do
Managed care at home provides services based on the specific needs of individuals in the comfort of their own home. It provides a cost-effective alternative for prolonged hospitalization or institutional care.
A care plan tailored to the specific needs of the patient is adjusted to change it needs to prevent unnecessary services and reduces the cost as far as possible.
The involvement and inclusion of natural caregivers and relatives, as well as community support systems, add to the cost-effectiveness of the services. The care manager in liaison with a multi-disciplinary team ensures a quality service that can be adjusted to specific needs of the individual tailor-made to their personal and medical needs.
Medwell uses the process of care management to ensure that real needs are addressed in co-operation with the patient/client and all relevant role players. A comprehensive care plan is compiled in co-operation with a multi-disciplinary team involved with the patient (relatives; doctor; hospital; therapists; community resources, etc)
The care manager coordinates and manages the services in liaison with a registered nurse. The registered nurse does a full assessment of the patient’s needs in a hospital or at home prior to the commencement of services to establish specific needs.
A care team (care manager; registered nurse; personnel manager) identifies a trained and experienced caregiver according to the specified needs of the patient. Regular monitoring visits are carried out at home in accordance with the care plan to ensure high quality of service delivery.
Services can be adjusted anytime according to personal circumstances and needs of the patient. Medwell will negotiate on behalf of the client with a medical aid for available benefits.
