Who do speech pathologists support?

Speech pathologists support people of all ages, from children living with disability to adults who have acquired a communication problem or who have had a disability from birth.

  • Developmental delays

  • Brain injuries due to accident or illness

Expert Community Health Nursing Services

At Salveo Nursing, we understand the demanding nature of community nurse roles, which require a range of skills to perform their job well. As community nurses ourselves, we possess the skills needed to provide high-quality care and support to patients in a variety of different environments each day.


Here are some important skills we use daily in our roles:

Resilience skills: We work in dynamic and high-pressure environments that may lack resources and support that are available to nurses in bigger hospitals. Resilience helps us endure the challenges and rigors of our job while staying positive.

Time management: We manage multiple responsibilities and tasks with competing priorities. Excellent organisational skills ensure we manage our caseload effectively and provide patients with timely care and support.

Mobilisation skills: We seek resources to combat illness and support the well-being of community members. Mobilization skills help us get adequate resources from groups, healthcare providers, schools, agencies, and community leaders.

Good communication: We relate to patients of all ages and backgrounds. Strong interpersonal communication skills enable us to provide nursing care, advice, and emotional support to families in the community we serve.

Personal care and hygiene: We observe good hygiene to help prevent the spread of contagious diseases within the community.

Patient assessment: We know how to assess and monitor patients with different health issues or medical conditions. Having the ability to measure vital signs and how patients respond to medication ensures we can stabilize the patient before seeking help from a senior nurse or doctor.

Wound care: When patients sustain injuries that result in open wounds, we clean and bandage them. Strong nursing care skills ensure we provide patients with proper first aid treatment before they undergo specialized treatment.

Teamwork: We often work with medical teams, including doctors, physiotherapists, surgeons, and psychiatrists to deliver comprehensive patient care services. Strong collaboration skills ensure we rally other healthcare professionals to deliver the best patient outcomes.

Adaptable: We attend to older people with chronic health issues, physically disabled people, and patients who have just left the hospital. The ability to adapt to different settings ensures we meet the different healthcare and support needs of our patients.

Compassionate: We usually work with people with disabilities, aging community members with chronic diseases, and patients in need of care after surgery. Compassion allows us to properly care for patients who are suffering from physical, emotional, or mental pain.

Problem-solving skills: We encounter challenges and obstacles as we seek to improve a patient's health and well-being. Using our problem-solving skills, we can ask the right questions and consider viable options to solve problems effectively.

At Salveo Nursing, we are committed to providing the highest level of care and support to our patients. Trust us to deliver exceptional community nursing services that meet the unique needs of your loved ones.
