The wSw Convalescent Care & Support Program
wSw offers patients who are no longer acute or requiring specialised care or treatment, assistance with their discharge from hospital.
wSw utilises appropriate residential care options to further support and care for patients prior to returning home.
One of the many benefits offered by wSw is how a patient is placed into a residential care facility close to family and friends proving beneficial for several reasons:
a) being close to loved ones has been medically proven to significantly assist in a patients’ recovery
b) it allows elderly partners and friends easy access, which in some cases may be just a five-minute walk.
wSw aligns itself with only the best credentialed, most highly ranked residential care facilities to ensure patients don’t merely reside in a nice, well equipped facility, rather they also receive the best possible care specifically catered for their condition.
Should circumstances change, wSw will call on its 15-year history of assisting patients and their loved ones with the complexities of remaining in a residential care facility.
