Letter from a client in Northern NSW.

“I suffer with a chronic lung disease and have recently deteriorated to the extent that it has become difficult for my wife to care for me at home on her own. My wife and I made numerous enquiries regarding obtaining assistance to care for me in our own home, but unfortunately our enquiries were to no avail.

Whilst wondering how we would manage alone, we were fortunate enough to meet Melanie Scott, who is a highly qualified and experienced health professional. Melanie’s knowledge of the type and extent of assistance available and how to go about accessing this assistance was nothing short of amazing. Within two weeks of meeting Melanie , I had been granted a high dependency health package, which is of enormous assistance to both my wife and I, both physically and emotionally. Because of this support, we are now able to look to the future more confidently and with much less anxiety.

Melanie has the unique ability to communicate efficiently with health professionals and government organisations alike, as well as being able to interact compassionately and effectively with people who have found themselves in a difficult position to which they are still struggling to adjust.
Melanie’s professionalism, knowledge and compassion are second to none and I cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone in a similar position to myself. She has been a godsend.”

 
My aim is to support clients in making informed decisions regarding their health and social care needs, and I look forward to working with you in the future. - Melanie
