RMH Community Services works to help patients remain active and well at home and avoid the need for hospital admissions.

We provide patients with the extra support that they need after a hospital stay.

These services work with patients to optimise their health, ability to manage everyday tasks and quality of life. Staff will work with patients by taking a holistic approach to help them achieve the goals that are important to them.
