About DVA Community Nursing

Royalty Scope Nursing Services is a government approved Community Nursing Provider for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The term DVA Approved means the provision of a range of in-home care or community support programmes that can help people to live independently with support for health, well-being and keeping in touch with the local community. DVA Approved services are supported by the Community Nursing Program. This program applies to individuals who are a part of the Australian defence Force, Australian Federal Police and War Veterans.

The workers from Royalty Scope Nursing services are wonderful… They help me day to day by explaining everything and helping me get through things. They are always on time and know what they are doing. I have already recommended them to individuals through NDIS previously and I would still highly recommend anyone based on my comparison on their plans and support given.

NDIS Participant
Royalty Scope Nursing Services have made things a lot easier for me. My relationship with my support worker is very good; she loves my guitar playing and regularly enjoys listening to me practice. I would strongly recommend to anyone a part of the NDIS. They are so good that It’s like wearing a mask, its mandatory to recommend.

Anthony

NDIS Participant
Royalty Scope has been caring for my 97-year-old father for over two years… Georginah and her team are amazing! They are responsive, supportive and have provided a very high standard of care to my father. I would recommend them without hesitation. These services have helped us as a family, especially the overnight care as it allowed us to get additional support for ourselves. It has meant that we are able to keep him in the home surrounded by people he loves, and allowed him to maintain a sense of dignity. Without Royalty Scope he would be in residential care.
