Access to Health Care Professionals
The residents at Kankinya, have access to allied health professionals i.e. gerontologist, physiotherapist, podiatrist, dietitian, speech pathologist, dentist and other healthcare professionals. Each resident can choose his own attending general practitioner to keep the resident comfortable and familiar to their health and well being.
To assist the registered nurses, we have both Enrolled Nurses and Assistant Nurses. All the nurses at Kankinya hold at least a Certificate 3 in Aged Care nursing. Kankinya has over ninety qualified and experienced staff on duty throughout the week to provide comfort to both the residents and the families.
