Henry, a client of Barkly Community Care located in Tennant Creek , was required to travel a 1,000 kilometre round-trip journey to Alice Springs for medical appointments. To ensure a safe journey and to help make it easier for Henry to attend appointments, Barkly Community Care and Alice Springs Community Care worked together to ensure Henry received the care and support he required.
The ARRCS team waited with Henry in Tennant Creek until he boarded the bus, accompanied him to the hospital for appointments in Alice Springs and even shared a meal together before he embarked on the return six-hour journey to Tennant Creek. The two teams worked together to ensure Henry was comfortable and supported during his trip and went the extra mile to make the journey easier for him.
By working collaboratively, this holistic approach to care ensured that Henry was able to receive the care he needed.
