About Us

The pursuit of nursing excellence

Since 2007, our team has striven to achieve excellence in every aspect of domiciliary and occupational healthcare nursing. The complexity of the nursing services required by our clients, demands an integrated, fully comprehensive, case by case, healthcare management approach.

We take great pride in being able to offer the finest nursing services, tailored to the requirements of each and every client.

As the healthcare community is coming to understand, not only does domiciliary healthcare, specialist nursing and corporate wellness services reduce the overall cost of healthcare, they also improve the quality of life of loved ones, employees, and their families.

We are regulated and licensed as a medical nursing practice, bound by the Code of Ethics for Nursing in South Africa, mandated to protect, promote and restore health, prevent illness, preserve life and alleviate the suffering of individuals, families, groups and communities.

Patient-Focused HealthCare

An Holistic approach to healthcare

We’re excited to bring innovative, patient-focused care to our private and corporate clients. For all patients, their families, and corporate workforce members, the relationships forged with our nurses is central to the quality of their healthcare experience.

Often described as an extension of patient-centered care, our patient-focused care recognises that patients’ medical needs are best understood and addressed in the context of their entire lives, including their life goals and social, economic, emotional, and spiritual functioning. This can mean putting the person’s needs, as they define them, above those identified as priorities by healthcare professionals.

XtendedCARE is constantly expanding its ability to care for clients as whole persons, not just as patients or work place member, with sensitivity to nonmedical factors in planning and delivering care.
