Hitting adulthood means freedom, and Sladjana loves to get out and about to concerts, restaurants, nightclubs, and to see her favourite Perth Wildcats. Her medical needs mean she requires 24 hour direct care, and the Nulsen team have stepped up to deliver.
Upon turning 18, Sladjana transitioned from children’s services to a community-based model of care at Nulsen Disability Services. With the need for tracheostomy and ventilator care, Nulsen did a lot of research and had a lot of conversations before they could commit.
To ensure everything was successful, the team rostered extensive buddy shifts to become familiar with the care that was required during a complex transition.
