HomeCare Lymphoedema Management at HomeCare

What makes us different?

Our team comprises of Australian Lymphology Association Accredited Practitioners., and we are the only provider who can provide a home visiting service for lymphoedema management throughout the Perth metro area.

What is lymphoedema?

Lymphoedema is the accumulation of excessive amounts of protein-rich fluid resulting in swelling of one or more regions of the body. This is due to a mechanical failure of the lymphatic system and occurs when the demand for lymphatic drainage exceeds the capacity of the lymphatic circulation.

Lymphoedema cannot be cured but it can be reduced and managed with appropriate intervention. The stage, location and severity of the lymphoedema together with the individual circumstances of the client will influence the most appropriate intervention.

Lymphoedema management and treatment

Treatment is individualised for each client and not all components of treatment may be necessary in all cases. Those with mild lymphoedema may only require education, exercise and skin care whereas for more severe cases treatment may be longer and require two phases.

Early intervention is recommended, so please call us on 9424 0200 to discuss your individual circumstance with one of our accredited Lymphoedema practitioners.
