Help For You
Are you or is someone you know living with a neurological symptom or condition? The Neurological Council of WA is here to support and guide you through your journey.
Navigating you through your journey
Our team is made up of dedicated community neurological nurses and care navigators who work with people living with the impact of a neurological symptom or condition.
We understand every situation is unique and we will work with you to provide individualised and holistic care.
Our nurses offer support and guidance across a range of areas.
Advocacy and education
We can help you navigate health and social care systems to find the right support. We also provide information, advice and education on condition, symptom management and care options - ensuring you and your family understand what has changed for you and what you need to maximise your health.
Health care liaison
We can liaise with your treating doctors and other health care professionals after hospital discharge on health status, condition changes and other care issues - ensuring you are well supported in the community.
Care management and wellness plans
We can work with you and other health care professionals to ensure you have the information and knowledge to identify ways of maintaining and possibly improving your health. This is done through the identification of meaningful goals and strategies to maximise well-being and prevent further complications.
Our team provides a range of assessments to identify current and future care needs. The aim of these assessments is to work with you in setting health and wellbeing goals and assisting in the development of meaningful plans of care.
Monitoring and follow-ups
We can provide ongoing clinical management and encouragement in regards to self-management whilst ensuring you are supported to navigate the system maximising potential benefits to your situation, often with referrals to other health care professionals and/or services.
We hold regular Friends of NCWA support groups for clients and carers. These meetings provide an opportunity to socialise and be supported by like-minded people. We also incorporate education sessions to help manage wellbeing, quality of life and independence.
What our community neurological nursing service offers
Our nurses support during the diagnostic journey, pre-diagnosis, diagnosis and post-diagnosis stages. We are aware, for some people there is never a clear diagnosis, but understand the challenge of living with the impact of a neurological symptom or condition.
We offer pre-discharge hospital visits, home visits, telephone consultations and Telehealth video-conferencing across the Metropolitan, South West, Great Southern, Mid West and Wheatbelt regions of Western Australia.
Referrals to our service
We take referrals from general practitioners, health professionals, community service workers, regional assessment agencies and/or families and friends of potential clients. Self-referrals are also welcome.

The Neurological Council of WA are an amazing team of caring people who help people with neurological disorders ..... I know that they were instrumental in getting me back on my feet again, after my ABI. An amazing team, with Kathy McCoy at the helm. Thankyou everyone.
This is a great service for anyone with a neurological condition. The home visits by a Neuro nurse are brilliant and they are very helpful and supportive.
Great service and have helped me through a difficult time and are a big part in getting back to 100% health.
