clever care now - caring for the community

Where it all began

In celebration of our 60th year, we share with you some of our Nurses On Wheels / Clever Care NOW milestones. This month we take a look back to where it all began.

We were originally formed in 1959 as Rockdale Community Mobile Nursing Service by Rockdale Council. This was further supported by a survey in 1967 on ‘Living Conditions of the Aged’ showing 27 areas of need of which the Rockdale Community Mobile Nursing Service was one.

Government funding, through the NSW Department of Health has supported the Nursing Service from the outset and continues today through State and Federal Governments.
