Living, loving and leaving

Hospice at home service - on your terms.
Full Circle Nurse Practitioner Care is here to support you and your family through difficult times

What We Do

the Full Circle Approach
Full Circle Nurse Practitioner Care are holistic, registered nurse practitioners

We specialise in professional palliative care and the management of chronic health conditions. We support your practical needs and emotional needs, when you and your loved ones need it most.

We are a private, fee-for-service provider. This means we are not attached to any government or corporate service. We can act as independent members of a healthcare team, or on our own, as the client requires.

Our purpose is to provide those valuable elements of care and nursing that can 'fall through the gaps' particularly in periods of high stress, like an end of life event in a family.

What's different about our care?

We add the nurture factor to your medical team. That means we work to alleviate suffering; we allow people to be vulnerable. We recognise people’s value and preserve dignity, while helping the family to cultivate optimism and hope, even when the situation looks hopeless.

Full Circle Services

Palliative Care

Personal, family-centred care for anyone, at any age, with a potentially life-shortening disease or condition. 

Complex Nursing Support

We offer disease-disability-age related health support. We also train primary carers and NDIS support staff.

Hello. I'm Faye.

I’ve helped hundreds of families through very difficult times, over more than three decades of hands-on nursing. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but palliative care and complex nursing is my calling, and I feel privileged to be able to meet the needs of my clients.

Nursing, for me, has always been about how the work is done and not what I do. Without a doubt, moving into community nursing over a decade ago was my best career decision.

I’ve invested continually in specialist development, particularly in palliative care, as well as postgraduate nursing studies. This ensures my clients receive the latest in professional care, alongside the wisdom earned through experience.

I've learned:

  • How to accept people and situations without judgement
  • Helpful ways to cultivate gratitude in life’s journey – mine and others
  • Engaging with curiosity in order to fully understand, and from an emotional perspective
  • How active listening develops connection and compassion
  • What a privilege it is to give care
  • The benefits of choosing to be kind

Qualifications and Affiliations

  • Registered Nurse with Nurse Practitioner endorsement
  • Graduate Certificate: Community & Primary Health Care Nursing (2021)
  • Master of Nurse Practitioner Studies (2015)
  • Master of Nursing: Chronic Disease / Palliative Care (2013)

More Information

Hospice at home is always focused on quality of life. It’s a combination of medically-driven care, combined with compassion and the involvement of the client’s family and close community. Hospice at home can include palliative care, like symptom and pain management.

Hospice at home means visiting you where you live, or where your loved ones live. Visits and scope of service is mutually agreed. Typically, we’ll visit weekly, or more frequently if mutually agreed. For palliative care, when the end is near, we will often visit daily.

A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a Registered Nurse with the experience, expertise and authority to diagnose and treat people of all ages with a variety of acute or chronic health conditions. I am a specialised palliative care provider, as well as being a registered Nurse Practitioner.

Nurse Practitioners can prescribe medications, refer to specialists and hospitals, order diagnostic tests and work as key members of a wider healthcare team. Most importantly, nurse practitioners can visit a family member (even in aged care), and give a holistic assessment to you and their GP.

The title “Nurse Practitioner” can only be used by a person who has been endorsed by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.

An initial discussion and assessment is usually 60-90 minutes. There’s an upfront cost for this time.

Once we’ve discussed your health care priorities and agreed on what kind of services are needed and how often, we’ll provide a detailed cost estimate.

We are a private, fee-for-service provider and we deliver services not always funded by Medicare or private health funds. For NDIS clients, rates and services will align with national pricing guidelines.

Depending on what suits your needs you can either:

  • Pay a retainer to secure services through Full Circle for use when required; OR
  • Pay at the time my service is needed, at an hourly rate. You’ll receive the next available appointment.

We know that sometimes the unexpected can happen.
If Full Circle services are not required, any retainer monies paid will be refunded.

At a time when needs are higher, palliative care helps you and your family to live as well as possible, with emotional and practical nursing support on hand. We teach the primary carers how to deal with the everyday duties if needed.

Because the patient and family are dealing with unknowns, illness and anxiety, it’s important that we help our patients maintain a sense of identity and even optimism. There’s no two situations alike, and palliative care ‘cares for the carer’ too.

Palliative care can leave the family with positive memories, and we work with the family through grief and bereavement if needed.

We can support the wishes of the patient, and help the family ensure future plans are in place and well organised.

Nurse practitioners work with clients afflicted with a wide variety of chronic diseases and conditions, whether that’s heart, lungs, renal, diabetes or neurological problems. We offer disease-disability-age related health support from young adulthood right through to frailties of old age, and everything in between.

Full Circle also trains primary carers and NDIS support staff to provide complex care. NDIS-funded nursing services can include specialised assessment on what services and level of support you need.

I can work with you to explore all the options for care.

We want our clients to enjoy life to the fullest possible extent.

Typically, we visit people in their homes, at an aged care facility, in a hospital or hospice. For disability clients, we can visit supported living accommodation. We work throughout Rockhampton and Yeppoon regions.

Full Circle is located in Rockhampton on the land of the Darumbal people. We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the Darumbal people past present and future, and their elders. I pay respect to their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this community and this region.
