DEBRA Australia with the help of generous donors have been funding the in home nursing support program for our most severe EB individuals nationally. Most families involved in this care have found benefits in having some respite and additional support. The program offers In Home Nursing Support which includes a registered nurse for 2 visits per week / 3 hour sessions, who will provide direct wound care, bath and dressing changes. To be eligible for this support, individuals with EB must be under the age of 26. This program focuses on support within the family home in aim to relieve the stress and on-going, high demand of EB care.
