What  Else  do  we  do?

Caring for our Community

Pop-Up Community Care is an Adelaide based health services business established by Jane Pappin, built on 35 years of skills and experience, gained at many levels in the private and public health sector throughout Australia.We are fast becoming the innovative leaders in delivery of In-Home nursing in South Australia and are an accredited Medicare provider for Dept of Veterans Affairs. We deliver in-home nursing to a growing number of defence veterans in SA and work with SA Health as a panel provider for the South Australian Community Care Program (SACC) providing early supported discharge from hospital.


Our innovative approach has also recently seen us gain success in co-designing and implementing a pilot program with the Northern Area Local Health Network (NALHN), which is designed to reduce presentations to the Emergency Departments at the Lyell McEwin Hospital and Modbury Hospital.

Pop-Up Community care maintains ongoing communication with your regular General Practitioner regarding your nursing care to ensure continuity of care for your health and lifestyle.  As an advocate for your health, we ensure your choices are respected and that you are provided with as much information as possible for decisions about your health.
