We understand there is nothing like the safety and security of being in your own home. Over time it becomes more than a roof over your head – it becomes your castle. Supporting you to remain living at home is where we can help.
Sue Mann Nursing and Community Care (SMNCC) is a specialist provider of nursing and in-home care services. We cover the Central Coast, Hunter and Sydney – and because we are a local team looking after local people, you have the assurance of a nurse nearby when you need it.
Our approach to care is all about you – your story, your needs, and what makes you happy.
Providing ‘Personalised Care by People who Care’ is at the heart of our core values.
Established in 1984, Sue Mann Nursing & Community Care started as a one-woman operation working from a car and a built-in cupboard desk to an inter-generational family run business with a growing team. Now the leading community care provider in the region, SMNCC however has remained true to the foundations of the business…being passionate about providing quality care to clients.
Graduating as a Registered Nurse at Gosford District Hospital in 1971, Sue Mann’s vision for quality patient care was shaped during her early days on the ward. A self-confessed “non-conformist” Sue challenged the regimented hospital system as a nurse in the 70-‘s.
She was disillusioned with the lack of time given to elderly patients in hospital, and was determined to pioneer a way to allow elderly people to stay in their homes, receive the nursing care they needed and enjoy a quality life as long as possible. And so, with a car, a phone, and an address book Sue Mann Nursing Service was born.
Over thirty years on, guided by Sue’s inspired leadership and pioneering vision, the Sue Mann team has provided the highest quality of care to thousands of clients all over the Central Coast, Hunter, and now in Sydney. A business built on the expertise of community nursing, and one that understands the value of family. In fact, today, the business is a true family affair. Sue’s son Andrew is Managing Director, daughter Brooke is Marketing and Communications Manager and husband Brian, while retired, still dedicates a lot of time to the business he once referred to as “Sue’s hobby”. In fact the family culture is evident throughout the business with a number of second-generation staff and clients among the mix.
Andrew has played a pivotal role in strengthening and expanding his mother’s vision of accessible and professional community based care since coming on board in 2003. He drives the strategic platform, business development and has introduced sophisticated systems and processes across the organisation. He is also responsible for writing all tenders for access to government funding and is regularly asked to present at leading national aged care conferences.
As for the secret to her success in business, Sue says it comes down to relationships, an emphasis on workplace culture and mandatory ongoing training. From the early days, Sue worked closely with local doctors, pharmacists and surgeons and was very grateful for their support in setting up a community nursing service - something that was new and innovative.
Within the business, she created a culture in which collaboration, transparency, communication, education and work life balance are paramount. Sue knows every staff member and makes an effort to engage personally with everyone on her team as often as possible. She is also an advocate for supporting older workers.
There is no one more important in Sue’s eyes than the clients themselves and it remains at the heart of everything Sue Mann Nursing & Community Care does.
