Complex care is sometimes referred to as long-term care or continuing complex care. As the name suggests, this type of care is rather more complicated it should only be administered by trained individuals who are proficient in an array of specific caring methods.
Our complex health care teams care for people with a wide range of conditions. These conditions may be physical or emotional and present a variety of needs which require specialist support.
We work very closely with other healthcare professionals – community nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech and language therapists to provide tailored care for those we support. Our clinical governance is robust and uses comprehensive guidelines, support plans and health action plans to ensure that staff know exactly how to support a person to stay healthy and well.
We find solutions to help people to have an excellent quality of life and enjoy opportunities to live in their community.
Our aim is to help your loved one, remain at home and to live a full life. It’s important to us that our care programmes are tailored to both their medical needs and support their emotional well-being.
We understand that coping with complex health, or medical condition, can be difficult and that psychological and social support is vital in helping overcome feelings of low self-esteem, loneliness and, for some people, depression. Together, we’ll build a care programme that is all about how we can help and support your loved one. We’ll liaise with the GP practice, community health teams and hospital consultant to ensure they receive a continuity of care in your home across a complete and informed support team.
