Complex care is sometimes referred to as long-term live-in care or continuing care. As the name suggests, this type of care is rather more complicated and for this reason should only be administered by trained carers who are proficient in an array of specific caring methods.
What is Complex Care or Long Term Live-in Care?
At Independent People Homecare, our high-quality long-term care at home service is a cost-effective and personal alternative to care within a nursing or a residential care home. We provide individuals with the support of a highly experienced live-in carer, who can support a wide range of complex care needs to ensure they can remain living in the comfort of their own home.
What conditions can our complex care at home cater for?
Our complex care packages deliver continuous health care on a one-to-one basis, limiting stress and disruption for individuals with debilitating conditions. As experts in supporting those with complex care needs, we offer care and help for people with (but not limited to):
- Spinal Injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Cerebal Palsy
- Degenerative conditions
- Congenital disease
Our friendly, compassionate team of trained live-in carers provides the vital complex care and support individuals need to manage their condition and maintain the lifestyle they choose.
How can a complex care plan help?
Our focus always remains solely on providing a responsive, high quality long term live-in care service that not only meets, but consistently exceeds, expectations. We can provide complex care for young adults as well as elderly people to support them with a variety of tasks.
Here’s how we can help:
- Home ventilation and respiratory support
- Pain from head and spinal injury
- Tracheostomy care
- Gastrostomy and nasogastric feeding
- Medication administration
- Bowel and epilepsy management
- Continence care
We work closely with individuals, families and healthcare professionals to develop a unique, person-centred complex care plan which identifies all their requirements and allows them to have choice and control over their care.
This enables them to lead independent, active, and fulfilled lives whenever possible. As care needs change, we continuously adapt our continuous health care service to meet their evolving needs and preferences.
What will the Live-in Carers do?
As part of our complex care package, our live-in carers can of course manage the individual’s physical needs – such as washing and dressing them, cooking meals, and carrying out household tasks – but what’s much more valuable is their companionship and ability to provide emotional support to the individual themselves and their family members in the longer-term. It’s vital that everyone is united in working towards delivering the best possible care.
