Complex care is sometimes referred to as long-term 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.
At Independent People Homecare, our high-quality complex live in care at-home service is often a cost-effective alternative to arranging care within a nursing or a residential care home. With the support of a highly experienced live in carer, we can support a wide range of complex care needs to ensure our customers can remain living in the comfort of their own home.
Many individuals benefit greatly from having the one-to-one care and attention that our live-in care service provides. We can help and support a wide range of complex and advanced conditions, including (but not limited to) spinal injuries, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, degenerative conditions and congenital disease. Our team provides the vital complex care and support our customers need to manage their condition and maintain the lifestyle they choose.
Our Complex Care Service
Our focus always remains solely on providing a responsive, high quality complex care service that not only meets, but consistently exceeds, expectations. We are able to support adults at home in the long-term with a variety of conditions, which include:
- Home ventilation and respiratory support
- 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 service to meet their evolving needs and preferences.
Our live-in carers can of course manage the customer’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.
