What is complex care?

Complex care is sometimes referred to as long-term live-in care or continuing complex care. As the name suggests, this type of care is rather more complicated it should only be administered by trained carers who are proficient in an array of specific caring methods.

How do our long term care or complex care services work?

At Independent People Homecare, our high-quality complex 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 make sure they can remain living in the comfort of their own home.

Our focus always remains solely on providing a responsive, specialist 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 complex 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, including:

  • washing and dressing
  • cooking meals
  • 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.
