Complex care, sometimes known as continuing healthcare, is specialist care provided to people with health or social care needs; giving support to enhance their quality of life, enable them to reach their full potential, and live independent and fulfilling lives.
Health and Social Care Services is a specialist provider of home care services for people with complex care needs. Therefore, we recognise that when you have complex care needs it can feel like you have lost control of your own life. With our complex care services, we wish to give you that control back.
Our care packages are built by you and are designed to meet your needs. The care delivered can be at home, at work, on holiday, at university or wherever you need it to be. We can be engaged at any stage of your journey, from the first point of discharge to home and onwards.
We can provide:
We will support you in coming to terms with your injury or diagnosis as much as we possibly can, this support can be in terms of physical, psychological or social support. We welcome any complex care enquiries and will be honest in what we can and cannot deliver. From the initial assessment, always carried out by an experienced registered nurse, we will start to design your complex care package with you. Considering your likes, dislikes, wishes and aspirations.
Throughout the building of your complex care package and the recruitment of the team we will keep you as informed as you would like to be. You are welcome to interview with us if you wish. Open and honest communication being key to a successful relationship. Once the team is in place, fully checked in line with CQC requirements and our professional duty of care, we will then provide any training required and ongoing support for the team and, if required, your family members. Training will be classroom and home based to ensure it is fully personalised to your needs. We will continue to monitor the care delivery throughout and ensure we are on hand to help when needed. We can visit you as often or as little as you like, using our IT system to monitor from a distance when you would rather us be discreet.
In addition to supporting you and your team, we can also provide evidence on a regular basis, or as and when required, in any format for case managers or commissioners.
