Complex Care at home

When it comes to care, there is no one size fits all solution. That’s because no two people are exactly alike. Rather, each person is unique with their own desires, preferences, and needs. As a care provider, we believe in providing quality care in the comfort of a person’s home, no matter how complex their medical needs are.

Read on to learn more about complex care in Christchurch and how our highly-trained carers can help you live safely and happily at home for longer. 

What is complex care?

Complex care is specialist care provided to people with chronic or long-term health conditions. The purpose of complex care is to help people with specialist medical needs live safely at home for longer, rather than spend time in and out of hospital wards or have to move into a care home. 

Whether your loved one was born with a disability, was recently discharged from the hospital, or requires extra support due to an injury or illness, you can count on our nurse-led care team to provide comprehensive clinical care that goes beyond the support offered by the NHS. 

Who is complex care for?

Complex care is designed to support those with a long-term or progressive injury or illness. Unlike general domiciliary care, complex care involves specialist services to support a person’s unique medical needs. Conditions that require complex care can include both mental and physical disabilities. Here are some examples: 

  • Huntington’s disease
  • spinal cord injuries
  • multiple sclerosis
  • learning disabilities 
  • locked-in syndrome
  • stroke recovery
  • parkinson’s disease 
  • epilepsy
  • dementia 
  • brain damage
  • muscular dystrophy.

These conditions may require full-time care or support from medical technology, which is why they are considered complex. Our specially-trained team is adept in specialist care techniques such as stoma care, gastrostomy feeding, oral suctioning, bowel management, PEG feeding, oxygen therapy, and more. 

How long does complex care last?

Our complex care services recognise that every situation and individual is unique. Whether you’ve just been discharged from the hospital and need help getting back on your feet, or are dealing with a progressive illness that requires long-term support, our flexible care packages are here for you when you need us. We’re happy to adapt to your changing needs so that you get the right care at the right time. 

The benefits of receiving complex care at home

We believe that everyone deserves to live with dignity and respect, regardless of their health or medical needs. We also believe that everyone deserves to have the choice of remaining in the comfort of their home to receive the support they require, rather than have to move into a care home. 

Personal support from a professional carer can enable a person to retain their independence as much as possible while enjoying the comforts of home and receiving the medical support they need to live life to the fullest.
