4Life Healthcare Services - What is Complex Care?

WHAT IS COMPLEX CARE?

Complex Care (also known as long-term continuous health care) encompasses all of the services of hourly Domiciliary Care and/or Live-in Care, but provides specialist support for patients with specific chronic health conditions, such as physical disabilities, gastrostomy feed needs, brain damage, end of life, or assistance, following a recent hospital discharge.

 

Our complex care services range from help with domestic tasks and companionship, to more hands on support such as medical administration or airway management.

Our trained carers work in constant collaboration with Local Authorities, Care Managers, GPs, District Nurses, Hospitals, Occupational Therapists, Physio Therapists and other health professionals as necessary, to ensure clients receive the very best treatment and care.

Equally, we work very closely with family members to put together an entirely unique person-centred care plan which is regularly reviewed and updated, in order to support their loved one's stay at home for as long as they may wish.
