Complex care is specialist support for someone with a chronic or long term health condition, who requires extra assistance to manage their symptoms and day-to-day activities. Complex care can include any condition that requires clinical support such as Parkinson’s , acquired brain injuries (ABI) or a neurological condition. Complex care can also be referred to as long-term care or continuing care.
At Curant Care we support individuals with complex care who have substantial and ongoing health care needs. These can be as a result of chronic illness, disabilities or following hospital treatment.
Depending on your or your loved one’s condition, complex care can accommodate essentially any aspect of day-to-day life. Our complex care services aim to relieve as much stress as possible. Our compassionate care workers can assist with everything from providing assistance with personal care tasks, pain management, eating and drinking, monitoring pressure care, continence care, or just being there for reassurance and companionship.
We believe that complex care should be available within the familiar environment of your or your loved one’s own home, and so if it’s a viable option we will endeavour to do everything within our power to make your experience is as stress free as possible.
Most importantly, complex care involves tailoring your care and support plan around you or your loved one, establishing that their life doesn’t revolve around their condition or illness but around their life as a person. Managing pain, alleviating stressful symptoms and being there at each step of the process ensures that you or your loved one is treated with both dignity and respect.
Complex care is a person-centered approach to address the needs of people whose combinations of medical, behavioral health and social challenges result in extreme patterns and needs of health and social care.
Individuals who have either multiple complex medical conditions, multiple detrimental social needs, or a combination of both which negatively impact on a individuals day to day life or healthcare management.
Individuals who need extra care and support due to complex medical issues that are often at times compounded by social, economic, environmental and behavioral factors.
Those living with conditions:
Our Services are built around the individual receiving care and support. Where nursing and clinical care is required services are overseen by a clinician and all care and support plans including medication management is signed off by this clinician. Services are monitored and reviewed regularly ensuring care workers competencies are signed off. Any training required is provided on a 1:1 basis either directly on site with the individual or in a classroom setting.
Hospitals, hospices and care homes can be daunting environments for those experiencing or recovering or living with such complex needs. This is especially true if there’s a possibility of spending a long period in such environments. However, Complex Care offers the familiar space of their own home and will undoubtedly be a much more comforting notion.
Being able to live in a familiar setting, visited by friends, family and well-trained care workers is arguably much more settling and risk-free than having to adjust to and settle into a completely new environment, and the stress-relieving alternative of being comfortable at home is sure to not only improve a loved one’s quality of life but potentially elongate their lifespan as a whole.
Should their condition allow complex care at home our care workers will be able to provide everything a loved one needs.
Complex care requires the care workers to be proficient in an array of specific caring methods, which can be learnt and taught at our training centres or 1:1 in an individuals home, learning how to support the specific individual. For the individual and their family, it can be challenging to find care workers with the experience needed for individual complex care needs.
The needs of individuals dictate the type of complex care a care worker needs to provide and therefore the type of training they need to undertake.
This is important for two reasons. Firstly, the care worker needs to be proficient in the complex care they are providing, to avoid any incidences, which could lead to the inadvertent harm of the patient.
Secondly, by acquiring the knowledge to treat a complex care patient, the care worker knows how to help the individual lead independent, active, and fulfilled lives
As well as providing complex care, care workers should also consider facilitating individuals to lead an independent, active, and fulfilled life whenever possible.
