Does your loved one have complex home care needs?
Homecare can be invaluable to those who are struggling to cope around the house or with personal care due to ill health or frailty. It means they can receive the extra help and reassurance they need in the comfort of their own home, giving peace of mind to their loved ones. Homecare also allows a level of companionship, and even friendship, which is an important part of helping the person receiving care to live as well as possible.
However, for those with complex care needs, standard home care might not be enough. At Choice Care we have specially trained carers who can help people with more specific healthcare needs, including chronic conditions, disability or care after surgery. Our specialist carers are trained to deliver comprehensive support to help manage your loved one’s needs, from cognitive and social to physical and clinical, all in the comfort of their home, so they can retain their independence and dignity.
Who needs complex care?
We provide complex care in Blackburn for people with specialist needs, including those with:
Parkinson’s Disease – Parkinson’s is a progressive condition affecting the brain. The main symptoms include stiffness, shaking and a loss of balance, while it can also have psychological impacts such as memory loss.
Acquired brain injuries – the level of severity of a brain injury can vary, and can include physical or intellectual impairment, mobility issues, speech problems and memory loss.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) – this is a neurological condition affecting the body’s central nervous system. Symptoms can include mobility issues, vision problems, numbing, weakness and cognitive impairment.
Stroke recovery – the impact of a stroke can vary, but after-effects can include weakness, balance issues, paralysis, vision and memory loss and depression.
Surgery aftercare – this can include anything from tracheostomy care, following an operation on the windpipe, catheter or stoma care to manage incontinence after surgery and gastrostomy (feeding care).
Why choose Choice Care?
Our homecare service in Blackburn is designed to be flexible no matter what your loved one’s needs may be. Our carers can attend as little or as often as required. And when it comes to complex care, our staff are trained to recognise early signs of changing conditions and how to adapt their care approach accordingly.
Our carers understand the importance of communicating with other relevant healthcare services that may be supporting your loved one, ensuring that care is consistent and minimising disruption to their daily routine.
We also work with leading organisations including East Lancashire Hospice, the Stroke Association, Dementia UK, Parkinson’s UK and the MS Society to share resources and make sure our carers are on top of the latest skills and training.
