Specialist Domiciliary Care
We provide specialist domiciliary care and support for a range of complex physical health conditions, which includes acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy. We also assist our clients with their daily living activities.
Our care packages are based on individual need, with a minimum duration of one hour per day, extending up to 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. This provision includes Out of Hours support for staff, which can be used to clarify minor queries, or it could be used to assist staff during a client emergency.
Our person-centred and holistic approach means that care provided is client specific and tailored to the individual presentation of each client. We focus on ensuring our clients achieve maximum independence and that their Quality of Life improves.
The clinical services we provide include:
- Respiratory management such as non-invasive ventilation, cough assist and oral suction
- Tracheostomy care including tracheal suction and changes
- Gastrostomy feeding
- Medication management
- Epilepsy management and Buccal Midazolam Administration
- Stoma and Catheter care
- Moving and handling, including hoisting
All support is managed and overseen by our RGN Clinical Lead.
Our Clinical Lead works closely with other Health Care Professionals such as Respiratory Physiotherapists, Dieticians and Occupational Therapists. This ensures that all clients receive detailed individual care planning and input; which is regularly reviewed.
Our service provision ensures that people requiring complex care and support are able to receive this in their own homes. This input helps to support our clients in many aspects of daily living; thus enhancing their Quality of Life.
From a daily living perspective we help clients to:
- Complete domestic tasks
- Monitor food intake and nutrition
- Manage their financial transactions
- Access the community and participate in activities such as shopping, further education, cinema and other general appointments
Our Support Workers attend mandatory training, but also attend training that is specific to the individual needs of our clients. Staff have to be assessed as competent and they receive on-going clinical supervision in all aspects of a person’s care requirements.
