Complex Care Services for Children & Young Adults
We want children and young adults, however complex their care needs may be, to enjoy the best possible quality of life in their own homes.
We want them to be able to attend school and college, to have social interaction and experiences, and to participate in activities they enjoy and which are meaningful to them. As a starting point, all our staff are trained to understand normal child development so that, wherever possible, they can include opportunities for play and learning and promote development and communication, whilst also ensuring that essential health and care needs are met.
We can deliver care and support from a few hours a week of extra help or respite in the family home to ’round the clock’ care for children with complex health needs, including nursing care and end of life care. We can also provide support in educational settings or at after-school or community activities where nursing and care staff, who have been expertly trained, are needed to ensure that education and social/leisure activities are able to continue.
In addition to our clinical expertise, we have an excellent training programme for our social care staff to equip them to deliver enabling or befriending services where that is required and we can provide goals-led support for children and young adults who have rehabilitation needs or specific targets and goals that they wish to achieve. This includes specialist transitional planning and support for older children and their families as they approach adulthood.

Complex Care Services for Adults
We also provide safe compassionate care for adults. We understand the importance of continuity and familiarity for our service users and their families.
We can work with them to ensure a smooth transition to adulthood focussing on life skills and enablement where appropriate to maximise the opportunities for independence.
We recognise the value of a rich and varied routine with meaningful activities when opportunities for education cease.
We can continue to provide care and support for existing service users in their adult years and we are happy to accept new referrals from adult service users and their families.
We are able to provide expert care for adults with complex physical needs which include but are not limited to:
• Cerebral palsy
• Spinal cord injury
• Acquired brain injury
• Neurological conditions including motor neurone disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease
• End of life care
We adopt the same highly personalised approach, working closely with families and service users to ensure a care package that is tailored to their requirements with care staff who are properly trained to understand their condition and who are committed delivering excellent care.
