Newcross Healthcare in Chester has launched a ‘Complex Care in-the-home’ service to meet growing local demand.
The new service will also be based at the Chester hub but will cover the broader North West region.
It is dedicated to providing care and support for people with complex needs in their own homes.
Specialist nursing staff support people with conditions such as learning disabilities, home ventilation management, end of life care, spinal injury and head injury rehabilitation.
‘We have seen a marked increase in the need for care in the home on a local level, particularly for paediatric services,’ said complex care manager, Janette Carr.
‘We are receiving enquiries from local authorities, case management firms and directly from families. With a strong workforce in the area, we can assign the right people with the right skills, personality and interests to each package of care to provide the best possible service.’
‘Thanks to our investment in learning and development resources, we are also able to efficiently train staff in specialist clinical areas such as tracheostomy care, allowing us to support people with complex health or social care needs,’ she added.
‘Being able to provide this essential service allows people to continue to live within the comforts of their own home for longer, rather than early admittance into a care home or long stays in other care settings.’
