For some clients with long-term medical conditions or disabilities, more demanding clinical needs, specialist care is needed and this is normally delivered by trained care workers or in some cases nurses, helping you to receive treatment in your own home, instead of in a residence, keeping one in the familiarity and comfort of their own and considerable cost savings.
Our care workers have been part of multiple-disciplinary teams looking after clients with conditions such as:
- intake via peg feed
- tracheostomy care
- stoma care
- acquired brain injury
- spinal chord injury
- debilitating conditions such as MS, Parkinson’s etc.
Certain tasks must be carried out by a nurse or a specifically-trained care worker. These include:
- giving injections
- applying dressing to wounds
- administering suppositories and performing evacuations.
