What is complex care?

Complex care is specialist support for someone with a chronic or long-term health condition, who requires extra assistance to manage their symptoms and day-to-day activities of daily living. This type of care differs from general Homecare or domiciliary care because it usually involves medical intervention of some sort and involvement with clinicians and nurses that specialise in that individual’s particular condition. Complex care can include any condition that requires clinical support, such as Parkinson’s, Spinal, Acquired Brain Injuries, Motor Neurone Disease (MND), Muscular Dystrophy, Muscular Sclerosis, Stroke, Low Awareness State, Cerebral Palsy, Guillain Barre Syndrome, or Other Neurological Conditions . It can also be provided if someone requires nursing care as a result of their primary condition, for example, a PEG feeding tube after someone has had a stroke. The aim of complex care at home is to provide support around an individual’s needs and enable them to retain their independence as much as possible.
