You will find us fully supportive and able to assist with the whole aspect of care, including guiding you through the funding application process if required.
Before our service commences, we go through a detailed assessment with you to ascertain the exact level and type of care that is required. Working closely with the NHS services, the hospital and or Social Services, we strive to select a team that is suited to integrate well with your child and their personal environment.
Highly trained staff
All care is overseen by experienced registered nurses. Our team includes neonatal, paediatric nurses, staff registered in learning disabilities, mental health care, nurses to help with ventilators and tracheostomies, syringe drivers, Hickman lines, IVs, PEG feeds, and other complex care support systems. All our staff are trained to look after children suffering from chronic conditions, including palliative patients.
Understanding and empathic
Dealing with sick children of any age can be traumatic, but even more so when they are transitioning from childhood through to young adulthood. We have a number of clients who have made this journey or are going through this journey. We know about the demands that this journey makes on them and their families. And we’re there to help.
As much as possible our goal is to protect and care but also to enable the children to maximise their independence. Where possible, we assist them to take part in social activities, helping them to live as full a life as they can.
Used to working with private patients, Social Services and NHS Continuing Care Teams, we collaborate closely with hospitals and NHS Commissioning Bodies, taking care of all communications and liaison so that you don’t have to. We are also used to dealing with the hospital discharge process and by co-ordinating requirements carefully, we maximise the success of transition from hospital to home. By carrying out constant risk assessments we are always up to date with a child’s needs and wants and our provision of consistently good after-care makes re-admission far less likely.
