Continuing Healthcare

Some people have very complex health needs and so may need specialist care, regular treatment or other support for a long period of time. This long term care for people over the age of 18 years is called continuing healthcare, a service as a result of illness, substance misuse, frailty, accident or disability. Home Instead provide a high quality package of care and support that is there to meet assessed needs, including physical, mental health and personal care needs.

The care is arranged by the NHS, but can be provided by other organisations. Home Instead provide high quality care in a variety of settings, including, a residential care home, a nursing home, a hospice or in someone’s own home. In some cases, the choice of living environment may be restricted in order to meet complex or intensive medical health needs.
