At HFH, we understand the unique challenges faced by people with neurological conditions and the specialised complex care they require.
Our complex care plans support individuals with neurological conditions through exceptional nurse-led care, tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients in the comfort of their own homes.
What is a Neurological Condition?
Neurological conditions encompass a wide range of disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves throughout the body. These conditions can have a range of causes, including genetic factors, infections, trauma – including acquired brain injuries – or autoimmune disorders.
Around 1 in 6 people in the UK currently live with a neurological condition. Common neurological conditions include epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, motor neuron disease and stroke. Each one presents unique challenges and requires tailored care to address an individual’s specific needs.
Nurse-Led Neurological Complex Care:
Neurological conditions can present ongoing challenges and require consistent support. At HFH Healthcare, we are dedicated to providing continuing nurse-led care to individuals living with neurological conditions.
We understand that care needs may change over time. That’s why our expert nurses complete regular competency assessments to ensure the highest quality of care throughout a client’s journey. All our healthcare staff receive regular supervision and continuing professional development to make sure they meet the highest of clinical care standards.
Our Complex Care Includes:
Physical Assistance: Many individuals with neurological conditions experience difficulties with mobility, muscle control, or coordination. They may require assistance with daily activities, such as dressing, bathing, eating, and moving around safely.
Medication Management: Neurological conditions often need complex medication regimens to manage symptoms, control seizures, alleviate pain, or slow disease progression. It is crucial to ensure proper administration, dosage, and monitoring for safe and effective care.
Emotional and Psychological Support: Living with a neurological condition can be emotionally challenging for both clients and their families, particularly if the condition is a degenerative one. We understand the importance of the right emotional support to help a client’s overall outlook and wellbeing.
Rehabilitation and Therapy: Many neurological conditions can be improved or managed with specialised rehabilitation and therapy. Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and others can help individuals regain functional abilities and improve their overall quality of life. Our complex carers help support clients in meeting their rehabilitation goals throughout their care and recovery.
At HFH Healthcare, we believe in the importance of involving our clients in the planning of their care. Our neurological complex care plans are designed to be client-centred, taking into consideration not only the clinical side but also the client’s personal choices, lifestyle, aspirations and goals.
We work closely with our clients and their families to develop plans to enable clients to actively participate in their own care.
Our care teams are trained and competent in the clinical tasks and procedures to support an individual’s complex needs, that may be required as a result of their neurological condition.
