Complex Live in Care. Brain or Spinal Injury & Neurological Care

Our Sunshine Live in Carers will assist with most neurological complex live in care conditions.

Many people in our society have suffered a brain or spinal injury and need assistance at home in order to live as comfortably as possible, especially following hospital discharge.

One to one caring promotes a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem and can be a very real part of the healing process of the body, emotional and mind systems.

Many people in our society have suffered a brain or spinal injury and need assistance at home in order to live as comfortably as possible; especially following hospital discharge.  Complex Care is needed at this crucial time in a person’s life, following a brain injury and possible surgery. When a usual routine has been disrupted there needs to be a high level of sensitivity and patience and our carers are equipped to help in the very best way.

Sunshine Complex Care Team covers all health and complex social care needs for adults in the community. Our complex care coordination team undertakes routine assessments and can provide packages of care to support people in maintaining their independence.  We will:

  •  Provide a comprehensive, integrated health and social care service to the local community
    •    Deliver coordinated social care, occupational therapy and physiotherapy services
    •    Connect you with other specialised services and agencies, e.g. Housing , District Community Nursing,
    •    Provide a timely reablement service

Nurse led care
Here at Sunshine Care we provide at home nursing-led complex care for anyone who has received a brain or spinal injury, and are here to help and enable during the entire rehabilitation process, whilst ensuring that an individual’s independence is preserved in every way possible.

Our health care assistants are trained to work in person-centred sensitive way and ensure that they listen attentively and adjust the level of care accordingly.

Support for Brain or Spinal Injury
Companionship is vital for someone who has undergone such a trauma in their lives. The disruption of a brain injury can be intense and isolation can occur; especially in situations where people are estranged from the workplace or family members. Recent research in brain injury support has shown that the right level of company boosts the recovery process and the inevitable depression and anxiety can be significantly reduced.

Our complex care staff are selected from a group of enthusiastic caring, friendly people who have been inspired to care for those who have sustained a brain injury under any circumstance. One to one, person-centric caring, enables a person’s confidence and self-esteem and can be a very real part of the healing process of the body and mind system.

Health professionals
As well as working in conjunction with family members and loved ones our nurse led carers keep in touch with G.P’s, social workers and other health care professionals to ensure that the person centred ethos is preserved. It is vitally important in our philosophy of care to ensure that those using our services are kept at the very centre of everything and are not patronised in any way that might threaten their well-being.

People we are helping
Peter is living with brain injury after care at home. He has received live-in care from Sunshine for some years now and is very happy with the service, which enables him to live at home and still keep a degree of independence. He loves to go the pub a couple of times a week and to visit the local gym and attend a computer course. For all of these activities Peter is accompanied by his male live-in carers.

Christopher Reeve and Richard Hammond’s stories have placed spinal injuries at the forefront of our minds over the past few years, and much media attention has raised awareness and charitable concern.

We have been reminded that people sustain injury at any time in their lives and the impact can be tremendous. . Much caring support is required as a person having sustained such an injury recovers equilibrium in their lives and re-establishes their patters as much as is possible. Following hospitalisation and the necessary surgery interventions, much sensitive empathic care is needed to preserve a person’s independence as much as possible.

In some cases the injury is temporary, following a fall and so the care is short term. Encouragement is offered alongside whatever practical help whilst someone manages the recovery process. We are on hand to discuss these situations, and can easily visit you at home or in hospital for an assessment.

 

Complex Live in Care Training

Our live in carers are trained to assist wherever necessary, with hoisting, manoeuvring, personal care etc. for comfort. The skills that they offer help considerably, especially with the sensitive operation of recovering speech and an interest in life.

Ours carers are trained to have the clinical skills required to care and support the person who has a severe disability and who no longer can live independently.  They are taught to work in liaison with the clinical community professionals to achieve realistic outcomes for people with brain or spinal injury debilitating conditions.

In some cases the injury is temporary, following a fall and so the care is short term. Encouragement is offered alongside whatever practical help whilst someone manages the recovery process.

These complex care conditions may have resulted from brain or spinal injuries or stroke.

Other complex care conditions are more degenerative, like Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, motor neuron disease and multiple sclerosis; the result of a continuous process based on degenerative cell changes, affecting nerves, tissues or organs, which increasingly deteriorate over time.

Our complex live-in care team will work closely with the Community Health Care teams and with families to deliver person-centred packages of care and support for people with brain or spinal injury.

Under the direction of the community nursing team our live in carers will support and assist with a number of nursing-led tasks, such as: Cough assist; catheters and convenes; PEG feeds and PEG medication; stoma care; CPap, BiPap and Vpap ventilation; bowel mangement.
