Long Term Conditions
We have experienced nurses and health care assistants who are specially trained to support people suffering from dementia and have years of experience handling complex and challenging mental health conditions. As part of care, we conduct regular risk assessments to gauge mental capacity and health.
A long‑term condition sometimes referred to as a “chronic condition” is one that generally lasts a year or longer and impacts a person’s life. Examples include dementia, arthritis, asthma, cancer, dementia, diabetes, heart disease, mental health conditions, and stroke.
We work closely together with GPs and other community health professionals in providing care for people with social care needs and multiple long‑term conditions to deliver safe, high‑quality services that promote independence, choice, and control. We actively support their participation in social and leisure activities considering their state-of-health, priorities, and preferences in our care plans. From our experience, this has had a positive impact on their quality of life and improves their mental state of health. Several authoritative studies have shown that people with long term conditions are significantly more at risk from suffering mental ill-health and depression.
Professional and Caring
“Both of us found all the carers to be professional and caring, words cannot explain how thankful we both are for the caring way our mother was treated and the advice given to us about Mum. Thank You.”

“Thank you so much for your fantastic care and kindness looking after R. Your team and agency are truly a one off and we would not have been able to manage without you all. SD Care truly sets the bar high and not only has there never been a missed visit in 2 years but also my mother has always felt genuinely cared for.”
