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.
He would be in good hands
“My father suffers from Huntington Disease and his speech has progressively become more and more impaired, to the point that I can hardly understand him. I was impressed to see how the office staff talked to him on the day of his first assessment. No other agency before has shown this kind of respect for him. I finally felt relieved to see he would be in good hands.”
I am very happy with them
“Since I was a child, my learning disabilities have always represented a challenge and now that I am an old lady, I still struggle with the simplest tasks of my daily routine. This is why my carers are so essential to me. They don’t only help me a lot but they also teach me to help myself. I am very happy with them because they never patronise me, but always involve me in the planning of my care.”
