What is Complex Care?

The definition of Complex Care is “home care for those with long term healthcare needs”. With complex care we give your loved one specialist support to help with chronic illnesses or disabilities, as well as lending a hand with daily life so they can enjoy the freedom and independence of living at home.

How can Abbots Care support my loved one with complex healthcare needs?

How will the Care Workers support with Complex Care?

Our expert, compassionate Care Workers visit as little or as often as you need. When they’re with your loved one, they do what they can to help with personal care, household chores and medical support.

Daily tasks may vary and depend on how often we visit. Our main concern with Complex Care is your loved one’s medical needs. Our Care team create bespoke care plans to make sure all our service users needs are met every day.

Not only do we support with complex medical needs, but we help around the house too. Our Care Workers help with daily chores, like cleaning the house, washing clothes and doing the dishes.
