Continuing health care is available for adults who need extra ongoing support in a setting other than the hospital, this can be provided at home.
Usually those who receive continuing health care are identified as having a ‘primary health need’, this being a pre-existing ongoing physical or mental health need. The main aspect of care to be provided will focus on addressing and supporting the individual’s specific condition outside of hospital.
Continuing health care can be arranged easily by contacting us at Bridgewater Home Care for an initial care consultation. Our Care Specialists will identify the needs and requirements of the individual needing care, prioritising areas where more complex or urgent care is required. By getting to know you it allows us to create a personalised service from the comfort of the home.
At Bridgewater Home Care we provide tailored services to suit each individual’s needs and provide essential ongoing support to family members as and when requirements change, enhancing or reducing the amount of care as needed. As a home care provider we focus on enabling clients to live well from their own familiar surroundings, ensuring they receive the same level of support (if not more) than they would from hospital.
With a focus on quality, we provide ongoing professional development to our Care Specialists, allowing clients and their families to feel confident that they are in excellent hands.
