Around 15 million people in the UK have complex care needs, meaning that they require long term healthcare.
If you have complex care needs due to a chronic illness, disability, or following on from hospital care or treatment- our carers can help you to regain control in your life.
We know that finding help can be a complicated affair and that every person has different requirements when it comes to the care they need. This is even more evident when you have a long term medical condition, or more than one condition co-existing at the same time.
