With nurse oversight and specialist training, our care teams are equipped to handle specialist tasks and treatment.
We believe that people should be empowered to live the lives they choose and self-direct their care where they can.
Our Specialist Care service is there to offer support and reassurance, enabling you to get on with living your life as you wish.
If you're wondering whether the time is right for you or a loved one to organise specialist care, then here are just some of the benefits of myCaringPOD:
Specialist Care is the term used for care that requires nurse oversight because it’s more complex than personal care.
People living with certain illnesses or conditions may require carers with specific expertise or training on specialist equipment to deliver their care.
There are many conditions and illnesses that require a more specialist approach with a nurse directing the complex tasks.
Our Specialist Care service allows you or your loved one to access that care at home.
What does Specialist Care involve?
The nurse leading the care will devise a care plan that is bespoke to the individual and delegate the tasks to fully trained carers to carry them out.
Typically, the care will be given by a team of carers, with the nurse overseeing their work.
Specialist Care is often put in place when people are living with conditions such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy to name but a few.
If somebody has had a stroke, brain or spinal injuries or severe mobility issues, Specialist Care is sometimes required.
There are many different tasks included under the banner of specialist care. Here are some examples:
Using specialist equipment
This is by no means an exhaustive list as much more falls under the remit of Specialist Care.
Each individual will have a care plan specifically tailored to their condition and needs, delivered by a team of kind, dedicated carers.
Can Specialist Care be included with other types of care?
Specialist Care is often part of a more comprehensive care package, which will include Personal Care, and Household Help if needed.
Head over to the dedicated pages to get an overview of what our Personal Care and Household Help services cover.
How do I book Specialist Care?
On the MyCaringPOD platform, we make it as simple as possible to book care and keep track of it.
We have designed the platform to make it easier for people and their loved ones to book, track and give feedback on care.
In doing so, we hope to provide peace of mind to everyone involved, whether they are the person receiving the care or a loved one.
How much does Specialist Care cost?
Specialist Care is bespoke, and the cost of treatment depends on the specific needs of each person.
You can find a guide to our pricing on the Funding page, but our team always discusses specific pricing once the exact care needs are understood.
