Medical Illness Care


Medical Illness Care is designed for people coping with a short or long term medical illness. A medical illness diagnoses can be a difficult and challenging time for you and your family. The complexities of treating a medical illness can provide challenges to independent living.

If you receive a medical illness diagnoses advanced care planning ensures that you are aware of your options and the opportunities available to you. It also allows you time to discuss your wishes and preferences for your care with your loved ones. Including residential care as an option can offer an additional support tier when coping with such a medical illness.

You may choose from a range of long stay, short stay or intermittent care options. Long stay care will provide you with comprehensive nursing care including medication management and access to a panel of specialist and therapeutic care services. Short stay care can provide convalescence, allowing you time to recuperate; or respite care, should you or your carers need a helping hand or short break.
