Over the last 10 years, there has been a major increase for children requiring Complex Care. There has been a 50% increase of individuals requiring Complex Care and there are over 100,000 children and young people that have complex needs.

One of the main reasons for this is because there has been an increase in the number of babies born with complex disabilities.
Caring for a young individual with complex needs can be difficult, particularly because young children are likely to be very needy at a young age, growing up. Young children that have complex needs attend school and it is important the correct support and care are provided around their education.

Here at Secure Healthcare Solutions, we provide complex care for young children, which is person-centered specialist support for young adults that have a long-term health condition, which could be due to a chronic illness, disability, or when discharged from hospital for care or treatment. As a healthcare agency, we understand that a young individual’s care needs are unique, therefore it is vital that we provide tailored care and support to care for these needs.

Complex Care
can be provided within a home environment, as Live-in care which is around-the-clock care in the comfort of your own home. Visiting care is when care is provided on an hourly basis when you require support, it may be for a few hours a day. Respite care is when care is delivered on a short-term basis, as individuals’ loved ones could be busy with other commitments or could be on holiday, also if the individual has been discharged from hospital extra support and care may be required to help you loved ones recover.

Those with a long-term illness or injury will benefit from Complex Care to accommodate towards individual needs. Here at Secure Healthcare Solutions, we have a team of clinical Nurses with years of medical expertise and experience who work collaboratively with case managers to ensure the right level of care is provided

When it comes to diabetes, one of the best ways to live with and manage it, is to research and improve your knowledge. With more knowledge comes a better understanding and recognition of how to improve your quality of life. Diabetes doesn’t just affect a small part of you, it can affect your whole body. There is so much research out there it can get overwhelming so teaching yourself in small chunks is key. Due to this, we have put together a guide of 5 small tips for living with and managing diabetes. These tips are just the basics but it’s always good to have a refresh, especially if you are newly diagnosed. We are also on hand for your diabetes care and if you find yourself asking “where can I find diabetes care near me?” we are on hand to help. 

Knowledge Is Power

Understanding and educating yourself about diabetes can make the process a lot less stressful. Although they are complicated diseases, do not be scared to read up about them and to learn more. Try to listen to podcasts, read books and watch tv shows about it. The more you actively try to learn, the more you will take in and the more you will understand. Many experts will be able to give you tips and tricks to make the process of living with diabetes as straightforward as possible. 

Be Active 

Along with helping with your diabetes, exercise has many other benefits such as reducing your stress levels, increasing your muscle mass and losing weight. Throughout the week, try and set a target of exercising three times. Vary these exercises with strength training to increase your muscle strength and cardio exercises like fast walking or running. There are many apps that you can download which will help you stick to a target or support your exercise journey. If you are at an unhealthy weight, by losing this you will find it easier to manage your diabetes. Your diabetes care team can also help with this.
