Community - Continuing Care Service
The service offers community support to children with complex health needs from 0-19 years, with various levels of dependency.
The level of support offered is based around the individual needs of the child and family.
The aim of a support package is to assist mum, dad, families and carers in their role of primary carer for the child/young person. Care is delivered by a highly trained skilled team of Senior Health Care Assistants who have undertaken extensive additional training under the guidance of fully trained paediatric nurses.
The Continuing Care Service works very closely with partner agencies, specifically the Children and Young People’s Department (CYPD)
