For Cerebral Palsy care, nursing services are available on a domiciliary, homecare basis through nursing agency Ambition 24Direct.
It is estimated that as many as 1 in every 400 children may have cerebral palsy, which means nearly 2,000 babies, from all social backgrounds and ethnic groups, are diagnosed every year. Ambition 24Direct can help with all the nursing support and care needed - whether the patient requires the expertise of a qualified nurse or just an extra pair of hands to assist with personal care and domestic tasks.
Children’s services support high standards of nursing and personal care in a domestic setting, in the child’s own home, surrounded by family and friends. Often this enables early discharge from hospital and may be a helpful alternative to residential care In addition to Cerebral Palsy care, Ambition 24Direct has experience in meeting the medical staffing needs of children with a range of challenges such as autistic spectrum; brain injuries; challenging behaviour; learning difficulties; sensory impairment; spinal injuries; substance abuse; terminal illness and physical disabilities. Ambition 24Direct offers the reassurance of professional private nursing or home care, overnight if necessary, just when it is wanted.
Nurses and healthcare assistants are qualified and selected to ensure the highest standards of quality care provision for private nursing. The agency can also work in close partnership with Local Authorities, Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) and Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) for complex care and other needs.
