care management and provision

Care Management: 

It differs from Case management as this role deals with the ‘care aspect’ and enables specific nursing care and clinical input to be operationally managed on a daily and continuous basis to establish continuity of care management for the client and their family. We are registered by the Care Quality Commission which means that we can manage and supervise nursing staff and domiciliary care staff in line with current legislation from the Care Quality Commission.

We provide individual care programmes tailored to meet the client’s specific needs. This may be clinical nursing and/or care support enabling children and young adults with complex health problems to be managed at home. These children, young people and their families will need special nursing support and/or care due to:

  • Complex conditions
  • Chronic and severe conditions
  • All life limiting conditions
  • Progressive conditions
  • Children in need of end of life care

We also facilitate specialist advice on the provision and management of highly specialised equipment e.g. specialist beds, wheelchairs etc.

All our care programmes are managed by qualified staff who have experience working with children/young adults with complex care conditions in the home and community setting. It is essential to empower the client to maintain the focus of care. Community Outreach Consultancy provides a care management system so that good communications and feedback are established to facilitate good relationships with family and staff.

The Care Team are there to deliver care in a manner to suit the individual lifestyle of the client and their family and support as needed. It is important not to make the home a hospital and allow time for the family to come to terms with the situation however stressful it may be. We assist the client to set up the care regime:

  • Detailed care and support plans working closely with other professionals to ensure the client reaches their optimum goals

  • The managed care service allows and enables qualified supervision, management and clinical governance of care staff by qualified trained staff in line with Nursing and Midwifery guidelines
  • Ensures safe care delivery as the care staff have completed appropriate training and undergone competency checks
