As specialists in complex care in the home in the UK, Almond Care has extensive experience in supporting adult and paediatric clients with long-term ventilation needs, both non-invasive and invasive, which may arise as a result of conditions including:
- traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury
- spinal cord injury
- cerebral palsy
- bronchopulmonary dysplasia
- neurological conditions, including muscular dystrophy and multiple sclerosis.
Our priorities are to ensure that the client’s clinical needs are met while ensuring that any disruption caused by ventilator support is minimised as far as possible, so the client can enjoy maximum independence and quality of life.
We work closely with the client and their family to put in place a bespoke care plan that addresses all ongoing ventilator support needs and any other types of care the client may need. This ensures that all clinical requirements are met and that the client’s personal preferences are integrated into the way we care for them.
All our staff are trained in the skills required to deliver long-term ventilation support by carrying out procedures including tracheostomy care, tracheostomy changes, Ambu bagging, chest percussion, tracheal suction and oxygen therapy.
Alongside ventilation and client-specific training, the client’s bespoke care plan ensures that care staff – who are supervised and supported by our clinical nurse specialists – fully understand the client’s condition, needs, preferences and wishes about the way they live their life.
