Services for children and young people

At Almond Care, we provide specialist complex care at home for children and young people with a wide range of conditions, including:

  • traumatic brain injury and acquired brain injury
  • spinal cord injury
  • cerebral palsy
  • epilepsy
  • bronchopulmonary dysplasia
  • adrenoleukodystrophy
  • autistic spectrum disorders
  • respiratory conditions requiring invasive or non-invasive ventilation
  • tracheostomy care
  • neurological conditions, including muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.

Our complex care services are delivered by trained and qualified carers, overseen by a qualified paediatric nurse, to ensure the highest quality care.

In working with children of all ages and young people, we understand that our support must go beyond simply delivering complex care for challenging conditions or disabilities.

That is why we work closely with families, to help deliver complex care packages that as well as meeting the clinical needs of the child or young person are designed to facilitate quality of life for them and their whole family.

We recognise that childhood and adolescence is a time of adventure, exploration and new opportunities and we are committed to supporting our younger clients to lead fulfilling, rewarding, independent lives as they develop and grow

To support this process, we pay great attention to creating a person-centred care package that respects the needs, wishes and choices of the client and their family and to choose the right carers, who play such an important role in supporting socialising and interests as well as delivering personal and clinical care.

Carers receive client-specific training to enable them to best support the child’s condition and symptoms, their lifestyle and personality, enabling them to deliver clinical support including respiratory management, gastronomy management and physical mobility as well as behavioural and emotional care.
