Long-Term Conditions

 

1. Care for those with Long-Term Conditions

Often, people with long-term conditions (LTC) may need someone with them 24 hours a day in case an intervention, for medical or for safety reasons, is required. We recognise that LTC's affect people differently, so it is important that care is adapted to suit the needs of the individual. Below of some examples of LTC's that we support:-
