How can Bespoke Health and Social Care help?
BHSC have a proven track record of setting up children’s care packages around the UK. We pride ourselves on recruiting the right team who have the right personality and skills, ensuring we match them to the child’s needs and personality.
Why Bespoke Health and Social Care?Here at BHSC we believe on giving the individual as much or as little control over their care package as they would like. We work with individuals who want us to manage all aspects of their care and we also work with individuals who wish to manage elements of their care themselves.
Case Study — Children
Individual B is a 1 year old baby who was born prematurely at 35 weeks, has trachea-oesophageal fistula repair day 2 of life. They have a tracheostomy, are on a ventilator, and also have a gastro in situ. The family were awarded a package of care by the CCG of 7 nights, each being 11hrs to provide respite for the parents. This package of care had to be in place before the child was discharged from the hospital.
Bespoke recruited a number of highly skilled healthcare assistants, some had nursing qualifications from overseas. The family chose their team who they wanted to support their child.
The carers worked in the hospital alongside the nursing staff, being up skilled on tracheaostomy and gastro care. They were supported by BHSC’s Paediatric Nurses working through competency booklets, from The Royal Brompton. Our nurses made sure that the team of carers would be competent to support the client at home without nursing intervention.
We were able to take the child home in time for Christmas
