Spinal, neuro and complex nursing care
Referrers and clinicians appreciate our unique ability to care safely for specialist and complex needs in a homely residential environment. Our trained nurses have honed skills to reduce hospitalisation. We also undertake tracheostomy tube change, catheter change and peg change. Services at Moor Park House provide an important and uplifting part of the care and whole-life pathways for assessed patients living with some physical impairment resulting from long-term neurological conditions.
Spinal injury care
Our knowledgeable and dedicated team of nurses and care staff offer care to individuals who suffer with a spinal injury.
In April 2015 we were awarded a contract to provide three beds as part of a 'step-down' process for persons with a spinal injury that had been looked after in the North-West Spinal Injury Unit (SIU) at Southport Hospital. Although we no longer provide the ‘step down’ bed contract, we do work closely with the staff at SIU to provide short and long term placements for those patients ready to move to a community setting.
Our staff receive Spinal Care Training as part of their induction process and receive regular refresher sessions, to ensure that the care we provide allows the resident to retain control and self-esteem, and the care team to competently work within the persons tailored care requirements.
Care is delivered as part of a rehabilitation schedule that is tailored to suit the individual requirements, and this flexibility is essential when it comes to effective management of a person’s complex needs prior to discharge. Special attention is paid to helping both service users and their families and friends to manage expectations as they move onto new chapters in their lives.
Progressive neurological conditions
At Moor Park House we offer care provision to people with neurological conditions, which leave them with complex nursing needs. This will typically include requiring medium to long term care as part of their clinical care pathway and watchful maintenance and rehabilitation of their capabilities.
Our experienced team provide continuing and respite care for people with a neuro-disability, that are affected by a physical deterioration in their nervous system, affecting movement and brain functioning. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with a number of neuro-disabilities, including Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and Huntington’s disease.
