Complex care for families
As the parent or relative of a child with a life-limiting or complex illness, we work with you to provide the support you need to navigate this journey.
We offer what is sometimes called ‘person-centred’ support. This simply means that you are the focus of the sessions and decide what you want to talk about. Sometimes this might be a chat about what’s happening for you and other times it might be deeper. Our therapists are specially trained to guide and help with these conversations, so you get the most out of them.
As a parent or family of a child with a complex or life limiting condition, life is busy, so we’ll discuss with you when and where the best times are for you. For many people, we understand that coming to your home can often be the easiest option. We’ll agree the best solution together.
Gaddum work in partnership with the NHS Community Children’s Nursing teams to collectively provide you with the best level of care.
