How long can I have complex care for?
For the most part, it will depend on the specific needs of the customer. In general, you can have complex care for as long as you need it, although there are shorter term options, such as Respite Care, which is based around providing you with assistance for a few weeks, particularly if you or your carer need a break. However, if you have recently been in hospital and you require temporary help from a member of the team, to support your recovery, then you will be eligible for the Respite Care service as well.
There are two other types of care that are offered, one of which involves a live-in carer, where you can receive help 24 hours a day. This is called Live-in Care. Or, alternatively, you can have a service called Visiting Care, where you can arrange for a specially trained person to continuously be available whenever you need them.
