Our Approach to Supporting Children and Young People
Providing care and support for children and young people can be complex as wider support is often required for their family, or loved ones. Young people who are over 18 may already be living independently and require support both at home, escorting to further education, in the community and at work.
Prestige Nursing + Care support and home care services are designed to be unique to the requirements of the individual child or young person and provide wider support for families. Our support and care plans are carefully considered with your GP, community health teams, local authority teams, schools, colleges and a workplace, if applicable, and comply with the Common Assessment Framework process. This process protects children and young people up to the age of 19 (or 24 if a young person with a disability) to be safe and protected and able to enjoy life, achieve independence and be socially active in their community. We support fully the Every Child Matters initiative.
We will help and advise you without obligation on the types of support packages that are available and how we can support your child, or loved one’s needs in the most practical and affordable way from respite care, specialist nursing care to personal care and companionship at home.
