Caring for Neurological Disorders

Our Neurological Disorders care includes care for a range of conditions, including but not limited to:

  • Transient Ischaemic Attack (‘TIA’ or mini-stroke) 
  • Stroke 
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Myasthenia Gravis
  • Motor Neurone disease 
  • Progressive Supra-Nuclear Palsy
  • Myalgic Encephalopathy (M.E. or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) 

Over many years OxleyCare has provided long term 24 hour Live-in Care for our clients with these complex neurological disorders. In close cooperation with the client’s family, medical team, District Nursing service and other specialists, we have enabled clients who might otherwise have had prolonged admissions to hospital or other residential care institutions to remain in their own homes for the rest of their lives.

Clients and their families have found this an enormous comfort, with a quality of life far beyond anything they could expect elsewhere. Our aim is to enable and encourage the clients’ abilities while assisting them with things which are more difficult. At all times the clients wishes are paramount. We recognise that it is essential for clients’ well-being and dignity that they should exercise control of as much of their lives as they are able. Each client manifests their condition in completely different ways so we definitely do not have a ‘one-size-fits-all’ attitude to care and treatment.

Many of our carers have a nursing background so these, or other carers with extensive experience, will be deployed to help our clients with neurological disorders. Our training officer will come out to clients’ homes to instruct carers and ensure competence when new equipment or procedures are brought in.
