Complex care


Brampton Complex Care Unit looks after residents with a variety of complex care needs.

At Brampton, we provide a service for people that require continuing, medically complex, and specialized care to both young and old, sometimes over extended periods of time. Whereas complex care can result in extended hospital stays in acute hospitals, medically fragile, and sometimes largely independent people, cannot be discharged without adequate community support that has the capacity to meet their care needs.

Brampton can provide the required level of care to those who have long-term illnesses or disabilities typically requiring skilled, best practice and technology-based care not available at home, which is provided by a skilled Nursing team and a specialist multidisciplinary team.

Our team works closely with the person and their family/support network to develop person centred and rights-based care plans

This ensures that the goals of the person are at the centre of all we do, and enhance the quality of life for each individual. We recognise that the persons’ needs can change over time, sometimes with emotional highs and lows; our team are patient and compassionate, and are there to support the person and their family every step of the way.

Complex care can be:

  • Short-term low intensity rehabilitation and nursing care (such as wound care)
  • Long term complex and nursing care is provided following a comprehensive multi-disciplinary team assessment, and includes people that may have tracheostomies, require PEG feeding with other complex medical needs, complex seating and position management, spasticity management, ongoing speech and swallow assessment and treatment, prolonged disorders of consciousness (PDOC).
