Chronic & Complex Care
Sensitivity, Compassion and Understanding
As life expectancy increases so too does the incidence of chronic conditions commonly associated with ageing. Chronic diseases are medical conditions that tend to be long-lasting and persistent in their symptoms or development. They include some cancers, heart disease, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases.
Often these conditions don’t exist in isolation and optimal treatment for one condition may interfere with the optimal treatment for another. This is what is referred to as chronic and complex care.
Living with these chronic conditions impacts the physical, emotional and mental well-being of individuals, affecting their relationships and involvement in daily activities. In many cases, however, health outcomes can be improved if these chronic and complex conditions are well managed.
If you’re curious to know more about how Scalabrini can help manage the symptoms of these conditions and provide the highest standard of complex care, our team is standing by to speak to you.
