What do we do?

A lot of you reading this will be fully aware of what PJ Care do, who we care for and why we do it, but it occurs to me that not everyone knows, and rather than keeping this a secret I thought it might be a good idea to share, particularly with a focus on Peterborough.

So what do we do? We provide specialist care to people with physical illnesses, restricted mobility and challenging behaviours as a result of organic, degenerative or neurological disorders. These include Acquired Brain Injuries, Strokes, Huntington’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and Spinal Cord Injuries, as well as various progressive terminal illnesses and early onset dementias. We also specialise in providing care for complex Frontal Lobe Dementias like Alzheimer’s and Picks Disease.

As you can see this is quite a wide remit and although these conditions individually only affect a few people, collectively they affect a very large percentage of the population. When I say affect this includes knowing someone with one of these conditions.

As medical care and practice improves we are living longer and surviving accidents and illnesses that only a few years ago would have killed us. Unfortunately survival sometimes comes at a cost, that cost can be an ongoing need for continuing care. This is where we come in, often freeing up a blocked hospital bed by providing high quality on-going care designed for an indivual.
