Long Term Condition Management
Long term conditions (LTCs) are defined on the Department of Health website as “those conditions that cannot, at present, be cured, but can be controlled by medication and other therapies. The life of a person with a LTC is forever altered - there is no return to ‘normal’.”
Among the most common of these conditions are asthma, diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, heart failure, severe mental health conditions and epilepsy. CityCare runs a number of projects that deliver care, advice and support for people with long term conditions and can signpost people to private, public and third sector organisations where they can access other practical help and support to enable them to avoid hospital admissions and self-manage their conditions at home where possible.
Palliative care and end of life care is also available enabling people and their families to make informed choices and access the support they need.
