Reading time: 3 min.

What is continuous care?

Long-term care is a form of help and support provided to people who have a disability or health condition that requires constant supervision, assistance, and care in daily living needs. This support can be provided by family members, friends, professional carers, or medical professionals depending on the specific situation and needs of the person requiring care.

Constant care is necessary for people with disabilities, the elderly, and the sick: People with various types of disabilities need constant care to ensure their safety, health, and quality of life.

For which persons can permanent care be established?

Permanent care can be established for different categories of persons who have limited capabilities or health conditions that require constant supervision, assistance, and care.

Here are some of the main categories for which continuing care may be established:

  • People with disabilities: These can be adults or children with physical, intellectual, or mental limitations who need help with daily life needs.
  • People with chronic conditions: People who have chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, or chronic respiratory disease, may require ongoing medical supervision and care.
  • People with mental health conditions: People with mental health conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or psychosis may require psychiatric and psychological care and support.
  • People with brain injuries: Traumatic brain injuries from accidents or other accidents can lead to the need for ongoing care and rehabilitation.
  • Seniors: Seniors may need care due to the natural aging process, physical limitations, dementia, or other age-related conditions.
  • Children with special needs: Children with autism, Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, or other special needs may require specialized care and rehabilitation.
  • People after surgery or serious injuries: People who have undergone surgery or serious injuries may need constant medical supervision and assistance during recovery.

Who can establish continuing care?

Establishing continuing care usually requires the intervention of social security authorities, medical professionals or judicial authorities, depending on the legal context of your country.

Here are some of the possible authorities that can establish continuing care:

  • Social services: Departments of social protection or similar bodies in the country may have competence in establishing permanent care for persons with disabilities or other specific needs.
  • Physicians and Medical Professionals: In cases where a person's health condition requires ongoing medical supervision and care, physicians specializing in medical rehabilitation or palliative care can play a key role in establishing ongoing care.
  • Judicial authorities: In some cases, the court may be responsible for establishing permanent care, especially in cases where it is related to the rights of the child or the protection of persons who cannot make decisions for themselves.
  • Family and Guardianship: Family members or individuals who assume guardianship and caregiving responsibilities may be involved in the process of establishing continuing care.
