Chronic disease and illnesses are persistent conditions that often affect a person’s overall quality of life. Some chronic conditions are degenerative and get worse over time such as osteoarthritis and dementia, others remain fairly steady after diagnosis, whilst others can go through periods of relapse and remission.

Some of the most common chronic diseases/illnesses we provide care for include diabetes, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and asthma. Living with any of these conditions can be extremely challenging for the person affected and their family.

Caring for someone with a long-term disease can be exhausting. Colbrow’s healthcare team can help transform the day-to-day of your loved one, improving their health and wellbeing, and maintaining their independence where able.
