Adult with complex needs

NICE Guideline NG216 - Social work with adults experiencing complex needs
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

Adults with complex needs are defined as people aged 18 or over who need a high level of support with many aspects of their daily life, and relying on a range of health and social care services. This may be because of illness, disability, broader life circumstances or a combination of these. Complex needs may be present from birth or develop over the course of a person's life, and may fluctuate.
