Nursing Care is designed to deliver around-the-clock medical assistance and support daily living requirements. People who require extensive rehabilitation care (following a stroke, for example), people who require peg feeding, people with physical limitations and people with chronic health concerns use this form of care.
This type of care is provided by qualified Registered Nurses and Nurse practitioners who take on a host of responsibilities, including administering medication, contributing to a patient's plan of care, collaborating with doctors and also ensuring a continuum of care is achieved.
Nursing Care is routinely offered in hospitals, care homes and hospices, however 24-hour live in Nursing Care can be provided at a persons home. Nursing Care involves clinical care that can allow people with complex conditions and care needs to be safely supported so while it is possible for this care to be provided at home, the carer and environment need to be suitable to facilitate all medical and wellbeing needs.
Receiving Nursing Care in a registered Care Home comes with an abundance of benefits, including:
Not only are care homes able to provide a sense of community and allow residents to live fulfilled lives within a safe environment, but they also offer standards of care that simply cannot always be achieved in their home environments.
A care home will be fully equipped and provide specialised equipment to ensure safety of residents and support day-to-day mobility. Professional staff will also be on hand, day and night, to also help assist with mobility.
A care home will present residents with a varied and accessible activities programme that has been designed to motivate and engage all residents, regardless of ability. Attending and partaking in a variety of activities presents social opportunities as well as a number of cognitive, physical and wellbeing benefits.
A carefully curated Activities Programmes and fully equipped home provides residents with all they need to be able to pursue hobbies as well as explore new ones.
Professional health care staff are available to help and assist residents at any time of the day or night. With nurse call buttons fitted in residents rooms, assistance is only ever a quick button-press away.
Care homes encourage independence and support residents day-to-day. Support covers medical care, which frees residents to focus on living life as independently as they desire.
A thorough care plan will be personalised and cover a residents physical, mental, medical and wellbeing needs. As care needs change over time, the plan will be adjusted and evolve in line with changing care requirements.
