Nursing care is for elderly residents who have medical conditions that mean simple residential care might not be quite enough, and to provide a positive impact on the life of your loved one, as well as your own. A skilled medical nurse will be on-hand 24/7 to offer one-on-one, personalised care so your loved one has their needs consistently and competently met at any time, day or night.
When is nursing care needed?
Nursing care is often required if your loved one has complex medical needs that may need professional assistance at any time throughout the day. This can include:
- Post-surgery recovery
- Terminal illness
- Respiratory support
- Neurological conditions
- Wound care
Often, these conditions require the knowledge, skills and expertise of a medical professional, which goes beyond the care offered by other care home professionals. Carers will also provide day-to-day care for your loved one but with additional specialist treatments and services undertaken by a nurse.
