The benefits of nursing care
Below are some of the biggest benefits of nursing care which means your loved one can continue to retain as much of their independence and dignity as possible.
Expert care is available 24/7
If your loved one has a complex medical condition or requires regular professional care, a nursing home has trained and experienced nurses on hand and in-house 24/7. They are there to help with anything your loved one may need and are available to respond in the event of an emergency.
Optimum safety and security
Because trained nurses are available all day, every day, it ensures the safety and security of every resident at all times.
Reliable medication management
Nursing staff can reliably monitor residents to make sure medication is taken in the right doses and at the right time.
Nursing homes are home to many like-minded people, from other residents to the dedicated staff. There is always someone available for a chat, play games with or ask for help, which means your loved one never has to feel alone or isolated.
Regular stimulation and activities
Many nursing homes, including ourselves at Ashberry Care Homes, have in-house activity coordinators to run a wide variety of activities, exercises, day trips, visitors, entertainers and more. That means there never has to be a dull day, which keeps residents stimulated, moving and engaged.
Fewer stressors and responsibilities
With fewer responsibilities, nursing home residents can focus on doing more of what they enjoy, whether it is a spot of gardening, a bit of reading, or even some singing and dancing. For some familiarity, residents are more than welcome to help with washing or other light chores if they wish.
Freshly prepared meals and snacks
A team of in-house chefs creates meal plans based on residents’ favourites, ensuring meals are prepared fresh each day. With a focus on nutrition and taste, meal times are never dull. Extra efforts are always made to cater to specific dietary requirements, including allergies, intolerances and dysphagia.
Ample opportunities for comfort and relaxation
In a nursing home, comfort is key. Many of our nursing homes have a variety of places for residents to unwind, such as different lounges, conservatories, sun terraces, libraries, gardens and more.
Respite for you
Caring for a loved one can be emotionally and physically draining. When they are provided with nursing care, it allows you to protect your own wellbeing too.
Peace of mind for you and other relatives
With your loved one receiving fabulous care from a team of experienced staff, you do not need to worry about how they are doing. At Ashberry Care Homes, we update your loved one’s records using a Care Control system, so you know exactly what type of care they are receiving.
