The provision of Nursing Care can have a significant impact on a person's quality of life. Whether it involves helping with daily tasks or ensuring the timely administration of medication, Nursing Care services in care homes or nursing homes are specifically designed to provide round-the-clock care for elderly individuals who are unable to live independently due to their health condition. Such care is intended to assist and empower the individual, enabling them to experience a better quality of life every day.
Nursing Care is a specialized form of professional care that is provided and overseen by Registered General Nurses. The nursing staff is available around the clock, 7 days a week, to offer continuous medical and personal support to the individuals under their care.
This type of care is typically sought by people who require intensive rehabilitative care (such as those recovering from a stroke), people with a terminal illness, individuals with severe physical disabilities, mental health issues and those with complex medical conditions.
Nursing costs can be either self-funded or funded through external sources such as NHS funded nursing care where the NHS pays towards your nursing home fees. To determine whether you are eligible for funding, we recommend that you reach out to your local council or local authority to inquire about the funding application process.
Many care homes offer nursing care as one of their specialist services. Before a person's admission into a care home, they will receive a care needs assessment to determine the correct level of nursing care required. Following an assessment, the nursing team will then implement a care plan that will be personalised to the individual's needs and monitored regularly.
A care home offering nursing care has everything a resident with health issues needs to provide them with a better quality of life and for them to live happily. A Care Home with a nursing care unit will have a team of specially trained staff including a registered nurse and qualified care assistants to support every daily need; provide medical care, medication management, regular meals and assist with personal care duties.
Care homes are capable of providing personalized care services to their residents, tailored to their individual needs, which helps to ensure their satisfaction on a daily basis. In addition to taking care of their medical needs, care homes also cater to the emotional and mental well-being of the residents through daily activities.
One of the many benefits of receiving nursing care in a nursing home is the specialised equipment it will have on-site to support residents whilst retaining a homely feel, which is one of the main differences to a hospital setting. Nursing equipment such as profile beds, hoists, nurse call systems, air mattresses, and transfer aids are commonly found on particular floors of care homes to support nursing residents.
In care homes, providing older people with nutritious meals is a top priority. Many care homes have in-house chefs who prepare homemade meals that cater to various dietary requirements and food intolerances, ensuring that everyone can enjoy their meals. Hot and cold meal options are typically available, and care homes often offer soft and easy-to-eat meal options as well. Residents can choose to dine in a communal dining area or the privacy of their own room. The goal of care homes is to ensure that all residents receive regular meals with the right nutrients, which are typically provided free of charge, and overseen by a qualified nurse who can provide assistance if needed.
