NURSING care

WHAT IS NURSING CARE?

Nursing care is for people who require around the clock assistance and support with Nursing and personal living needs. This may include individuals who need intensive rehabilitative care (for example following a stroke), individuals who need peg feeding, individuals with physical disabilities, and individuals with long-term health conditions or who may be approaching the end of life.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NURSING CARE AND A CARE HOME?

Care Homes offer home-style, live in accommodation with 24 hours a day supervised staffing. This is designed to help those who need extra support with their personal care such as dressing, personal hygiene, medication, communication as well as things such as food preparation, laundry and mobility.

Nursing Care also provide 24 hour care with the same support as a Care Home, but with added support and assistance for those who need a Registered Nurse to aid with things such as devising and carrying out care plans, administering treatments such as injections and carryout timely medical interventions when necessary. Nursing Care is for those who need medical care during their stay.

END OF LIFE CARE

Whilst some deaths are sudden, most will be following a stage of chronic illness and over 75% of deaths should be expected. End of Life Care is a specialised segment of nursing care which carefully considers key aspects of a person’s life, such as quality of life considerations, to help the resident live as well as possible until they die and to die with dignity. End of Life Care Nurses are an essential component to ensure the comfort of residents who could be in pain or suffering from symptoms of an array of illnesses. They will help to develop a care plan with the patients and families which takes a 360 approach to ensure the very best end of life for those with life-limiting illnesses.
