What Is Nursing Care?

Nursing care is a specific type of care and support that is delivered by qualified and professionally trained nurses.

Designed for people who have more complex needs and require higher levels of care than they would receive from residential care, a nursing care home provides 24-hour personal care for its residents.

This type of care is best suited to people who have a long-term health condition that requires ongoing monitoring and support or those who need long-term care.

With nursing home care, residents receive a special level of care from registered nurses and care assistants which is tailored to their specific needs and health requirements.

People often confuse residential care homes and nursing care homes, but they each offer very different care services.

Most notably, a nursing care home is more medically focused, offering registered nursing services to residents who require more bespoke care.

That being said, nursing care homes also offer many of the same care services as residential care homes, including help getting washed and dressed, medication management, and getting around safely.

What Are The Key Benefits Of Nursing Care?

If you are thinking about using a nursing care home but are not sure if this is the right choice for you or your loved one, it can be beneficial to find out a little bit more about what is on offer.

One of the main reasons that people choose to place a relative in a specialist nursing facility is to gain peace of mind that they are getting the support and care that they need. If your loved one currently struggles with many everyday tasks such as getting dressed, washing, and preparing meals, then a nursing home can help them with all of this as well as their bespoke care needs.

Medication management is also a crucial part of these types of care, with trained nursing staff always on hand to dispense medication and deal with any problems that arise in an efficient and timely manner.

A nursing care home will also ensure that your loved one is safe at all times, with around-the-clock care and equipment that is designed to prevent slips and falls and protect residents from harm.

For families that have previously used an in-home carer or nurse, it is worth mentioning that nursing homes offer much more in the way of social interaction, which can help to keep your loved one physically active and mentally stimulated.

Home fees are also often more expensive than nursing home costs, especially if your relative requires specialist medical care such as dementia care.

If you are struggling to afford either residential care or nursing homes, then there are NHS-funded nursing care facilities that you can explore.

{Ruth B (Resident)}

“We are very impressed with the care my mother has received whilst at Rosebery Manor over the past 2 years. All the staff are friendly, caring and show a lot of respect to all residents and their relatives. Following my mother’s stroke, the staff have quickly and seamless adapted to her new and more intensive level of care and needs without even having to ask. The Dementia unit is very efficiently run by the Dementia manager who maintains very high standards whilst treating all residents as individuals.”

{Caroline (Daughter of Resident)}

“I have lived here since 2017. My first impression was a surprise at the non-institutional and relaxed atmosphere rather like that of a good hotel! But the staff are efficient and caring and create an atmosphere of friendship and community. There are plenty of activities for all tastes. It was lovely to be able to bring my own furniture and indeed I could have brought a dog or a husband! With my poor health, I am confident in the meticulous care taken by the nursing staff.

{Valerie B (Resident)}

“My mother has been living at Pembroke House for a year now. The last few months have been challenging for her, the family and the care team in the home. I would like to say a big thank you to the manager, nurses, care team plus the other members of the team such as reception, housekeeping, and the activities team. I can only say how caring and supportive they have been to mum and the family.”
