Nursing Care At Home
Home nursing care is becoming increasingly popular with families. This type of care might become necessary when an individual’s needs exceed standard personal care requirements (dressing, washing and support with feeding, for example).
Home nursing carers provide personal, nursing and medical assistance to individuals within the comfort of their own home, ensuring you or your loved one can remain in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Nursing care is completely unique to the individual and their requirements. Nursing care at home can be arranged from a one hour visit per day to several visits per day. It’s entirely dependant on the level of care that is required.
This type of care might be an option for individuals who no longer require a hospital stay but still require assistance with nursing requirements, such as dressing wounds or administering injections.
Detailed discussion of needs
Home nursing carers can administer medication, injections and provide other medical treatments such as dressing wounds. They can also help with medical conditions such as Diabetes, Parkinson’s disease or end of life care.
Planning your home nursing
The first step is to organise a care assessment to determine the specific needs of the individual. If you need help get a brochure or call our helpline on 0800 008 7193
