Make yourself at home with the care of our expert nurses

Our nursing care is much like our residential care, your loved one is sure to feel at home with our 24/7 support and socialisation with others. However they will also have our team of qualified nurses on hand for any medical issues you or your loved one may have.

What is nursing care?

Nursing care is similar to residential care. The resident is in the same home, with the same options of independence and visits however they have access to 24/7 nursing support. This can be to monitor ongoing illnesses and or to administer medicine. You can rest assured that your loved ones are in safe hands but also made to feel as comfortable as possible in our home. Each resident has a carefully designed care plan with all of their needs so everyone has a personalised plan uniquely for them.

Is nursing care the right choice?

Making the decision to move yourself or your loved one into a care home. However, there comes a point when you or your loved one may be in a position of danger to themselves or others around. There may also come a point in time where your loved one needs additional support that is difficult to help with alone, especially if medicine is needed to be administered.
