Nursing Care is the type of care given to older people who find it increasingly difficult to live their everyday lives without the assistance of another person. Whether a person is struggling to communicate or move their body due to a health condition, or an individual is living with mental health issues or a physical disability, nursing care is provided by highly skilled and trained nurses and care assistants in a purpose-built nursing home and can often be the best solution.
When it comes to nursing care support, there are lots of elements that make delivering high-quality levels of care to residents an important and rewarding process. Nursing care support encompasses a variety of daily tasks, such as assisting with administering medication or helping residents maintain a high level of personal hygiene with the support of high-tech nursing equipment.
In some circumstances, residents might need help when it comes to feeding themselves, using the bathroom, or even moving around the home on their own. It is best to choose a residential care home with nursing care options if it is deemed that a person may eventually need nursing care due to medical concerns. This way, they won't have to worry and stress about moving to another care home again later down the line.
Nursing care is important for a variety of reasons. For many people, whether a care home offers nursing care services plays a huge factor in whether or not they decide to move in. Nursing care is such a varied service, with many individuals having different medical needs therefore requiring a different level of care provided by a team of registered nurses.
It’s so important that every single resident of a care home feels like their needs are valued and respected. Without nursing care, many nursing home or care home residents would be left without the tools and help they need to lead a better, healthier, and more fulfilled life.
Nursing care fees are typically the highest among all care types, as nursing care will require a high level of care for individuals with complex medical conditions, severe physical disabilities, a learning disability and other high dependency needs.
If a person is self funding their care home fees, they will still receive benefits such as attendance allowance and your pensions. Nursing care is usually paid on a weekly basis which includes all costs associated with accommodation, meals, personal care as well as medical care and treatment provided by a registered nurse and qualified care assistants.
In some circumstances, an individual may be eligible for financial help from the local council, known as local authority funding which is determined by a financial assessment that looks at a person's finances and assets to see if they are above or below a certain threshold. Others may be eligible for NHS-funded nursing care known as Complex Clinical Care. This is when funding is provided by the NHS for those with complex health needs which consists of multiple needs assessments carried out by healthcare professionals.
