The Care Home
24 hour nursing care
Nursing care is for people who need a qualified nursing care team available to them 24 hours a day.
Prior to admission each resident has an assessment in their place of residency, i.e Home or Hospital, to establish their care and social needs. Our approach to nursing care is based on the use of personalized care plans. Drawn up with the individuals, their families and care staff, our care plans will help ensure that each person we look after is treated with respect and that their independence and choice is maximized.
