When is nursing care necessary?
If a loved one has a medical condition that requires 24-hour care that cannot be provided at home, then a nursing home may be the ideal place for them. Nursing care can be the best place for individuals with complex medical conditions, as our nurses are trained to recognise signs and symptoms of illnesses. This ensures that changes in health are picked up quickly, and a doctor can be called if necessary. Barchester’s nursing homes offer individuals the security of nursing care professionals, whilst maintaining their own independence.
If your loved one only requires assistance with daily living activities, they may be better suited to one of our residential care homes. Alternatively, if they require more support, they may be better suited to our dementia care facilities.
