Nursing Care is a level of care provided to individuals who require intensive rehabilitative care, those with physical disabilities and people who have long-term health issues. No matter whether it’s in the middle of the night or during the day, residents have access to Nursing Care at all times. This means 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be in a residential or an at-home environment.
In a care home, this type of support provides residents with professional and personal care, whilst encouraging them to maintain their independence. 24/7 care helps residents with their everyday struggles and provides an extra helping hand in a supportive, caring environment. Many care homes work closely with their residents and their loved ones to create a bespoke and detailed care plan as well as being appointed their very own key worker to ensure consistency of care.
Residents that require 24/7 nursing care in a care home, will be assisted with meal preparation, personal care, and many social activities. Residents will get to see the same faces every day, providing them comfort and security. With around-the-clock nursing care, you will know exactly who is taking care of you or your loved one at all times.
One of the biggest benefits to those that require nursing care is that the support is there for you 24 hours a day. Having nurses readily available in this way means prompt and attentive care, day or night.
One of the biggest risks of not having access to nursing care at all times for those over 65’s is the increase in falls. ⅓ of people aged 55 and over fall each year in the UK, which often leads to serious injuries. Having a key nurse dedicate their time to attending to a resident can put all of these woes and worries to rest.
Many individuals that require nursing care can find themselves shut away struggling to carry on doing what they love with very limited support and independence. Having 24/7 access to nursing care in a residential home offers the support and independence that individuals deserve.
Many care facilities such as Springvale Care Home have a wide range of activities and facilities to offer residents in order to help maintain their independence and to carry on doing what they love with on-site support at all times.
Having 24/7 care can help individuals retain their independence, by choosing when they would like to eat, what they would like to eat, contributing to day-to-day tasks and household jobs, as well as access a wide range of medical services that can be attended to independently or with the assistance of a team member.
Many care facilities often provide their residents requiring care of this level with tailored care plans. It is important for residents and their loved ones to know exactly how nursing care will be provided. Every resident in a care home who requires 24/7 nursing care should have their own personalised care plan which will outline exactly what care is needed, and how it is individualised so that they can get the best and most appropriate care for them.
One of the main benefits of receiving nursing care in a residential home is receiving nutritional meals. There is nothing more important for residents than them maintaining a healthy diet to support their body. Nursing care ensures residents eat delicious home-cooked meals at a time that suits their schedule.
A resident’s diet plays a major role in their recovery and quality of life. Healthcare professionals in a care home help to monitor not only diets but also the medications of residents.
When receiving 24/7 nursing care you can be sure that you will no longer have to live with the worries of taking your medication on time. Many residents often miss or take too much of their medication and it can sometimes get too confusing. In a care home, staff can take care of this for them and administer your loved one's medication to ensure they take it properly and are on a road to recovery.
There are many other benefits to receiving 24/7 nursing care, such as companionship, receiving constant specialist care, regular activities to help benefit the mind and body, living in a clean and comfortable environment, and many more. At Springvale Care Home our residents have access to 24/7 Nursing Care, so no matter how much care they need they and their loved ones can be sure that they will receive it properly.
