Full Time Care:
The term residential care refers to the delivery of personal care within a residential setting. It is for those who can no longer manage living on their own even with assistance from home care agencies or relatives. There are many reasons why residential care may be needed. Residents can expect 24 hour assistance with the following:
The above are just a few types of the help that Gorselands Nursing Home provides. Residents can expect to live in a comfortable environment where they can feel at home, have their meals freshly prepared and laundry and cleaning taken care of. Above all, carers are there not just to deliver personal care, but to support our residents' social and emotional needs, so their lives are enhanced instead of feeling lonely or isolated.
Nursing care is the same in its approach as residential care, with the additional benefit of round-the-clock assistance from a qualified nurse. Those who have spent long periods in hospital are usually assessed as needing nursing care. Each resident who requires our Nursing Care Service benefits from the same in-home facilities available to the Residential residents. The fees charged in nursing homes are usually higher than those in residential homes; however the NHS makes a nominal contribution towards these fees for the nursing aspect of the care provideddentist bournemouth
Respite care is available for individuals who need short term care for between one to four weeks to enable a full time carer to have a rest or holiday, or in the event that the carer themselves becomes ill temporarily. Some care homes have rooms specifically reserved for respite care; other homes only offer this service if there is a vacant room available. Respite care can be provided as a one off stay or for more frequent stays.
Sometimes on discharge from hospital, many people require additional care to start the recovery process. Some individuals or families require the services of a care home and would like to try for a short period to ensure the resident is comfortable before making a longer-term commitment.
Day care provides a homely but stimulating environment for those who enjoy relaxing among friends while receiving the level of care and support they need. This can be a benefit to those finding life a little difficult at home or to provide a welcome break for carers. Daily care can be planned to meet your requirements once a day or once a week depending on your individual needs.
