Nursing homes offer 24-hour personal support and accommodation of a residential home with the added benefit of specialist care from qualified nurses.
Nursing care may be more suitable if you have an illness or disability that requires frequent complex nursing attention.
A home providing nursing care will generally charge higher fees because it offers specialist care by qualified nurses, although there are contributions available, to those who qualify, from the NHS.
Generally nursing care homes provide:
- Qualified registered nurses
- 24-hour expert care
- Well presented, comfortable accommodation
- A full activities programme
- A freshly-prepared, nutritionally balanced menu
- Laundry and cleaning services
- Long and short-term care options
- Care for those funded by Local Authorities, private funding and NHS
Our Residential Care Homes offer all of the above apart from having Qualified registered nurses on site 24hours a day. We do not currently offer nursing care however we are able to care for people in various instances with specialist help from external professionals. We can provide specialist care and facilities for several illnesses and conditions, such as dementia, for people who have had a stroke, for those who require post-operative or palliative care and other ailments.
Safe Harbor Specialist Care Staff
Our experienced and highly trained carers are set apart by their empathy and their commitment to providing the highest quality care.
All of our carers receive on-going in-house training to ensure that they maintain the highest standards of care.
Our person-centred care approach means that each resident is respected as an individual and treated with dignity. Every person's needs are different, so every resident has a Personal Care Plan which recognises individual preferences and wishes. This plan helps us to tailor the care and support we give to suit each and every resident.
The personal care plan also documents all aspects of medical care the resident needs to ensure consistency and continuity of care.
