General Nursing Care

General Nursing Care is similar to residential care, but with a team of qualified nurses to give 24-hour support to people with medical conditions.

    About General Nursing Care

    Our highly qualified nursing teams are supported by a GP and healthcare practitioners, making sure that residents receive the very best care.

    Whatever their care needs, personalised care plans are created for each individual which not only look at care needs but also help us to get to know the person, their interests, their likes and dislikes, their life stories and preferences so that they can truly feel at home.

    With an emphasis on physical and mental stimulation, it is important of our staff to encourage residents to use their motor and mental skills at every opportunity – through conversation, external stimuli and the development of close and rewarding personal relationships.
