Types of Care
There are a number of different care centres offering a variety of care services. Here you will find a summary of the types of care we provide.
Continuing care is care provided over an extended period of time to meet physical or mental health needs that have arisen as a result of disability, an accident or illness. Care centres provide accommodation, meals and personal care, entertainment and activities, but also have qualified nurses in constant attendance. Many also provide more specialist Dementia care.
Dementia is the most common mental infirmity in older people, such as Alzheimer's Disease. Depending on the level of Dementia, care may be available in Residential or Nursing Care Centres. There are also specialist units offering nursing or residential care with experienced staff and adapted facilities.
Our clients with Dementia enjoy a life of quality and when possible participate in the everyday life of our centres. We provide Dementia services to older people and those with working age Dementia with a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, or other forms of cognitive impairment, who display non-aggressive characteristics and moderate to high confusion. Our Dementia facilities are safe with keypad entry codes and we have full-time lifestyle coordinators who attend Alzheimer's Society training. Our Dementia care services follow the Alzheimer's Society, Bradford & Sterling University guidelines.
This is unique and specialist care to ensure the increasing number of patients with Neuro based needs can enjoy a meaningful lifestyle, while accessing the range of rehabilitation services required on an ongoing basis, to maximise their further recovery and to enable them to lead as independent a lifestyle as possible. Person-centred care, together with the appropriate equipment, facilities and trained personnel, is the key to achieving this. We encourage clients to exercise choice and control in all they do. Forest Neuro services provide a complete range of therapy services for the management of complex care needs. Our clinical team include registered nurses, NVQ-qualified care assistants, physiotherapists, occupational therapist, speech and language therapist and clinical psychologists.
Nursing care centres provide accommodation, meals and personal care, entertainment and activities, but also have qualified nurses in constant attendance. Many also provide more specialist Dementia care. A nursing care centre will generally charge higher fees than a residential care centre because it offers care by qualified nurses, although the NHS now makes a contribution to nursing care fees (see Fees & Funding). The minimum age for admission is normally 65, although you should check with individual centres as some may accept younger clients.
Palliative and Terminal Care
This is active, compassionate care of the chronically and terminally ill, directed towards improving the quality of life. Palliative care particularly focuses on the control of pain and symptoms. These specialist approaches include the individual, the family, carers and friends, and extend to bereavement and grief.
This is generally short term care for people recovering from illness or an operation. Most nursing care centres offer both convalescent and postoperative care, while residential care centres will usually only offer convalescent care.
Residential care centres provide accommodation, meals, entertainment, activities and personal care, such as help with bathing and dressing, for those who are finding it difficult to cope at home, or who need more help than their carers are able to provide. Residential care centres do not generally provide nursing care for medical conditions but often do cater for Dementia clients. The minimum age for admission is normally 65, although some may accept younger residents.
Respite care is short-term care, perhaps for a week or two, so that carers can have a break or if a carer is unavailable for a while. Some care centres such as ours will have rooms set aside for respite stays, others will only offer it if there is a room vacant. Many clients often convert from being a short term respite client into being a permanent long term resident if their experience is pleasant and if funding is available.
Some care centres offer specialist care for conditions such as Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Disease, MS, brain injury, challenging behaviour or for young physically disabled people, Cancer related, with specially-trained staff and adapted facilities.
This is care specifically given to clients who have suffered Strokes and require specialist attention, specifically including physiotherapy and extra assistance. These will almost always be nursing care centres.
Young Physically Disabled
This is generally nursing care for people with physical disabilities who are unable to live in their own homes. It may be within a care centre for older people, a specialist care centre for YPD residents, or a unit attached to a care centre. Each centre will be registered for different age groups, so you should check with the individual centre. Please note that 'young' may refer to any age from 18 up to the age of 65, to distinguish it from care for older people.
