Nursing care includes all of the services available in our care centres, such as accommodation, meals, activities and entertainment, with the addition of qualified nurses available around the clock to provide clinical care and treatment. This type of care is used primarily by older people, and is also useful for adults who are recovering from illness or injury.
Who can utilise our nursing care services?
Our range of nursing care services are at a level of care appropriate for adults and older people who will need access to services that are usually unavailable in lower level facilities.
The decision between these two types of care generally comes down to whether the individual’s condition is expected to require registered nurses to be available at all times.
As such, if the decision is made that access to registered nurses is required, the individual will require placement in a nursing care centre. This is true even if they do not require all or even most of the other services available in such a facility.
Most residents of nursing care centres are older people and they are there for long term care and assistance with the usual issues related to ageing. However, these centres are also used by adults of any age who have experienced an injury or illness and have a debilitating condition as a result.
In this case, it is often referred to as recovery nursing because it is expected to be a relatively short time before the resident is able to return to their regular life outside of a care home.
