Care provided

Luxury nursing homes can provide different kinds of care but most of them are generally catered to the elderly and those suffering with forms of dementia such as Alzheimer`s disease. Care is provided 24 hours a day by registered, qualified nurses and personal assistance is given to those that need it. Personal assistance includes help with feeding and bathing as-well as toileting and grooming. Most homes welcome residents for both long and short term care along with respite care, enabling those that care for relatives or friends at home to have a much deserved break to re-charge the batteries. Residents will also receive the care of other professionals during their stay and will be registered to a GP or can continue to use their own GP if they fall into the local catchment area. Occupational therapists and speech and language therapists to help with aspects of disability and promote independent living and chiropodists, beauticians and hairdressers frequently visit to provide residents with expert grooming.
