Different Types of Care.
Whether you’re searching for a care home for yourself or a loved one, it’s important to understand the type of care required. This process can be quite a stressful time, which is why finding the perfect care home helps the transition go as smoothly as possible.
In this post, we’ll take a closer look at the types of care home on offer and the different care they can provide.
One of the most common types of care home is residential care. These homes provide accommodation and personal care such as washing, dressing and taking medication.
Although there is personal assistance, it’s important you choose a home that prioritises the guest’s safety alongside their independence. Any reputable residential care home will also try to create a welcoming environment, where residents feel at home and can enjoy a range of activities and excursions.
Nursing care homes provide personal care with the assistance of qualified nurses. Alongside regular care duties, residents with specialist medical needs have around the clock nursing support. This gives loved ones complete peace of mind that residents are in the safest possible hands.
When searching for the right nursing care home, ensure you choose one which has the best facilities and qualified, expert carers to suit your needs.
It’s always difficult when a loved one is diagnosed with dementia. Their requirements go beyond the remit of traditional residential or nursing care homes. Dementia care homes offer a tailored dementia-friendly environment with physical and emotional support.
To provide personal and medical care, high-quality dementia care homes will have specialist trained staff and state of the art facilities. Make sure you pick a care home that has the experience and the expertise to provide a tailored dementia care plan.
Respite & Convalescent Care
When caring for a family member or loved one it can be difficult to balance your own time with caring duties. Respite homes offer carers a well-deserved break. Whether it’s for a few hours, an overnight stay or even a week, respite care can be a mixture of both residential and nursing support.
Convalescent care also helps residents who are recovering from illness or surgery, requiring temporary nursing or residential care. Both residents and family can rest easy in the knowledge they’ll get both the medical and practical support they need.
