Older Persons Services – Nursing Care
All of Enhanced Care’s residential care homes provide 24 hour Nursing Care in Newcastle, Gateshead and Wardley, Tyne and Wear. This type of nursing care is with varying medical needs and requirements. It could be an individual with Motor Neurone or Parkinson’s Disease, or someone with a physical disability or mental disability that requires the nursing support of fully qualified nurses and medical professionals.
As with all of our services, the Enhanced Care approach respects the individual and a personal nursing care plan is designed based on that persons needs.
Our nursing care services in the North East of England include the following:
24 Hour Care – dedicated nurses who are specially trained to provide tailored medical care. Enhanced Care also have other medical professionals and therapists visiting according to the persons personal nursing care plan.
Specially Adapted Surroundings – all our nursing care homes in Newcastle, Gateshead and throughout the North East have been specially adapted for their purpose. Enhanced Care therefore provides a safe and comfortable environment which helps even our most severely disabled residents, so that they can be as independent as possible. Our spacious bedrooms have disabled access ensuite bathrooms, nurse call buttons, as well as adjustable beds, television and internet connections.
Activity Based Care – as part of our regular assessments, we gain an understanding of our care home residents capabilities and interests. We then offer them an activity timetable based around this knowledge. As part of their nursing care we believe encouraging people to be more active raises self-esteem and greater independence. For example, gentle activities such as learning new arts and crafts, gardening, reading or playing music help our care home residents with their self esteem and give them a greater feeling of independence.
Food and Nutrition – eating good tasty food is an important and sociable part of each day. We ensure all meals are seasonal, freshly cooked. We cater for individual dietary requirements e.g. vegetarian, gluten or lactose free etc. Enhanced Care nursing staff, if necessary, will assist a resident with eating, if they have difficulties.
