Private nursing care in own home

As we get older, it’s common for us to want to stay surrounded by the things we hold dear. As the saying goes, ‘Home is where the heart is’, and this is increasingly true for many people in their twilight years, for which treasured belongings and precious memories become even more sacred.

If you find yourself in a situation where you require additional care, knowing that you have the option to receive private nursing care in your own home may be very reassuring. In particular, if you find yourself living with dementia or Alzheimer’s, having to also deal with a move away from your family home to a traditional residential care environment may be confusing or distressing for both you and your family. Private nursing care in your own home lets you continue to live your life on your terms.

Having a carer come to your home to meet your personal needs, provide support and companionship can have an immensely positive impact on your mental and physical well-being. Staying at home, keeping a beloved pet and being near family and friends in a familiar environment helps to provide a continued quality of life simply not possible if you are forced to move into a traditional nursing care home.

Private nursing care

Maintaining independence

It is hard to quantify the many benefits that come from maintaining as much independence as you can for as long as possible. Even if you need additional support to perform day-to-day functions, it is important to continue to do what you safely can for as long as you can.

This is where private nursing care at home works so well. Not only does it enable you to stay in familiar surroundings, but the private nature of the care means it is bespoke to your individual needs. You will not be expected to slot into a ‘one size fits all’ approach to care. You and your carer will get to know each other very well, meaning that they can provide a service tailor-made to your requirements.

Bespoke personal care

There will be no need to unnecessarily change your home routine and your carer could even take you out shopping or to social gatherings. In fact, whatever you need to make your life more comfortable can be provided by having the right private nursing care in own home - from meal choices through to assistance with personal hygiene and medication.

The very nature of this bespoke level of care means the relationship you develop with your carer is an important one. Care agencies such as Guardian Carers can help you to choose a carer who you get along with and is trained and experienced to assist you with your individual needs. In many instances they may even have similar interests and hobbies, providing welcome company if you feel isolated at home.
