Nursing Care

What does private nursing home care consist of?

Nursing care for the elderly allows you or your loved one to remain in your home, and live as independently as possible for as long as possible. Nursing care at home is the perfect balance of assisted care while living in the comfort of your own home. Your carer will have extensive experience and will be able to help you with any task required.

Here at Guardian carers we understand each household is unique and every individual has different needs and requirements, which is why we offer a wide range of nursing care at home. Private nursing care can consist of Live In, Live Out or Full Time or Part Time. Live In nursing care is the most comprehensive care, care that tends to be before one would go into a care or residential home. Part Time care can be available from an hour once a week, to a few hours a day.

Respite care can also be provided to you or your loved one. Respite care is when a carer comes for a set period of time to help with personal and home care. You may require respite care if you have undergone an operation or if your current private nursing carer is on annual leave. Should you or your loved one need, your respite carer can also help with home transfers from the hospital.

Guardian Carers can also provide specialised care for those who are battling long term progressive illnesses such as Parkinsons or Alzhimers. Our specialised carers would have medical training and the relevant experience to ensure your loved one is in the most able hands whilst remaining in their home. Our private nursing carers can be Live In and offer round the clock 24hour care 7 days a week, if that it what you require, to ensure you are able to stay in the home, around the people you love for as long as possible.

How can your private nursing carer improve your quality of life?

Having nursing care at home can help you to stay in the home you love, around the people you love and the memories you’ve created for as long as possible. Your private nursing carer can help with anything from personal care and wellbeing to helping with your day to day housekeeping chores.

Your carer can assist you with almost anything such as:

  • Accompanying you to social events and outings
  • Preparing nutritious meals and hot beverages throughout the day
  • Booking reservations, transport and appointments
  • Light gardening
  • Medication dispensation
  • Personal care and hygiene
  • Keeping the household clean and neat
  • Changing the bed linen weekly
  • Going for walks around the neighbourhood
  • Encouraging a healthy lifestyle

Our private nursing carers are entirely flexible to your needs, there are they to provide you with one to one bespoke care. Your carer would never be annoyed or angry if you decide to change your daily activities and tasks, if you are having a bad day and don’t feel like doing anything your private carer can take care of everything. Your carer can be a point of motivation should you wish, they can encourage you to take regular exercise, eat healthily or take up new hobbies.

Guardian Carers also specialises in Bilingual care, currently our consultants can speak over 15 languages. At Guardian Carers we understand that having a carer that speaks your native language allows for a deeper connection to be established.

Emotional support throughout your placement

A nursing carer for the elderly is a great source of emotional support. Although staying in your home for as long as possible is the goal it can also come with the feeling of loneliness and isolation. Private nursing care provides you with the ability to continue your day to day activities and see your friends or loved ones when you wish.

All our nursing carers would have a minimum of 3 years experience, thus they have a deep understanding of the impacts and struggles you are going through, which your loved ones may not fully understand. Your carer will be there to provide a lending hand through your good and especially, your bad days.

Our extensive vetting procedure

Guardian Carers has been in the care industry for over 14 years, through this time we have learnt what it takes to provide an excellent carer and perfected our extensive vetting procedure. Each and everyone of our carers would have undergone an in depth face to face interview with one of our consultants to discuss at length their qualifications and experiences before we give you their profile. Our consultants will then personally check their verbal references. Not only do we discuss their qualifications and experience but also their interests and hobbies as we believe your carer must have similar attributes to you to ensure a long lasting placement.

To assure you and your loved one feels 100% safe and confident in your carer we ensure all our carers have the following:

  • Enhanced DBS check
  • First Aid qualification
  • Completed a Safeguarding course
  • Minimum 3 years experience

With all our carers having a minimum of 3 years experience you can expect that should you have a fall or an emergency your private nursing carer will know exactly how to handle the situation.
