We believe that people are much happier being nursed in their own home. They want to feel safe in familiar surroundings with family and friends and the reassurance of 24-hour, one-to-one nursing, seven days a week. Most of our live-in registered nurses have at least 20 years nursing experience gained across a wide variety of healthcare settings and specialties, and we carefully match their skills to the needs of each client.
Our Nurse Co-ordinators are office-based, experienced and registered nurses, always on hand - day and night - to provide expert help and advice. Together with our live-in nurses they work closely with families, GPs, district nurses and other healthcare professionals to provide a co-ordinated, holistic package of care for our clients.
In addition to being highly qualified and experienced clinicians, our nurses also provide invaluable companionship and emotional support. They’re also happy to help with cooking and some light housework. Our nurses typically work a 12-hour day with a two hour break but you have the reassurance that the nurse is always physically present, beyond these hours and through the night if needed.
“Our two nurses were Ann and Dorothea. Ann arrived when we were at breaking point, desperately needing help. The difference she made immediately on arrival was quite simply life changing - mostly for my father. Dorothea followed Ann’s two weeks, which we were trepidacious about, as the two weeks previously had been so much calmer for us all as Ann fitted in so well. We needn't have worried, as Dorothea was wonderful too. Both nurses would come very highly recommended by us all." - Anon
