The benefits of having a live-in nurse are priceless, giving you complete peace of mind that a registered healthcare professional is on site 24/7 and able to meet your needs without delay.
Apart from directly supporting your healthcare needs our nurses will also help with cooking and light housework. Our minimum booking for a nurse is four days and up to two weeks at a time. If nursing is needed beyond that, we’ll happily organize a replacement nurse to maintain continuity of your care. We believe our fees are very competitive and there are no additional charges, except where the nurse needs to work beyond his or her agreed hours, and then only on an hourly basis.
Financial support is possible through NHS Continuing Healthcare, if your needs are high enough to qualify. It means the NHS will pay for all your care costs, even if you want to remain in your own home. This form of funding is not means tested and will involve you being assessed by the NHS across a variety of healthcare domains. In practice, many applicants find they are declined for NHS funding, but where nursing care is required, this is usually a good indicator that your needs may be high enough to qualify. If you’re in hospital, the nurses can help with this, or following discharge home, then you should contact your GP instead.
