What is Nursing Care?
Nursing care is for people who require assistance with medical needs as well as personal living needs 24-hours a day. The needs of the individual are unique to their condition and circumstances and may include physical disabilities, long term health conditions, rehabilitation care and in some cases a mixture of all three. This makes the need to identify the right home for your loved one and their circumstances paramount.
Our approach to Nursing Care
Since 2005, Laurel Care Home has been helping its nursing care residents and their families manage their conditions and focus on improving their quality of life. We do the heavy lifting so residents and their families are constantly reassured that they are receiving the highest levels of care.
Our nursing patients have continued access to all the support with personal needs offered in a residential care home, they are encouraged to take an active role in all our activities and outings but they also have access to qualified, on-site nursing staff throughout the day and night.
We can offer nursing care for those who have the following conditions:
– Wound Care
– Stroke Care
– PEG feeding
– Heart Disease
– COPD/Respiratory conditions
– Sensitive end-of-life palliative care
Laurel Care Home provides support for residents that are living with dementia, however, we do not have a specialist dementia secure unit, so we are unable to support residents that have a history of aggressive behaviour or are likely to leave the home and wander from the premises.
In reality, many of our residents live with dementia and may require extra, or specialised care. People living with dementia can find difficulty making sense of their physical surroundings and are likely to experience memory loss. If your loved one is showing early signs of dementia, we will work with the family to understand their needs and can provide the support and care that they require.

The nurses develop person centred care plans and discuss care with the residents…very rarely are residents admitted to hospital as an unplanned admission… the home has the local reputation of high quality compassionate care.Visiting Healthcare Professional
