Nursing care FAQs

  • What is the difference between a care home and a nursing home?

    Sometimes, what people refer to as a 'care home' may in fact be a care home that only provides residential care, known as a residential care home. A residential care home is different from a nursing home. The main difference is that a nursing home always has a qualified nurse on-site to provide medical care.

    In addition to quality accommodation, wholesome meals, personal care service, help with washing, dressing and other daily tasks, our nursing team is there to provide medical support according to each resident’s own needs. Our staff also work with local GPs and other healthcare professionals to ensure each individual is supported appropriately.

  • What is nursing care?

    Nursing care offers round-the-clock support for those people who require regular attention from a nurse and may have more complex care needs.

  • How long do residents live in a nursing home?

    Individuals will have different reasons for moving to a nursing home. Some people have long term complex medical needs and others are approaching the end of their life, consequently some residents stay a short time and others live in a nursing home for several years.

  • When do nursing homes allow visitors?

    Families are welcome to visit anytime, including joining their loved one for meals. We understand that visitors have commitments including work and children, and so we try to accommodate visitors at any time.

    During COVID we do ask that visitors book with the home’s reception. For more information please click here.

  • What is life like in a nursing home?

    Daily life in a nursing home has very similar activities of daily living as anywhere else – eating, drinking, washing, dressing, sleeping but in addition there is 24 hour nursing and care support. That support might be helping with medication, helping with washing and dressing or providing mobility assistance. Each home offers personalised care, often working with other care professionals such as GPs, physiotherapists, community mental health teams, nutritionists and others.

    Each Brendoncare home offers a full range of wellbeing activities, from music and gentle exercise to pamper sessions and films. Naturally however, these are optional, allowing residents to take part in as much or as little of the programme as they like.

  • Will nursing homes take people living with dementia and behaviours that challenge?

    Not all nursing homes are suitable for those living with dementia. All nursing homes will carry out a care assessment to ensure that the home is suitable for each individual moving in. Brendoncare homes that offer dedicated dementia care.

  • What services should I expect from a nursing home?

    Nursing homes offer services to those who need more support in their day to day lives. Services include washing, dressing, help with taking medication, support with mealtimes as well as other types of personal care as needed.
