Care homes providing nursing care

Care homes providing nursing care

Care homes with nursing care have registered nurses providing 24-hour nursing care and experienced care assistants providing personal care. They are often referred to as nursing homes.

They might specialise in certain types of disability or conditions such as dementia.

If you need care over a 24 hour period, which means that you need support both during the day and at night, it may be that your needs would be better met in a care home, this may be a residential or nursing care home. 

To work out what support you will need, you and/or your relative will have a conversation with a social care worker who can help you consider the options to have the support that you need.  The conversation might be virtual (over the internet), in your own home, in a care home or sometimes in hospital.  You will be fully involved in planning your care needs.

The purpose of this assessment is to:

  • ensure that if you are living in a care home, it is the right care home for you (this may be a residential or nursing home and may provide specialist care dependent on your diagnosis and needs for example if you have a diagnosis of dementia).
  • ensure your care and support needs are being met appropriately.
  • that you meet the eligibility criteria

If a care home providing nursing is the best solution for you, your allocated social care practitioner will give you information to help you find a home which meets your care requirements.
