Will I need a Nurse or a Healthcare Assistant to support me?

To determine whether you will require the support of a Nurse or a Healthcare Assistant we will carry out a full care assessment, identifying exactly what your care requirements are. Carers are able to support you with everyday activities such as meal preparation and getting in and out of bed, however, dressing, toileting, bed-making, helping you to go to bed at night etc. A Nurse will support you with more complex requirements such as dressing wounds, administering complex medication, or making clinical judgements with regards to your pain relief. Should you wish to have support from a Nurse and a Healthcare Assistant at varying times, we will be more than happy to arrange this for you.
