Nursing care at Friends of the Elderly
Nursing care is for people who may have various and complex medical conditions and need regular treatment or assistance from registered nurses. The person will often need a higher level of care that includes a medication regime. This needs to be monitored by a registered nurse to change and adjust accordingly to fit with the individual.
At FotE our nurses are supported by health care assistants, trained to identify symptoms and changes to residents’ conditions. Our care teams work closely with GPs, who conduct weekly ward rounds to discuss the needs of our residents. Our nurses and care staff are also trained in conditions and illnesses that effect older people, this training is ongoing and updated regularly to reflect current practice.
In our care homes we offer 24-hour residential care and many of our homes also offer nursing care, you can see more here.
