Care Home Healthcare

Care Home health care refers to a wide range of health care services that can be given in a care home for an illness or injury. This type of care is also provided for elderly people who are unable to live safely in their own home. If you or a person you know is struggling to live alone, this may be the best option. Residential care homes provide 'home-style' accommodation, with staff who help with personal care, medication and other activities of daily living (ADLs). Nursing Homes have the added provision of nursing care and assistance, for those that require increased medical interventions.

Care homes can often reduce the stress of looking after your health and care. Therefore this can help you focus on other things, like your social life and general wellbeing.
