Nursing care

NURSING CARE
Nursing care provides for older people who have a medical condition or illness that requires frequent medical attention, in addition to their residential care needs.
Our caring, experienced registered nursing staff and carers provide first-class round-the-clock support.
Nursing care is available for both on a permanent basis and for short stays for people needing rehabilitation, following surgery or a period of illness.

Heathlands Village also offers a physiotherapy service.

Beacon Status

Heathlands Village has “Beacon Status” – the highest level of accreditation possible under the national Gold Standards Framework for end-of-life care.

Funding nursing care at Heathlands Village

People who cannot afford to pay privately for their nursing care at Heathlands Village may qualify for public funding from their Local Authority and the NHS.

They will need to have a full assessment of their care needs and financial circumstances to check if they qualify for funding.

Family contribution

Public funding does not cover all of the cost of care. For this reason, The Fed expects families of residents to contribute to the cost, where possible.

If a resident does not have any family or the family cannot afford to make a contribution, The Fed may agree to fund the shortfall.

Other funding

Residents who need nursing care may be eligible for “Continuing Care” or “Rapid Response” funding.

Continuing Care is care provided over an extended period of time, for someone’s physical or mental health needs due to disability, accident or illness.

If the main reason that a person needs care relates to their health, the NHS is responsible for providing for all their care needs. This is known as “fully funded NHS care”.

The Rapid Response Service provides urgent assessments in the community, and care for patients who have an acute medical need.  It is designed to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.
