Nursing homes serve both short-term and long-term residents. Round-the-clock medical staff deliver the highest quality of professional care to residents seven days a week. Some nursing homes are stand-alone facilities, while others are extensions of larger infrastructures such as hospitals and retirement communities. Various types of specific therapies can be provided on-site – including physical rehabilitation, psychological counselling and treatment, and pain management. Many nursing homes can also provide top-quality assistance for specialized conditions such as Alzheimer's Care.
Nursing homes are ideal for individuals who require ongoing assistance on a daily basis. Both private or shared accommodation are available, making it easy to find the housing scenario which caters best to your budget and needs.
All housekeeping services are provided by friendly and sociable staff, who work closely with your registered nurses to ensure you enjoy the highest degree of care possible. Assistance is provided for those requiring help with activities such dressing, bathing, and dining. Nursing Homes often house their own on-site doctors – ensuring the fastest response time possible, should a medical emergency occur. Recreational and social events are scheduled regularly, so residents can enjoy ample opportunities to interact with a community of their peers.
