What We Do > Nursing
Care for Veterans has a long history of providing pioneering and cutting edge nursing care. While most of the residents are long-term we also welcome ex-Servicemen and women for convalescence after hospital treatment or to provide short-term respite, with nursing and medical treatment.
Care for Veterans has a long history of providing pioneering and cutting edge nursing care. While most of the residents are long-term we also welcome ex-Service personnel for convalescence after hospital treatment or to provide short-term respite, with nursing and medical treatment.
The nursing care is organised on the basis of a multi-disciplinary approach that aims to keep the focus firmly on the resident. We have found that this approach delivers the best results and by keeping the resident central to the process they are empowered and much more motivated than if their decisions were taken away from them.
Through the assessment procedure we are able to ascertain the different levels of nursing care that residents require. There are three different levels of nursing care; low, medium and high dependency. One of our prime aims is to always maintain a home-like environment, supported by high quality nursing, professional therapy and rehabilitation programmes.
In 2016 we were accredited with Beacon status, the very highest award, by the Gold Standard Framework (GSF) for End of Life Care. We have been delivering care for the dying for many years, but this award recognises and publicly acknowledges the high standard of care at Care for Veterans.
“I yearn to spend my last few years where I know I can receive Comradeship, friendship, care and help wherever or whenever it is needed. I cannot speak too highly of the matron through to the gardener and all I can say is thank you all for making my respite stays such a pleasure to look forward to” Respite Resident
