Elderly Nursing Care
Nursing Care is the care for those with more complex healthcare needs. And also the rehabilitation needs which cannot be provided in a residential setting or at home. The Elderly nursing care homes service necessitates the supervision of fully qualified nurses. The service could comprise complex and frequent medication regimes along with regular wound care which can only be provided under the observation of a qualified nurse in accordance with constant assessment, care planning and monitoring.
Our Nursing care staff are available 24*7 specialising in providing the best elderly nursing care for our residents and are supported by highly skilled healthcare workers who assist with all aspects of support and personal care to ensure our residents receive the highest standard of care and attention.
We provide full nursing care in a variety of specialised units offering full and continuous care tailored to the specific needs of clients. This is developed through the pre-admission process where we create an individual and detailed nursing care plan for the resident that encompasses specific nursing requirements. We provide care in a beautiful environment that is designed to uplift our clients and provide comfort in a modern, purpose-built facility.
Nursing Care Homes in Birmingham
We offer Nursing care across three of the homes on our Moundsley House, Buckingham House, and Kenilworth House. Moundsley House is a 60-bedded home that offers nursing care for people with both general nursing needs and mild to moderate dementia. The home has been purposely designed and developed upon the site of a historic manor house and is surrounded by landscaped lawns. Buckingham House is a 30-bedded home that offers best nursing care for clientele with little or no dementia care. Buckingham House is a purpose-built home that boasts a large open-plan lounge and dining room, a smaller garden-view lounge and large bedrooms that each host an ensuite wet room for residents. Kenilworth House is a 30-bedded home that offers a more focused nursing provision for clientele with an advanced stage of dementia. Kenilworth House is a tailored environment to maximise the experience for those residing therein. Similar to Buckingham House, the home offers a substantial room with open planned designs and impressive sized bedrooms with ensuite wet rooms.
Each home is led by the Home Manager who ensures that quality care is maintained, with the support of a clinical team of nursing staff and supporting healthcare assistants. Home staff are supported to receive specialist training to maximise care provision provided. Additionally, each House encourages residents and their loved ones to feel as at home as possible and encourages the personalisation of bedrooms.
We work closely with the NHS and surrounding Local Authorities to try to ensure smooth transitions for patients from hospital into Nursing Homes in an effort to prevent “bed blocking” wherever possible.
We always carry out an assessment for any prospective resident to ensure that we can meet their needs. We also ascertain at assessment what type of equipment is required such as the type of bed, mattress, etc so that everything is in place prior to admission. All new admissions are registered with a local GP who visits the Nursing Care Homes on a regular basis. We also have out of hours cover.
Our nurses are encouraged to further their own development by taking up additional training which in turn enables us to care for people with complex nursing needs within the Nursing Homes on our Moundsley Hall Care Village.
We also assist in attempting to get NHS Continuing Health Care funding if we feel a resident meets the criteria. Our nurses are able to complete the required checklist which is sent to the NHS which will trigger a full assessment by a trained nurse assessor. We ensure that all appropriate documentation is available to the assessor and a nurse who knows the patient will attend the assessment.

Residents within our nursing care services benefit from a range of care services; encompassing the needs and wishes of those we support. Each client is supported to have a fully immersive and person-centred care plan developed around their needs and preferences; outlining how any risks are managed and how we aim to maximise individual life quality.
