Nursing and intensive care
CareTech provides bespoke, individually-focused residential care for young people and adults living with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and associated nursing needs.
We provide qualified, registered nursing staff 24 hours a day, so there is always a skilled professional on duty to provide specialist nursing care as required.
Our person-centred nursing care approach is based around our core values – that each resident is respected as an individual and treated with dignity. Each person has their own unique care plan that details their individual needs, ensuring consistency and continuity of nursing care.
Each person living in a CareTech home is encouraged to take on the responsibility and ownership of their home, and to take part in its day-to-day running. They are also given support to make decisions relating to their lives and can personalise their rooms by bringing in personal items such as furniture and if wanted, a television.
All dietary needs are taken into consideration and where required, specialist feeding aids are provided. Staff cook meals at each service and all have the necessary training and experience to enable them to understand specialist feeding regimes and routines. Snacks and drinks are available throughout the day and night.
All CareTech nursing and intensive care services are registered with The Care Quality Commission, and each home works towards a high standard of compliance. All of our services have their own internal systems of quality assessment; we also have a team of highly skilled and experienced staff who are committed to ensuring that our care meets the holistic needs of the individual and maintains a dignified and fulfilling life.
Nursing and intensive support – Case study
A much needed getaway for Elaine
Names have been changed to protect identities.
Elaine lives at a CareTech nursing home. She is physically disabled and requires 24 hour support.
At CareTech we take great care to provide enriching and positive experiences for our residents in our homes and out and that includes holidays!
Last spring, Elaine and one of her fellow residents, travelled to Southampton to set sail on the Independence of the Sea – one of Royal Caribbean cruises’ fleet.
Elaine and her companion were accompanied by a member of staff and felt secure, safe and valued throughout their travels. The two women thoroughly enjoyed their glamorous escape: “In the evening everyone dressed up for dinner, I was given help with dressing up and putting on some make-up.”
Every need was catered for and they were well supported on board by staff and crew members.
“That was the most beautiful holiday ever in my life, and I would love to go some time again” said Elaine.
