WHAT IS A COMMUNITY NURSING AGENCY?

A Community nursing agency provides nursing and care services to people within their community, usually in their own homes or other community-based settings like supported living and residential nursing homes. Community nursing agencies like Prestige Nursing & Care play a crucial role in supporting individuals who require care and support services in their own homes.

Community nursing agencies work collaboratively with existing healthcare teams, including those in the NHS, private hospitals, social care providers, community health teams, and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs). This integration ensures a coordinated approach to care delivery.

REASONS TO CHOOSE PRESTIGE NURSING & CARE

HOW WE PROVIDE COMMUNITY NURSING CARE AT HOME

Our trusted community nursing care service is flexible and can be provided in the following ways:

  • Hourly care or visiting care is flexible and can be provided for as many hours as required throughout the day or week to ensure our clients are never without the support they need.
  • Respite care for those needing a short-term arrangement after hospital discharge to rehabilitate or when a family carer needs a break from their caring role.
  • 24 hour care for people with substantial care needs who need round-the-clock support to live well at home.

OUR COMMUNITY NURSING CARE SERVICE

A Fully Managed Service

Prestige Nursing & Care is not an introductory agency. Unlike a home care agency, we are a fully managed and regulated complex care provider. This means our clients and professional partners can be reassured that the care and support we provide are of the very highest quality.

CQC Regulated Care

Unlike introductory agencies, our service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), England’s independent regulator of health and social care. We are proud that 96% of our inspected services are rated as providing a ‘Good’ service, with 4% rated ‘Outstanding’. All our services in Scotland have been awarded at least a four-star rating.

Care in Place Quickly

We know nursing and care homes often need immediate staffing solutions to cover last-minute shortfalls. In situations like this, time is of the essence as your existing staff will be stretched beyond capacity. Our responsive team makes arranging staffing solutions quick and easy. We can quickly arrange and deliver the staffing solutions you need, often within 24 hours.

Rigours Recruitment & Training Process

Our commitment to excellence starts with our care team. Our rigorous recruitment process ensures only the most qualified and dedicated individuals join our team. Our carers undergo comprehensive training to ensure they possess the skills, knowledge, and compassion required to provide exceptional care. All of our carers have at least six months of care or health sector experience before being placed with a client or community partner.

EXPERT COMPLEX AND CLINICAL CARE

Our complex care is nurse-led and our care teams are trained in the clinical skills required to provide care and support for complex, terminal and other medical conditions. They are supported by an experienced and dedicated registered nurse who undertakes regular competency assessments and provides clinical monitoring, supervision and support.

With this leadership and oversight, carers can perform many delegated healthcare tasks and interventions at home, including:

RESPIRATORY AND AIRWAY SUPPORT
