At Prestige Nursing & Care we believe that people who require mobility support should be able to live a fulfilled and healthy life with the right care in place, tailored to their individual needs.

As an established provider we have been supporting individuals who require mobility care to have an improved quality of life in their own homes and communities for over 75 years. We have been trusted by families up and down the country to provide care for all of life, evolving the level and type of care we provide to meet changing needs.


We know through our experience of supporting thousands of people and their families, that faced with the prospect of needing long-term mobility care that most people would prefer to stay in the safety, comfort and familiarity of their treasured home and not endure the disruption caused from a move away.  The physical challenges experienced as we get older can really impact daily life with frailty increasing the risk of falling which can result in pain and injury.  For those children, adolescents and adults who have had a life-altering accident or injury or are living with a complex condition that impacts mobility it is important to maintain as much independence as possible with the right level of mobility support at home.

For many a move away from home to access the support needed can cause much upset, worry and for some confusion. Having routines imposed on how you live, leaving your loved one, feeling isolated from family and friends or your local community are all common concerns experienced by those facing a move into a care home, specialist care setting or facing a prolonged stay in hospital.

Staying at home with mobility care means that you can continue to live life your way, whilst benefitting from one-to-one care provided by a competent and compassionate carer, who will positively impact the way you live your life.  They will focus on ensuring your home is safe and will effectively managing your mobility care needs, so you can have an improved quality of life with enhanced well-being, providing much reassurance and peace of mind.


Problems associated with aging can affect a person’s ability to move around. Mobility problems may include unsteadiness while walking, difficulty getting in and out of a chair, which may result in falls. Muscle weakness, joint problems, pain, disease, and neurological difficulties can all contribute to mobility problems. Sometimes several mild problems combine and occur simultaneously, affecting mobility.

Those in their later years are at more risk of falling, resulting in injury and sometimes periods of hospitalisation. Frequent falls can significantly reduce a person’s mobility and movement, as well as their confidence to complete day-to-day tasks and generally enjoy life.

Mobility care at home enables a person to have the right level of care and support to ensure they can live as independently as possible, whilst reducing the risk of falling and ensuring a person’s confidence and well-being is promoted.

Children and young adults with mobility problems, also known as motor problems, may have difficulty with sitting, standing and walking and may be dependent on others or mobility aids to get around.

We have a wealth of experience in caring for children with cerebral palsy which causes impaired muscle tone and movement which can lead to spastic or flaccid muscles, impaired reflexes, poor coordination, involuntary movements, poor posture and impaired balance.  Any one of these components effects how a child can move and get from one place to another.

At Prestige Nursing & Care we work in partnership with other healthcare professionals involved in our clients’ care, including occupational therapists and physiotherapists.   Our carers follow the programme of care to enhance and enable children’s participation in daily tasks by helping them adapt to the challenges they face, whether from long-term illness, developmental impairment or disability.   We help and support our clients to achieve set mobility goals, such as being able to walk with an assistive device, use adaptive equipment, stretching and other activities used in physical therapy to give children greater independence, physical function, and ultimately more mobility.


At Prestige Nursing & Care we provide a care and support package that enables you to live a happy and fulfilled life in the safety and comfort of your own home.  The mobility care and support we provide will be guided by you and tailored to your needs, giving you choice over how you live your life and the support you want. Our carers are there to enhance and enable your mobility so that you are able to approach and undertake day-to-day tasks with confidence, enjoy activities and socialise.

Our sensitive and encouraging carers will focus on supporting you with your mobility concerns in the following ways:

Safe movement around your home and out in your local community – our carers are highly trained in moving and handing and are on hand to ensure you are able to move around safely, supporting you to use the stairs, assist with mobility aids, such as transferring to and from a wheelchair if you have one, assisting with showering and bathing through to ensuring you are able to get in and out of chairs and beds.  No mobility challenge is too much for our supportive carers.

Environment risk assessment – when we come to care for you, we will undertake a comprehensive assessment of your mobility care and support needs but will also conduct a risk assessment of your home to identify any hazards that could result in a fall for example lighting, or rugs that are loose.  We will also identify any equipment that would help with your mobility, as well as provide recommendations on any home adaptations that would enable you to have a better quality of life in your home.

Positive risk taking – our carers will effectively assess risks and work with clients who wish to take ‘positive risks’ so that you can have as much independence as possible and live life as you wish.

Enabling you to stay active – we know the importance of regular exercise to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility.  Our carers will work closely with other healthcare professionals involved in your care to assist you to complete exercise regimes that support improved movement.

Monitoring your weight and ensuring a healthy diet – periods of inactivity due to a fall or general frailty can result in extra weight being gained, which can put more stress on bones and joints.  Our observant carers will proactively monitor your weight to ensure you maintain a healthy body mass index, whilst ensuring you have a balanced and nutritious diet.

Effective medication monitoring – our carers are there to support your medications regime.  They are also aware of the side effects caused by some mediations that can impact your balance and alertness, and therefore your mobility.

We work collaboratively with our clients and their families to develop a thorough care and support plan that accurately reflects a person’s holistic needs.  We also adopt a partnership approach to working with local authority partners, NHS services, multidisciplinary teams, therapists and other community bodies involved in a person’s care.  This means we are well-informed so we can provide continuity of care ensuring the right care is in place at the right time, whilst responding efficiently to changing needs and strengthening care provision when required.

Aileen had been in hospital having suffered a fractured hip as a result of a fall, and


Aileen had been in hospital having suffered a fractured hip as a result of a fall, and needed care to help with her mobility and rehabilitation.

Prestige Nursing & Care were contacted by her daughter to set up a mobility care package to help Aileen with safe movement, day-to-day tasks, personal care and the administration of Aileen’s medication.

Continuity was very important to Aileen due to her increasing level of confusion. A small team of expert carers were identified to best meet Aileen’s needs. The team spent time building rapport with Aileen, so she was comforted and reassured about the new arrangement.  The team then received bespoke training to ensure they could meet her mobility support needs.  Any concerns were responded to efficiently and effectively by the team of carers.  Aileen’s daughter was very pleased with the care provided and the improvements Aileen  was able to make.

Aileen’s daughter said: “I would like to say that I have been very impressed with the efficiency of your company and the professionalism and compassion of your carers. My mother certainly regarded her carers as friends and her mobility has much improved.”

Joan suffers with hypertension which makes her at risk of falling


Joan suffers with hypertension which makes her at risk of falling given her poor mobility and age-related frailty.

Sadly, Joan suffered a severe fall which resulted in her breaking her arm and being admitted into hospital.  Joan’s family did not live nearby and were concerned about her recovery.  They really did not want her to go into a care home.

Prestige Nursing & Care were asked by Joan’s local authority social services team to put a care and support package in place.  They wanted Joan to get the support she needed with her mobility, personal care and help around the house, so she could focus on her rehabilitation.  A team of carers was identified to care for Joan who had completed  moving and handling and medications training, so they were equipped with the skills to support her to live well at home.

The team worked closely with other healthcare professionals involved in Joan’s care, to ensure a holistic plan of care was created.  This included a comprehensive physiotherapy programme and recovery exercises that the care team could support Joan with.

The team gently encouraged Joan to complete her physiotherapy programme to achieve the outcomes required by her healthcare team.  Progress was effectively monitored by the care team and communicated to healthcare and social care professionals involved in her care.  Joan was able to rehabilitate speedily with our care, resulting in a reduction of visits needed to support her each day.  She can now live independently in her own home, with minimal visits.  Her family are thankful that she did not need to move into a care home to get the care she needed.

The cost of mobility care is dependent on the level of care and support you require.  If you are receiving our hourly mobility care the overall cost will be determined by the number of visits and frequency of visits to you at home. Our experts will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your needs at your home, or in hospital if you are awaiting discharge to truly understand what you need and therefore how much mobility care at home will cost.

We know that our cost of mobility care service is very competitive when compared with other home care providers.  It is worth noting that when comparing the cost of home care with a care package in a care home, that the fee you pay for home care is actually for the care and support you receive.  In a care home your weekly fee mainly covers your accommodation, food and social activities with the care package being only a small part of what you pay.

You may be entitled to either social care funding or healthcare funding to contribute to the cost of after mobility care at home.  There may also be other Government initiatives available and local authority support. If you are faced with having to finance your own home care (known as self-funding care), there are initiatives available to you, including care fees annuities or equity release schemes that could provide the funds you need for your care and support.
