How we work

How to start homecare services with Prestige Nursing + Care. Arranging homecare for your loved one can be an emotional and stressful time for everyone concerned so we have made contacting us and the initial process as simple and friendly as possible.

Contact us for a confidential and no obligation conversation on how we can help. We’ll support and guide you in your decision about homecare, and answer any question you may have honestly. How do we arrange homecare?

STEP 1: Free Care Assessment in the Home

We offer a free, no obligation care assessment where you can ask all the questions you need to and we can explain all the care services we have to offer. We do visits to your home at your convenience to ensure we take the time to get to know you and your loved one’s needs before building their personalised care and support plan.

STEP 2: Making a decision

Should you decide that Prestige Nursing + Care’s homecare services are right for you, or a loved one, we will talk through our recommended personalised care and support plan with you. We’ll discuss your care team as well as plan your first visit.

STEP 3: Ongoing Support

Your local Branch team will check that you were happy with our first visit and agree on a schedule for ongoing future visits in line with your care and support plan. We’ll make regular checks that all is well and will monitor your care team closely. We’ll also keep any family members informed if you wish us to do so. At all times, you will be able to contact your dedicated local Branch team if you wish to make any changes or discuss any concerns.

Residential vs home care: understanding your options

Are you in the process of choosing between residential or home care for yourself or a loved one?

When many people start to consider care for an older adult, they may believe that care homes are the only option available. This is not the case as receiving care at home is a valid, and often preferable, solution for an older person with care needs. With the help and support of a home carer, people with care needs can remain in their much-loved homes while avoiding the distress and disruption of having to move into residential care….

Understanding what a well-balanced diet looks like is vital for staying healthy throughout all of life. Here you can learn more about the importance of nutrition and hydration including tips on how you can maintain a healthy diet as you get older….

What causes circulation conditions

As we get older, numerous changes occur in the body which can lead to poor blood circulation. When blood flow is reduced in certain parts of our body, this is known as a circulation condition. Not only can these conditions cause pain or discomfort, but they can also lead to a variety of troubling health problems if not properly managed.

In older adults, circulation conditions are often related to an underlying medical condition. If you are having difficulties with circulation problems, it is important to follow the recommendations of your doctor. But there are also many lifestyle changes that older adults can take to improve their circulation without medication….

What is a memory book?

Memories are an important part of our lives. They help us connect with our past, preserve our legacy, and provide comfort and joy in the present. However, for people living with dementia, preserving memories can become a significant challenge. Memory loss and cognitive decline can make it difficult to remember important events, people, and places. 

A memory book is a personalised collection of mementos, photos, and stories that document the life and memories of an individual. It can serve as a valuable tool for people with dementia to help them remember, reminisce and connect with their past. …

How often should the elderly shower or bathe?

A personal care routine allows us to maintain good hygiene and a tidy appearance.

But some older adults face unique challenges that make it difficult for them to maintain personal care routines.

Our carers are expertly trained to provide discreet assistance with personal care routines such as washing, bathing, dressing or toileting in a way that is compassionate, respectful and sensitive….
