YOUR HOME IS BEST FOR A FULFILLED LIFE

We know through our experience of supporting thousands of people and their families in Banbury and North Oxfordshire, that faced with the prospect of needing long-term care and support 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.

I am a registered learning disability nurse who secured a first-class honours degree.

I have six years' nursing experience working with both adults and paediatrics of all ages with a range of complex physical, intellectual, emotional, and social needs, predominantly within a community setting in the private sector. I have worked at a brain injury unit, rehabilitating adults with acquired brain injuries, stroke and mental health conditions.  I have a specialist interest in neurology, in particular epilepsy where I secured the post of an NHS epilepsy nurse specialist.

I graduated from Birmingham City University in 2015 with a first-class honours’ degree as a RNLD Registered Nurse Learning Disabilities.

My passion for working within the learning disability field came from growing up in a family environment where my mother provided respite care to children with learning disabilities.

Upon graduating from university, I began working as a Registered Nurse at a residential school and children’s home caring for children with complex health needs who were unable to be cared for at home and otherwise would be cared for in hospital. Children’s healthcare needs I have supported include tracheostomy care, epilepsy management, postural care management, gastrostomy and gastro-jejunostomy care, peg feeding, regular suction (oral/nasal/tracheal/deep suction), physiotherapy routines and nasopharyngeal airway care. I also have experience delivering adult care to clients with mental health and challenging behaviour, acquired brain injury, chest physiotherapy and cough assist. My previous experience has given me the ability to work with a wide age range from children to elderly, with a broad range of clinical needs.

I joined Prestige in January 2020 as Regional Nurse for the East Region, where I have clinical responsibility for adult and paediatric complex healthcare needs. I also deliver team training and clinical competency assessments, completions of clinical care plans, risk assessments, auditing and liaising with professionals and families. I am also completing a BTECH certificate in Positive Behaviour Support with British Institute of Learning Difficulties (BILD) and my area of specialist interest is respiratory conditions.

I always knew I wanted to be a children’s nurse even when I was in primary school.  I achieved this in 2000, when I completed my Registered Nursing (Child) qualification at Kings College, London.

My first role as a nurse was at Great Ormond Street Hospital where I worked on a general neonatal surgical unit specialising in gastro-intestinal conditions.  After gaining valuable experience, I then joined two nursing agencies in London providing both support in complex care packages and various London hospitals in the private and NHS sectors on surgical and medical wards.  In 2012, I joined a Children’s Community Team in London, where I worked for seven years.  It was a hugely rewarding role, with much of my time spent providing care and treatment for children with cancer.

The experience I gained as a Children’s Community Nurse has proved invaluable in my current role at Prestige Nursing & Care in Shrewsbury as I am able to support our teams of carers and nurses, as well as the children and families we care for to ensure they get a high-quality and competent nurse-led service.

I have been a paediatric nurse for over 16 years, initially working within a children’s teaching hospital rotating within the areas of burns and plastic surgery, orthopaedics and general medical/ neurology, nursing children from infancy up to 17 years old.

In 2005 I joined a team on a Lead Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Over the next 14 years, I worked as part of specialist team of health professionals, caring for premature infants from 23 weeks gestation and sick infants requiring many forms of intensive care and specialist treatments, surgical intervention or palliative care. I assisted with clinical research programmes, supported and delivered teaching to parents/guardians to provide complex care for their child such as tracheostomy care, enteral feeding, oxygen therapy and suction training in preparation for their discharge home. I became a student nurse mentor supervising, teaching and assessing clinical skills and competencies at the end of the training programme.

I joined Prestige in March 2020 as a Regional Nurse in the East Region leading complex care packages for children working in partnership with multi-disciplinary teams to meet the needs and expectations of children and their families, all whilst maintaining the high standard of care required and ensuring best practice.

CARE MANAGEMENT IN BANBURY AND NORTH OXFORDSHIRE

Our responsive and reliable care at home service in Banbury means we can put care and support in place quickly and in many cases within 48 hours.   Depending on your needs a comprehensive assessment will be conducted by our local care expert.  We can conduct the assessment at your home, in hospital or in any specialist care setting if you are awaiting discharge back to your own home, enabling a plan of care and support to be developed that meets all your needs.

COST OF OUR CARE IN BANBURY

The cost of our care is dependent on the level of care and support you require.  If you are receiving our hourly care service, 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 care at home will cost.

We know that the cost of our care in Banbury is very competitive when compared with other home care providers in the area.  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, healthcare funding or Government funding that could contribute to the cost of care at home.  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.
