It can be distressing when your health deteriorates, even more so if this leads to a need to move to a different care provider registered to meet nursing care needs. Once again you need to build trust and new relationships and the trauma of such a move can often cause health to deteriorate further.
Our registration offers a very important advantage when comparing Northwood to most other care providers. We provide nursing and residential care services so if your care needs do change we can offer continuity and peace of mind with no need to move or to even change rooms.
We have qualified nursing staff on duty at all times, which no local authority home or Residential Care home can offer.
NHS Funded Nursing Care is the financial contribution paid by the NHS towards the cost of meeting your nursing care needs if you live in a nursing home.
NHS Continuing Health Care is a package care funded solely by the NHS when your need for care is primarily health care and would normally require care within a NHS hospital. If an assessment identifies a need for Continuing Health Care then this would be fully funded by the NHS.
