I have excellent communication, organizational skills, and the drive and energy to achieve.

What is home care in Ipswich?

Home nursing is nursing care that is provided in a home environment, rather than in a medical facility. There are many circumstances in which people require home care ranging from people who are temporarily incapacitated to people who require long-term nursing care at home (inclujding dementia care)

A1 Care Home Care Agency

Unique and tailored home care & live in care services for Ipswich patients

The level of care involved in-home nursing is tailored to the needs of the patient. Some nurses simply visit the service user in their home one or more times a day to perform nursing tasks that cannot be done by other caregivers, ( i. e: insulin administration) or to check on the patient's wellbeing if no other caregivers are being used. In other cases, home nursing the type of 1-1 care or live-in position, might be an option for individuals who no longer require a hospital stay but still require assistance with nursing requirements, such as dressings or administration of injections, or because the patient requires constant monitoring and care.

Some people choose home nursing because they are strongly opposed to staying in a hospital or similar treatment facility. If a doctor feels that the patient would do just as well or better at home, he or she will allow the patient to go home. In other instances, doctors may actively recommend home care, or family members may express a desire to take care of a patient at home. As long as a patient is stable and at low risk of complications or sudden medical emergencies, at-home nursing can be an excellent care option.

Home nurses administer medications, assist with physical therapy, check on surgical sites, supplementary feeding tubes, and medical devices, to make sure that everything is working smoothly. They often help with basic patient care like bathing, assistance with going to the bathroom, and so forth. Home nurses may also escort their patients on trips outside the house, ensuring that someone is available if the patient has a sudden medical need.

For someone with a network of caregivers, home nursing ensures that critical medical procedures are performed properly. Some people also prefer to use a home nurse( visiting nurse) for tasks that they find humiliating or uncomfortable, such as assistance with going to the bathroom. Home nurses also look out for patient welfare, using their medical training to identify cases in which a patient might be better-served by hospital care or more intensive nursing.

Other tasks that home nurse will be dealing with:

  • Completing an initial carers assessment with you alongside a local live in care manager.
  • Liaising with Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) and Continued Health Care (CHC) funding panels if your care is wholly or partly funded by the NHS or local authority.
  • Working closely with other medical professionals involved in your care, such as social workers.
  • Find a suitable carer that has the relevant skills and experience in your care needs.
  • Providing bespoke training to a chosen carer if they need upskilling for your specific health condition.
  • Contributing to a fully comprehensive support plan that includes medication, health condition(s), personal care, and hobbies & interests.
  • Visits to check that your care plan is up to date and to see how you are.

How the service will be planned

1. Care coordinator

Each service user (and their families/representatives) will be assigned a care coordinator (nurse/or senior carer). It can start with an initial phone call where information on how the service works, an estimated cost, and answer to possible questions that the person enquiring can have.

2. Organizing

The second step is organizing care needs assessment of the individual to determine exactly what the choices of the service user are, what expected outcomes are, and how this will be managed.

3. The package

Creating and booking the care package, finding suitable staff

4. Monitoring your care

We will ensure that the service we deliver will meet your needs by keeping in contact with your nominated person, ensuring that the care provided is efficiently delivered, to your satisfaction, and at the same time will ensure if your needs are changing we review our services to your needs.
