Each of our care homes has an in-house Nursing Team which enables us to support people living with a range of complex care and medical needs that are associated with Parkinson’s, including feeding and nutrition, behaviours of concern, and spasticity and posture management.
Our homes are all Nurse-led which means that we can support people who need high dependency nursing care, and support them to lead a fulfilling life with the dignity and respect that they deserve.
We understand the importance of proactive and effective medication regimes, that are responsive to the changing nature of the condition, and our teams are trained to support people who use PEG feeding or require Hickman/central line management, if required.
Our homes are led by an experienced Nurse-led management team, and supported by a trained in-house team of Registered Nurses and Health Care Assistants.
Each of our homes has a Life Skills/Activities Team to support with holistic and therapeutic treatments, and many of them have in-house Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Everyone who lives in our homes also has the support of Exemplar Health Care’s clinical experts, including Behaviour Support Specialists.
This enables people to access holistic care and a range of services in a community-based home that’s closer to their friends and family, and supports them to manage their condition, which reduces unnecessary exacerbation of their symptoms and avoidable hospital admissions.
We also work closely with community teams and other professionals, where required, to ensure that people living with Parkinson’s receive the required support to meet all of their needs.
