A fully managed nurse-supported clinical care service
Nursing care is a specialist package of support delivered by specially trained carers and overseen by one of our qualified clinical nurse team. This type of care is typically more complex in its nature, requiring specialist support for certain health care needs. Nursing care at home can enable someone living with a complex health condition to continue living in their own home, without having to move into residential care. This can be beneficial both physically and emotionally, due to being able to stay in familiar surroundings near to beloved partners, pets and possessions.
Live-in care is usually the preferred option for nursing care, as it means that a carer can live with you in your home and be on hand around the clock. Your carer will be matched with you for your health condition, personality and hobbies, so hopefully you’ll have lots in common and will quickly build a rapport with them.
For complex care, there will also be support from our local branch teams to cover your live-in carer’s breaks and also assist with any care needs that require more than one person.Request a callback Email us

Are there any funding options available?
How to fund long-term care is an important consideration when looking at home care options. Depending on your personal circumstances, there may be public funding or benefits available to you, or other finance options.
Most of our customers fund their care privately or via direct payments. If you’re funding care yourself, we do recommend that you first research whether any benefits are available to you. We’ve provided lots of advice here to help you get started and point you in the right direction.
If you live in England, the threshold after which you will have to pay for your care in full is £23,250. If your assets exceed this amount, which includes most savings and investments, your local authority will consider you able pay for care yourself. It is important to remember that for care within your own home, the value of your property will not be taken into account.
You can ask your local council for a Financial Assessment to see if you qualify for help towards your care costs.
This assessment will look at your financial means and calculate whether:
- The council pays for all of your care
- The council pays for some of your care and you pay for the rest
- You pay for all of your care
Call us today if you’d like some advice on your funding options. However, we do also suggest that you speak to a financial advisor who has care fee planning knowledge and experience.
