We always ‘go the extra mile’ to make sure residents feel safe and cared for. From dispensing medications, changing dressings and monitoring vital signs; to personal hygiene and managing chronic illness.

Our nurses recognise that a need for support is not always just physical. Compassion, respect and dignity are at the heart of our culture of care – both towards our residents and their families and friends.

Providing the highest standard of care

Our homes offer the additional reassurance of qualified nurses on-hand 24-hours a day. They are there to plan and deliver the very best nursing care and specialist support to residents. Our nursing teams receive constant training and development – not only from our dedicated Learning and Development Manager but also from Dr Stephen Tomkins, Head GP at Grove Surgery at Christchurch Hospital.

Encore nurses are fully supported by a team of care assistants, who work closely alongside the nurses to ensure personal care is delivered according to every person’s individual care plan.

When should you consider nursing care?

It is important to consider not only current care needs but also how much help is likely to be required in the future.

All Encore homes provide residential, dementia and nursing care – meaning that residents do not have to move to another home should their health deteriorate. Nursing care should be considered if there are ongoing health issues, such as a progressive illness that means frequent or complex nursing support is required, such as:

  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s
  • A stroke
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Convalescence / post-operative care
