Specialist Care in our Nursing Homes

At Porthaven, each of our homes provides a safe, supportive and homely environment dedicated to the care of those living with us. Some of our residents will require additional care to others, and our staff are trained to manage a very wide range of specialised requirements.

Given the complex nature of many types of ailment, symptoms often vary with each individual and it is by understanding this that we are able to provide the very best support to those who live with us.

From the moment you make an enquiry at a Porthaven care home, we begin to build a comprehensive picture of your loved one including life history, family, likes and dislikes, hobbies and social preferences. This helps us understand each resident on a personal level and this is the unique foundation of our individualised care plans.

When you decide the time is right to move your loved one into a Porthaven care home, our trained nursing staff will carry out a pre-admission assessment. This gives us essential information on each resident’s medical needs. We may also approach GP’s and other healthcare professionals who have previously been involved in care planning for your loved one.

All of this information is used to develop a care plan that is as individual as the person we are caring for, supporting them to live happy and fulfilled lives where they are encouraged and enabled to continue living with dignity and independence.

Our specialist care includes Alzheimer’s & dementia care, multiple sclerosis care, palliative / end of life care, stroke care, motor neurone disease care, cancer care, Parkinson’s disease care and Huntington’s disease care. We are waiting to help so call or visit your local Porthaven care home now to see what makes us different.
