We offer a range of care that helps recovery and rebuilds independence – and as one of the UK’s leading providers of nursing and residential care homes you can be sure of the very best specialist nursing care.
And you don’t need Bupa health insurance to stay in our care homes, they are open to everyone.
Illness and surgery place tremendous strains on the body, so the quality of care received during the recovery process is extremely important. A well-managed recovery reduces the risk of complications and reduces the possibility of needing further treatment or a return to hospital.
Convalescent care focuses on recovery from a debilitating illness. Although no longer ‘ill’, after some illnesses the body needs time to recuperate through a combination of rest, appropriate exercise and a good diet.
This is often best done away from home, supported by specialist staff who provide specialist medical and therapeutic support.
Post-operative care is similar to convalescent care but involves additional care.
An example of post-operative care would be after a hip replacement operation. This is a major surgical procedure, especially in an older person. Although a patient may have been discharged from hospital, they are often not mobile enough to look after themselves in their own home – specialist care in a nursing home means a quicker, safer recovery.
What to expect at a Bupa care home
When you arrive you’ll be given an individual assessment to make sure all your needs are met. You’ll have the peace of mind of 24-hour care. And if you stay in one of our nursing homes, a nurse will be on hand 24 hours a day to provide care and reassurance.
You’ll be well looked after with a range of activities, delicious meals and laundry service. Other extras and additional services can include chiropody, hairdressing, and physiotherapy. If you have any extra requirements, we’ll be happy to discuss them with you.
The cost of care
Fees vary depending on the type of care and accommodation and the duration of your stay.
Additional charges may apply for treatments and services such as hairdressing, newspapers, physiotherapy, chiropody, speech therapy, occupational therapy and aromatherapy. Each home manager will give you the details and costs of extra services and information about your terms of stay.
