Private Care at Home

Our private nurses and carers have been caring for vulnerable clients in their own homes for over fifteen years. As such, our clinically-led private care at home services are specifically tailored to our clients’ Care Plans, and our nurses and carers are personally vetted by our Director of Homecare Services and Registered Nurse, Michele Jogee.

Please refer to the following sections for more specific information.

Post-Hospital Discharge Private Home Care

Operating from our office in St John’s Wood, we are ideally situated nearby to private hospitals such as The Wellington, and The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth.

Working closely with hospital rehabilitation teams such as Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, we often undertake initial assessments whilst clients are still in hospital. This ensures that our assigned nurses and carers are fully trained in procedures and/or specialist equipment, fully enabling them to continue excellence of care at home, once a client is discharged.

Our post-discharge care services include

  • Rapid response general surgical (including wound dressing)
  • Post stroke rehabilitation
  • Post orthopaedic surgery care and rehabilitation e.g. hip replacements
  • Motor Neurone Disease management. Our staff receive personalised in-hospital training on nebuliser equipment and procedures, e.g. Cough Assist Training on nebuliser for staff Cough Assist for continuation of care at home.
  • Diabetes management. In liaison with GPs and the District Nursing Service we support clients living with both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes who are Insulin-dependent. We provide in-hospital training for our carers in the management of hyper and hypo episodes and as such, have documented clear protocols for them to follow in the event of incident.
    • Chemotherapy. Diligent nursing service including closely monitoring clients with a cancer- related condition for signs of neutropenia, a common occurrence among patients undergoing chemotherapy.
    • Cardiac. Post-surgery support and rehabilitation.
  • Palliative care. Support and care for chronic conditions or neurological conditions such as Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease or Motor Neurone Disease for example.
