Nursing Care

We provide 24-hour nursing care and effectively manage people with a variety of neurological conditions and associated health needs such as low levels of consciousness, seizure activity, PEGs, dysphagia and diabetes.

The nursing team at 1 Sewardstone Close is highly trained and able to use the GCS and FIM + FAM tools, which are critical to effectively monitor and review progress as part of our residents on-going slow stream neurological rehabilitation.

Our highly trained nurses are experienced in conducting formal assessments of nutrition and hydration, continence and tissue viability limiting the waiting time for community-based teams to intervene.

The nursing team work as part of the multi-disciplinary team at 1 Sewardstone Close to deliver a comprehensive plan and approach to each individual’s care, ensuring that we give each individual the best chance at recovery.

Care plans are developed with our residents and families. All our team members are trained in best practice care for patients living with an acquired brain injury. We believe that an acquired brain injury should not hinder a person’s access to an inclusive and varied care package and a full range of suitable and stimulating activities.  Life at 1 Sewardstone Close is inclusive, engaging and meaningful to each resident.
