Specialised Nursing Care in Dorset
Neurological disorders are medically defined as disorders that affect the brain as well as the nerves found throughout the human body and the spinal cord.
Structural, biochemical, or electrical abnormalities in the brain, spinal cord, or other nerves can result in a range of symptoms. Examples include paralysis, muscle weakness, poor coordination, loss of sensation, seizures, confusion, pain, and altered levels of consciousness.
At Branksome Park, we understand that people with neurological conditions often have highly complex care needs. No two cases are the same, which is why each person under our care receives their own unique care plan.
Our nursing care plans take into account all aspects of a person’s life, from their capabilities and daily routine to the medicines they take. We give each of our care staff a detailed document covering every aspect, so they can provide the very best care in line with our exceptional nursing care standards.
Our team of high-calibre nurses are specifically trained to support individuals with neurological conditions. We’re able to offer a variety of healthcare options, including residential nursing care and a rehabilitation pathway that encompasses slow stream and intensive therapy programs. Our team collaborates closely with community NHS therapy teams to guarantee seamless continuity of care.
Our experience in caring for adults from all walks of life has taught us the importance of adapting our services to each person’s unique history and personality. We understand the importance of being responsive, sensitive, and warm given the nature of our service, and we feel honoured to witness the incredible journeys of each person under our care.
We make sure every need is met by having doctors and other healthcare professionals visit regularly. We assess the medical, psychological, and spiritual well-being of the people under our care on a regular basis, adjusting their care plans accordingly.
Dementia can cause people to forget significant aspects of their past, have difficulty communicating, and struggle with daily activities. A diagnosis can be a scary and confusing time, both for them and their families.
Our care team is dedicated to providing high-quality care to our residents with dementia. They undergo an extensive in-house training program to acquire the knowledge and skills required to care for them with empathy, respect, and kindness. We believe in treating every individual with dignity, and our team members are always ready to offer a friendly smile or a listening ear whenever they’re needed.
