Nursing homes also provide personal care but there will always be 1 or more qualified nurses on duty to provide nursing care. These are sometimes called care homes with nursing.

Some nursing homes offer services for people that may need more care and support. For example, people with:

  • severe learning disabilities
  • severe physical disabilities
  • complex medical conditions that needs help from a qualified nurse - such as someone who has a colostomy or who is fed through a tube.
