Nursing care is dedicated to supporting people with both simple and complex nursing needs. Our nursing communities have 24-hour nurse leadership, supporting a care team with expertise, skills, and knowledge. Our registered nurses tailor our care planning and delivery to the unique and individual nursing needs of residents to ensure the highest degree of care in each one of our nursing care homes.
Our Nursing Care
Our nursing communities care for people who need the planned and guided care of a qualified nursing team. That might, for example, include residents who need rehabilitative care following a stroke or injury, residents with physical disabilities or a resident living with a long-term condition, such as Parkinson’s disease, arthritis or respiratory illness.
We carefully assess the level of nursing care for each resident and from this, create a collaborative care plan that is tailored to all of the needs of the individual within their nursing care home. This plan is agreed with the resident, their family and health professionals to ensure it meets all their personal needs. Our care plans help ensure that each resident we care for is treated with respect and that their independence and choices are maximised.
Our care and nursing teams are given ongoing professional and personal development training to ensure we provide the very best clinical, emotional and social care within our nursing care homes. We work closely with a multidisciplinary team of doctors, community nurses, social workers, dieticians, physiotherapists, and other health professionals to build the ideal support structure to meet individual care needs.
Lifestyle and Activities
Before coming to live at a Hallmark care home, every resident completes an ‘About Me’ booklet that gives us a great insight into their history, hobbies, likes and dislikes. This enables our care team to encourage and support residents to lead fulfilled lives through their relationship-centred care approach, with activities which are always suited to the residents’ interests to ensure happiness.
Our homes offer a wide variety of activities, clubs and lifestyle choices and residents are assisted so that they can take part wherever possible. Activities vary greatly; they can be anything from a relaxing afternoon tea, visiting musicians to arts and crafts. The activities help to stimulate the mind and keep residents happy in between visits from family and friends.
Each nursing care home is full of some of the best technology to help care for your loved ones and with a high level of cleanliness at all times, you can ensure that they are cared for without compromise.
Hallmark Care Homes have won the prestigious Pinders Healthcare Design award seven times for ‘Best Care Home’. Most of our homes offer a range of beautifully designed facilities such as our state-of-the-art cinema, relaxing therapy rooms, hair and nail salons, and beautiful outdoor spaces so that residents can continue their everyday routines in familiar settings, with high-quality nursing care at all times. Residents are supported by our care team to use these facilities wherever possible. Residents can also enjoy time with family and friends over fresh coffee and homemade cakes in one of our friendly, vibrant cafés.

FAQs about Nursing Care
What is nursing care?
Nursing care is a higher level of support provided by registered nurses and often accompanied by care assistants during their daily responsibilities. It is provided to residents who require 24 hour specialist care, such as those living with a long-term condition or illness.
At Hallmark Care Homes, we also work closely with a multitude of skilled healthcare professionals, such as social workers, doctors, dieticians and physiotherapists, to ensure our residents receive high quality, compassionate personalised care.
As part of each resident’s personalised care plan, our team carefully assesses the level of nursing care required for each resident to meet all their physical and emotional needs.
What are the different types of nursing care?
Our team of empathetic, qualified nurses carefully assess each resident’s needs to determine the best type of nursing care and level of support required to lead a fulfilled life. We provide several types of nursing care for those with both simple and complex needs, such as:
- Rehabilitative care (following stroke or injury)
- Physical disability
- Those who require regular medication intervention
- Long term condition (i.e. Parkinson’s, arthritis, or respiratory illness)
Hallmark Care Homes have substantial resources and are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to care for those who require extra support. Our nursing care facilities are home to 24-hour support backed by a team with expertise, skills, and knowledge.
What is the difference between a carer and a nurse?
Determining whether your loved one requires a carer or a nurse will depend on their individual circumstances and the level of support they require. Whilst our carers and nurses at Hallmark Care Homes work collaboratively to ensure each and every resident’s needs are met, there are differences in what their roles involve.
A carer is on hand for ongoing support and care throughout the day. They help your loved one to maintain their independence, but also assist with day-to-day tasks that they may find difficult to do alone. These include tidying, assisting with dressing and bathing, providing support at meal times, as well as engaging in fulfilling activities with residents to help them experience the very best quality of life.
A nurse is professionally qualified in medical care and typically works in hospitals, as well as care homes to deliver nursing care. They are licensed to carry out specialist levels of care such as administering medication, applying dressings and helping to manage symptoms of long-term conditions or illnesses. Our nurses at Hallmark Care Homes receive ongoing professional and personal development training to ensure your loved one receives the highest level of nursing care.
