What the Nurses say

I left a Staff Nurse in cardiothoracics to work in Elderly care as I felt I wanted more from my career and after speaking to AMY and I have not looked back. I have progressed my career into Management and have excellent support with my current employer. I enjoy working in Elderly care as its fast past and I have a fantastic bond with both staff and residents. CNM of 120 bedded Facility Clare 2020

I came to TTM as a Newly qualified nurse and started my career in Elderly care. I feel this is something every nurse should do as I received excellent training and built a solid foundation as I learnt skills that we were not thought in colleague or during placements and this has stood to me in my career in an Acute hospital. I spent over 9 months working in a private nursing home and then secured a position in large acute hospital. I feel my experience in elderly care has stood to me. Staff Nurse in Acute Hospital 2020

Frequently Asked Questions…

What kind of care will I be expected to give at a nursing home?

You will be expected to deliver a wide range of care. Outside of full-time residential care, some nursing homes also provide convalescence, respite and palliative care. You will be expected to care for residents within each of these settings. That includes personal care and routine tasks which occur every day. However, care homes have a very complex environment with a lot of different duties that vary from day-to-day and from patient-to-patient. The kind of care delivered is not just medical, nursing homes also provide a nurturing supportive environment where residents can achieve a sense of independence and community. You will be expected to listen, to encourage, to support and to care for each resident, which can be very rewarding and enjoyable work.

What kind of illnesses will I encounter?

The majority of residents are in on a long-term basis, some with a combination of ailments which can include Dementia, cardiac disease, renal disease, Parkinson's, MS, diabetes, epilepsy and mobility problems.
Some residents may not have any medical ailment but are in Nursing home care because they are no longer able to care for themselves at home due to a decline in their mobility or general well-being, and the natural ageing process.
In cases where residents are at the last stage of their journey in life, we feel privileged to be with them and support them during this time and to provide them with palliative care.

All staff play a role in the person-centred care provide. This includes staff working in each department within the home who all have an important role to play in the well-being of residents.

This ensures residents receive prompt assessment and treatment. No one role is less important than another amongst our team.
