Care > Nursing care at home (registered)
Nursing care is sometimes needed by elderly people who need care by qualified professional nurses. Community nursing is provided by District Nurses, GP Practice nurses, and Community Psychiatric Nurses who are skilled healthcare practitioners. The nursing practices they can carry out depend on the needs of the individual older person, and can include giving injections, administering medicine, dressing wounds and ulcers. District Nurses visit older people at home and can work with their family or carer so that they can care for the older person themselves.
