At MPS Care, our care starts with you. Our staff specialise in a range of care types to ensure your loved ones are always treated with dignity and safety.
What is Nursing Care?
Nursing Care is a specialist form of care that is provided and supervised only by those carers who have trained to become registered general nurses.
How do we provide in-home Nursing Care?
At MPS Care Group, our qualified nurses are always present to provide our residents with a range of specialist medical care. With the ability to identify, interpret and deliver medical attention at short notice, you can rest assured that your loved ones are in the most qualified hands when staying with us.
What is the aim of in-home Nursing Care?
Our in-home Nursing Care for the elderly services aim to provide 24 hour nursing care and support for any residents who require input from and supervision by a registered nurse. While our main aim is to administer healthcare and ensure their safety, the specialist support our nurses provide allows our residents to lead the independent, active and fulfilling lives we want them to lead here at MPS Care Group.
What’s the standard of our Nursing Care?
It’s no exaggeration to say that all of our nurses have been thoroughly and expertly trained to deal with an array of health issues. They are fully capable of devising and monitoring individual care plans, providing and administering treatments/injections as well as carrying out timely or emergency medical interventions. What’s more, they proceed with sensitivity and compassion in everything they do, because we know how important it is for your loved ones to feel comfortable when receiving specialist care.
What’s the difference between Nursing Care & Complex Nursing Care?
Complex Nursing Care refers to the treatment administered to those patients suffering from significant, continuing healthcare issues. These complex cases require nurses who are proficient in a wide range of specific care methods, which is why we have strived to employ these talented carers throughout MPS Care Group from the very beginning.

What is Residential Care?
Elderly Residential Care is a broad term used to define the general support you or your loved ones can expect to find at the majority of modern care homes. It’s fundamental aim is to help those struggling with a variety of daily activities to complete them in a supporting environment, with as little impact on their personal freedom as possible.
What does Residential Care involve?
Unlike more technical or specialist care types, Residential Care encompasses all the micro-actions which make up an individual’s time within a certain care home. By prioritising comfort and emotional support, a successful Residential Care programme strives to ensure every resident is fit, happy and healthy in their new home, both physically and mentally.
What makes a good Residential Care Home?
Our Residential Care staff are just as dedicated when it comes to providing the highest quality of care for your loved ones as any of our specialist care administrators. Whether it’s helping you complete daily chores, ensuring you’ve taken medication or keeping you engaged with daily activities, our committed team of excellent carers will always be there to provide a personable level of professional support.
How important is a Residential Care programme?
The foundations set out through an effective Residential Care programme can play an even more important role if the health of your loved ones deteriorates for any reason. If this happens, then the confidence instilled by our expert carers will ensure that any further types of care can be administered quickly and with ease.
When does somebody need Residential Respite Care?
If any of your loved ones are struggling to live independently at home, but aren’t in need of 24 hour attention or specialist nursing treatments, then Residential Care is the perfect solution. Here at MPS Care Group, all of our care homes provide Residential Care as standard, and all of them are committed to ensuring our residents can see out their golden years in style.

When should someone with dementia go to a care home?
Anyone who has ever cared for a loved one with dementia knows how difficult and emotionally draining a task it can be. Dementia patients require more support than most in order to maintain their psychological and physical well-being, so when you can’t meet these needs yourself anymore, we at MPS Care Group can support you with the best EMI nursing and dementia person centred care.
Our specialist Dementia Care Homes
Our homes specialise in Dementia Care, and a large proportion of our staff have been trained to provide dementia patients with exceptional levels of support. Whether it’s the activities we encourage them to take part in, the medication we administer or simply the time we spend with them, we’re committed to ensuring that their illness does not define them.
Our approach to Dementia Care
Truly exceptional Dementia Care is a case of treating each patient as an individual and finding out exactly what makes them special. As such, our staff take the time to get to know exactly who your loved ones are, the hobbies they enjoy, the people who inspire them, the music they listen to – all the little things that jog their memory and bring them feelings of comfort and happiness.
At its most progressed stage, dementia can seriously threaten an individual’s sense of self and identity. We see it as our mission to prevent this from happening, developing meaningful relationships with our residents to ensure they all feel like part of a family. The idea of feeling at home is often seen as a cliché, but we understand just how important it can be to feel like you belong in the space around you.
How do you care for someone with Dementia?
As with all of our care types, our Dementia Care services are designed to let your loved ones make their own choices with dignity and independence. We find this sense of autonomy helps patients feel respected, which in turn helps them to respect the importance of their personal care plan.

What does Day Centre / Respite Care mean?
Day Centres (or ‘Respite Care Centres’) are an important aspect of caring for elderly individuals with disabilities, mental illnesses or, most commonly, dementia. They are designed to give carers a respite break from what is otherwise a 24 hour responsibility, allowing them to rest and recharge while also granting their patients the opportunity to meet different people and try new activities.
Why is Respite Care important?
Focused, one-to-one care has a host of benefits, but it also has its weaknesses. For instance, if a patient’s primary carer needs to take some time away from work for a family emergency, then having an effective Day Centre system in place is imperative to ensuring that their absence has as little impact on your loved one’s well-being as possible.
What makes a good in-home Respite Care centre?
At MPS Care Group, our Day Centre service goes both ways. The comfortable familiarity of our homes, as well as the friendliness of our staff, makes them a perfect day out for any external residents seeking a break. Alternatively, if any of our residents or carers need respite services then we also strive to ensure that our residents transition smoothly between locations.
More than just a temporary care home
Although we are committed to always being there for you, we understand that sometimes people need short term respite care. When that happens, you can rest assured that our Day Centres for the elderly services will be there to support your loved ones no matter what.

What is Domiciliary Care?
Domiciliary Care (also known as ‘Dom Care’) is a service provided to elderly people who require some form of care and support but who are still able to safely reside at home. With MPS Care Group, this means your loved ones can remain in the comfort of their own home while still receiving the highest quality of care and support from our specially-trained domiciliary care providers.
Why is Domiciliary Care important?
Maintaining our independence as we get older is important, and sometimes people aren’t ready to give up their home comforts just yet and move to pastures new. But it can also be difficult, and it’s important that, when your loved ones want to remain at home, they can do so with dignity and with the adequate support systems in place. That’s where private dom care can help.
What does a Domiciliary Care worker do?
Whether it’s a case of administering medication, cooking food or even just changing a lightbulb, our dedicated Domiciliary workers are committed to ensuring that your loved ones can continue to live through their golden years exactly how they want to.
What does Dom Care involve?
One of the most important elements of an exceptional Domiciliary Care programme is one which prioritises exemplary hygiene standards. Tasks such as emptying bins, cleaning or changing bed sheets can be physically demanding for elderly individuals. That’s why our Dom Care staff have been trained to identify and carry out daily tasks so that you can rest assured your loved ones are living in clean and healthy conditions.
What makes a good domiciliary setting?
Before offering Domiciliary Care services to you and your loved ones, we’ll be sure to carry out a thorough inspection to confirm that their specific care needs can be carried out at home. If we think it will be unsuitable or unsafe for them to remain where they are, then there will always be room for them at one of our closest care homes.

What is Palliative Care?
Palliative Care is a specialist type of care available to individuals who are suffering from an illness that cannot be cured. It is sometimes known as end of life care nursing. Commonly, Palliative Care is provided for those who are in the last days, months or years of their life, and has the aim of offering them the highest quality of life possible while allowing them to pass away with dignity.
Our approach to End of Life Palliative Care
To provide a level of care that is both sincere and sensitive, we start by asking you and your loved ones for any specific wishes or preferences, and we respect those wholeheartedly when planning their final stages of care.
Why is Palliative Care important?
You only get one opportunity to provide a successful end of life journey. That’s why our carers take a holistic approach throughout any Palliative Care services that they provide. By treating each individual as a person, and not simply viewing them as their illness, we ensure that their every need is provided for in a supportive and timely manner.
Who is affected by End of Life Care?
The nature of Palliative Care means it can also be a heavy emotional burden for family members or friends. To support you through this difficult time, our carers have been trained to ensure that you are coping well and getting any help you need, alongside fulfilling their primary role of ensuring your loved ones enjoy the final moments of their life.
When should someone be offered Palliative Care?
The moment you need to start preparing for end of life care varies from patient to patient, but residents at MPS Care Group can receive Palliative Care at an earlier stage of their illness. At this point, our main aims are to make your loved ones as comfortable as possible, manage their pain and reduce the effect of any distressing symptoms.

What is Personal Care?
Personal Care is a continuous service which involves the discrete levels of support necessary to improve and maintain an individual’s personal hygiene as well as their general appearance. It can cover anything from applying medical lotions and cleaning intimate areas to providing professional foot care or maintaining oral hygiene.
When does somebody require Personal Care?
If a member of your family is struggling to perform routine daily tasks such as bathing and toileting, then effective Personal Care services can provide them with the support they require to live with dignity on a day to day basis.
How do you maintain privacy and dignity when providing Personal Care?
During any form of Personal Care, it is important for both the day nurse and the patient to respect each other’s personal boundaries. That’s why our carers take the time to get to know each and every one of our residents, so that they can be as comfortable as possible when receiving any Personal Care. This also helps us to develop an in-depth care plan for your loved ones, to ensure that you and any other family members are also comfortable with the care we are providing.
What is the importance of private nursing?
All of our carers have been expertly trained to provide an exceptional level of Personal Care that does not impede on an individual’s sense of personal privacy. Being discreet, compassionate and sincere are important qualities to our staff, all of whom are committed to going the extra mile and ensuring your loved ones are living with dignity and independence at all times.
Our approach to Personal Care
As with all forms of care available through MPS Care Group, our Personal Care support is designed to fit around the needs and routines of each individual resident. Whether your loved ones prefer to wash in the evening or in the early hours, our specialist carers will gladly follow their schedule, ensuring that they can continue to live the way they want to live.

What does Bariatric Care mean?
‘Bariatric Care’ refers to the practice of moving, assisting and aiding patients with day to day movements. Within our care homes, we use specialist equipment and techniques to support the rehabilitation and mobilisation of our residents, enabling those who struggle with their mobility to move with dignity once more.
Why is Bariatric Care important?
Caring for elderly patients brings with it a variety of specific challenges, but one of the most common hurdles we face is the limitations that an individual’s physical conditions may have on their functional capabilities.
Who needs Bariatric Nursing?
At MPS Care Group, our bariatric physicians have been trained to use expertly-crafted devices to provide ease and comfort while assisting our residents in their daily routines. We are committed to ensuring that, even when movement is restricted and difficult, these patients can move around their bedrooms and throughout their new homes with dignity and comfort. Furthermore, we are committed to mitigating any effects a patient’s mobility might have on their personal hygiene or mental wellbeing.
What makes a good Bariatric Care centre?
We provide excellent bariatric physical therapy and rehab. By using equipment that is both effective and discreet, we make sure our patients are comfortable in the presence of such physical aids while maintaining an efficient working environment for our team. This allows our staff to facilitate everyday procedures at an accelerated rate, so that they can spend more time on any other elements of an individual’s care.
