Long-term nursing care refers to a range of services provided to individuals who are unable to take care of themselves due to physical or neurological debilitations. These services meet the medical, personal, psychological, nutritional, and safety needs of such patients.
It is a misconception that only the elderly need long-term nursing care. Children and young adults may also need this service depending on their medical condition that has impacted their mobility and general health to the extent that they cannot function without assistance.
There are several situations in which people require constant nursing care and in some cases, their condition may even warrant long-term acute care nursing. This is required when chronic conditions are compounded by serious complications and comorbid conditions leading to a person’s disability. This care may be required for activities of daily living including bathing, using the toilet, shopping, cooking, travelling, etc. Examples of people who can benefit from this care include:
Comprehensive long-term nursing care includes all the services that help a patient lead a better, healthier, and more independent life. The services include:
Keeping in mind the prolonged nature of this care, it is generally offered at home by family members or friends who act as unpaid caregivers who may or may not be medically capable and equipped to render this care. These services are also available at hospitals or clinics provided by an experienced and skilled long-term care nurse.
However, with the availability of credible service providers like Portea in India, where we offer world-class healthcare facilities, by specialised and experienced staff, right in the comfort of your house, more and more people are opting for long-term nursing care at home.

My father had a surgery and required regular healthcare services. Portea has greatly helped him with their in-home healthcare services.
I would like to thank you for the nursing services arranged during the last 10 days. Appreciate your help. I would like to mention Antony (Nursing co-coordinator) for the excellent support and help.
