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.

Age 32, Chennai
My father had a surgery and required regular healthcare services. Portea has greatly helped him with their in-home healthcare services.
Portea has started home infusion of cerezyme 0.8 (cerezyme replacement therapy) of gaucher disease. From past 5years. I have been undergoing ERT at Delhi hospital. But now with the help of Sanofi Genzyme, Portea done our first home infusion of cerezyme. The team which visited our home (Raghvendra sir and pramod) in this thought condition COVID and rainy weather on time and attended us were highly professional. From the very first step till the and of therapy they did everything very well. They took every percuations, share every details with as regarding home infusion of cerezyme , used every necessary equipment (infusion pump) for therapy, monitored us thoroughly. This new intiative for ERT is very nice and impressive. Thank you Raghvendra sir Thanks to portea and Sanofi for this arrangement.
We would like to put on record that we found the services of Nurse Jeesha and Nurse Sridevi to be excellent. They were competent, dedicated and compassionate Nurses who were able to establish a good rapport with the patient and the family caregivers. Your Nursing Supervisor Anthony Michael responded promptly and effectively to our communications. We would be happy to recommend the services of Portea.
