24 Hour Care

To provide the very highest standard of 24 hour nursing care, our nursing team is led by Matron and her Deputy Matrons. As well as being Registered General Nurses, they all have extensive experience in elderly care.

The Services and Facilities Provided

Residents are cared for in either a nursing or residential environment according to their assessed needs. In addition to the 24-hour nursing and personal care, Verulam House provides the following services included in the fees:

  • Full board and lodging, including all meals
  • All heating and lighting
  • A full personal laundry service (excluding dry cleaning)

Services provided by the NHS to the residents of the home include:

  • Incontinence pads and aids (subject to assessment)
  • General Practitioner (GP) medical services
  • District Nursing services
  • Dietician and dietetics advice
  • Physiotherapy

Where residents need to attend appointments at hospitals, surgeries or clinics, we will arrange for them to be accompanied, where possible, if they or their family so wish. Residents may have telephones installed in their own rooms, which will entail taking a contract out and paying for this separately with the telephone service provider.
