Nursing Care at the Cambridgeshire Care Home

Nursing Care by First Care Homes in Cambridge

The Cambridgeshire Care Home are proud to offer a award winning nursing care and dedicated support to those who need 24-hour support for their daily routine. All our care is delivered and supervised by a qualified nurse in our purpose build specialised nursing care home.

The type of assistance given to those who need nursing care ranges from daily tasks such as dressing, washing, toileting and the delivering of medication to medical dressings, giving injections, peg feeding and sore care.

At The Cambridgeshire Care Home, we pride ourselves on being able to provide a nursing care home with both comprehensive short and long-term nursing care packages. Here, each package is carefully designed to meet the needs of each resident.


Sarah Hooper, Head of Care, 4th June 2019

“Our multi-disciplined care team provides high-quality care tailored to individual needs 24-hours a day. We provide a safe, homely environment with a person-centred approach. This includes an expert mix of qualified nurses, caregivers and experienced hospitality staff.”

Nursing Care For the Elderly

All our staff are highly qualified. To ensure we maintain our high standards we operate a continual programme of training and support for all members of staff.

Before admission to The Cambridgeshire Care Home, we administer ‘pre-admission’ care needs assessment. This assessment enables our Home Manager to evaluate a person’s needs and form the basis of their individualised care plan.

The individual’s needs and wishes are central to this assessment. To guarantee their needs, we develop the plan alongside the resident and their family. There are regular reviews of the care plans to ensure we deliver the appropriate care at all times. We also do this to ensure we take any changes to care needs into consideration.

Individualised Care Plan

Each care plan details the health needs of the resident and also their spiritual, occupational, physical and day-to-day living needs. This means we support all our resident’s needs throughout their stay with us.

Our Location in Cambridgeshire

We encourage family and friends to visit. Being based in the village of Great Shelford, The Cambridgeshire Care Home is only a few miles away from the historic country town and university city of Cambridge. This offers the friends and family of residents’ ready access to their loved one.

We are easily accessed by train from Cambridge railway station or by car via the m11, A428, A14 and A10.

Our home is also fully Wi-fi enabled. Meaning, for those too far to travel the face of your loved one is only a quick call away.

We have no confirmed Covid-19 cases in our home

All of our Covid secure measures remain in place and this will not change following the Government guidance changes on 19 July 2021.

Visitors are asked to continue to wear a face covering, unless they are exempt, and to follow social distancing when visiting our care home. This follows the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings and will help to ensure the safety of our staff and residents at all times.

Thank you for your continued support.
