Making an Informed Choice

Manor Hall is a residential care home which provides nursing care. Our sister home Ingham House is a residential care home which provides personal and social care. Both provide care for people needing support, but what are the differences between the two types of care?

Firstly residential care is a term that means care in a permanent residential setting as opposed to care in the community i.e. In your own home.

The main difference between a nursing home and a residential care home is the level of care and support and the manner in which that support is provided. A residential care home is for people with a lower level of need/physical dependency and a nursing home for those with relatively higher needs.

For those who are generally struggling to live at home and need some help with everyday tasks like washing, dressing, keeping up with medication and healthcare visits, having food cooked for them, getting out and about etc., but their level of physical needs are low to moderate a residential care home setting would likely be most appropriate.

A nursing home is for people with a higher level of need, this is determined by a detailed assessment of those needs by qualified staff. Someone requiring nursing care may retain their sense of mobility or may be bed bound but the significance is that they have a combination of needs which means that for their safety, they need to be under the supervision of a qualified nurse. Examples include those who have long term immobility or are temporarily immobile due to an operation (Respite or Rehabilitation Nursing Care) or are physically restricted because of conditions such as severe arthritis, Parkinson’s Disease, cancer (COPD) etc. Of course it is a question of degree however the key markers are significant nursing intervention and reduced mobility. A nursing home is required by law to have a nurse on site 24 hours a day / 7 days per week to meet this obligation.

Naturally Manor Hall can help with these decisions and a detailed assessment by experienced staff will indicate the extent of a persons needs.

The onus of all care whether nursing or otherwise is still making every effort to provide a rich, fulfilling and engaging life and to work with residents, their families, stakeholders and professionals towards meeting a clients expectations. Social care remains a strong part of nursing care at Manor Hall.

If you think you require Residential Care and not Nursing Care then please have a look at our sister home Ingham House by clicking the below button, otherwise please read on.



Manor Hall prides itself on its long history of excellent nursing care. We carefully assess potential clients and work with them and their families to ensure the service we provide fulfills all their expectations and care needs. In addition to general nursing care as described above we are also able to provide services to those with passive dementia as well as a variety of other more specific needs.. We also welcome couples and can provide bespoke differentiated care services to maintain privacy, choice and independence. Our highly qualified Registered Manager is supported by an experienced and committed team of Registered Nurses, Nursing Assistants and Support Staff who provide the best care and support to residents ensuring they are treated as individuals with the upmost respect and dignity. Care is comprehensive and consistency of service provision is provided by detailed care planning and communication between staff members. Care plans are computerised and are updated in real time, this means that the plan moves with the needs of the resident and changes as those needs change. Every care plan is different, it is a working document which is designed to reflect the wants and needs of the individual and as such it is created with the resident, their family and other stakeholders. Care also includes access to GPs, therapists and other professionals and includes arranging appointments and visits. Most on site services are included in the weekly care and accommodation rate, however additional charges are made for individual transport needs and chaperoning, hairdressing, chiropody and services or products particularly requested or required over and above normal day to day services and staff, or NHS and GP interventions.
