The two of the most common types of care for our residents is residential care and nursing care. Though both types of care provide assistance and support, there are significant differences between them. Here at Athena Health Care Group we are proud to provide both residential and nursing care to our lovely residents.
Our residential care is designed to provide a comfortable living environment for residents who require assistance with daily tasks. Our facilities offer a range of services, including meals, housekeeping, and personal care. In addition, our residential care is designed for those who have chosen to live within a care community to benefit from a wide range of support, companionship and a variety of engaging activities.
Our nursing care, on the other hand, is more intensive and specialised. It is designed for our residents who have particular health issues and require 24/7 care from our healthcare professionals. Additionally, our nursing care facilities offer a range of medical services, including wound care, medication management, and physical therapy. Our residents may also receive assistance with daily tasks like bathing and dressing. Furthermore, our dedicated nursing team ensures we meet all medical needs and manage conditions professionally through their person-centred approach to care.

While residential care is ideal for residents who require minimal assistance with daily tasks, nursing care is more appropriate for residents who require ongoing medical attention and support.
