Patients receiving treatment for alcohol or substance abuse can now choose to receive treatment at home, with medical supervision from medical staff at Ambition 24Direct. The nursing agency now offers homecare detoxification support as an alternative to a residential stay. It is a nationwide UK service, with the option of 24-hours a day or less frequent support.
The detox service is provided by specialist nurses from Ambition 24Direct, a member of the A24 Group, who can monitor and administer medication to the patient as required. The service is also helpful to patients who are discharged from residential rehabilitation treatment and would like help at home.
According to the homecare nursing agency, home treatment affords full confidentiality and greater privacy than is the case with residential care. It also ensures continuing family life and support, where that is an option.
Agency nurses work closely with each patient’s doctor and other healthcare professionals. The nurse can monitor and maintain records of when additional support may be needed by a patient in the domestic setting, to help reduce the probability of any relapse.
Ambition 24Direct provides private homecare nursing services, including respite care and support from HCA homecare assistants. Home nursing and care support is also available for eating disorders, geriatric care, learning disabilities, mental health nursing, oncology, paediatric care, and rehabilitation.
