We know that this is a new term in the care industry of Nigeria. However a nursing home, Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) or
Skilled Nursing Unit (SNU), is a place of residence for people who require constant medical care and have significant deficiencies
with activities of daily living. Residents include: the elderly and younger adults with physical disabilities. Adults 18
or older can stay in a nursing home to receive occupational and other rehabilitation therapies following an accident or illness.
Skilled nursing care, though often associated with seniors, does only apply to seniors. There could be need for long-term
nursing care due to an injury or illness, or short-term concentrated rehabilitation while recovering from a surgical procedure
or acute medical condition. GNCC provides skilled generic healthcare services 24hrs/day. Regardless of the nature or complexity
of the medical care required the aim is to residents to their original living situation as soon as possible.
Short-term rehabilitation services include:
GNCC operates a resident oriented care system. This ensures a higher quality of life, in respect of attention of time spent
with patients. Our nursing home attendants are able to connect with our residents which allows them to dispel many feelings
of loneliness and discontent. We use the resident-oriented care because our nurses are able to become familiar with each
patient and cater more to their specific needs, whether they be emotional or medical.

and enjoy social interaction and recreational activities in a safe and supportive environment.
