District nurses Calderdale

District nurses visit people in their own homes or in residential care homes, providing individual care for patients and supporting family members. As well as providing direct patient care, district nurses also have a teaching role, working with patients to enable them to care for themselves or with family members teaching them how to give care to their relatives.

District nurses offer care including:

  • Nursing procedures including wound dressing or giving injections
  • Supporting and advising on health care and preventing ill health
  • Providing palliative care and end of life care
  • Teaching health care techniques to patients, family or carers
  • Providing equipment to help patients be independent
  • Assistance with rehabilitation
  • Providing emotional support to family and carers
  • Helping patients to contact other community, social and voluntary services

The District Nursing Service provides a 24 hour service, 365 days a year.
