Anita Astle Nurse manager and managing director, Wren Hall Nursing Home, Nottingham

This setting offers students the chance to deliver person-centred care to people with complex needs

As our population ages, many care homes will be providing nursing care to older people with frailty and complex needs. Other care homes with nursing specialise in supporting those who have acquired brain injury or live with complex needs associated with lifelong disability.
