Essential Nursing and Care Services was established in 2002 by our Director, Rose Ware. Having qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1989, Rose is passionate about providing a high quality service.

As Head of Nursing for the Winterbourne Hospital and having worked with Service Users in their own home as a District Nurse, Rose personally oversees that each and every person that we care for, or work with, is treated as an individual. Essential are not a national company and we like to maintain that personal touch with local service users within Dorset.
Essential Nursing and Care not only work with service users and their families to provide help and support in their own homes, but we also supply local care establishments, local NHS and private hospitals, the Ministry of Defence, local schools and Marie Curie (to name but a few!) Having experience in both domiciliary and local establishment care, we are able to source our staff a variety of work and provide our service users and establishments with a variety of quality care staff and registered nurses.  

We only recruit the best and our staff are at the heart of everything that we do. You can be assured that all staff undergo a thorough recruitment process including, full referencing and DBS checks.
Our comprehensive nurse led training programme is completed within our training suites, situated in our Head office in Poole. All of our training is face to face and not delivered via e learning, as we strongly believe that our high quality training builds strong foundations.  We are registered with the Care Quality Commission which regulates, inspects and reviews all adult social care services. We are also full members of the United Kingdom Home Care Association (UKHCA).
“The nursing staff from Essential are experienced, well trained and motivated. They are reliable and trustworthy. They have taken on board the needs of the service and the expectations of the organisation and strive to meet them. The booking staff are conscientious, reliable and willing to help, whilst never adopting ‘not my problem’ attitude. They also go the extra mile to ensure that the rosters here match their own records to minimise errors. Excellent channels of communications are maintained.”
