A nursing home is a place for people who don't need to be in a hospital but can't be cared for at home. Most nursing homes in Zambia comprise of old people and have nursing aides and skilled nurses on hand 24 hours a day. Some nursing homes are set up like a hospital. The staff provides medical care, as well as physical, speech and occupational therapy. Other nursing homes try to be more like home and have a neighbourhood feel. A nursing home is therefore a well-designed home for people who could as well be young e.g. the disabled people whose needs cannot be cared for at home or the elderly who may have other ailments that entail 24 hours care.

Home based care is supportive care provided in the home by formal and informal caregivers in order to promote, restore and maintain a person’s maximum level of comfort, function and health including care towards a dignified death. These services can be classified into preventive, promotive, therapeutic, rehabilitative, long-term maintenance and palliative care categories. Care may be provided by licensed healthcare professionals who offer medical treatment needs or by professional caregivers who provide daily assistance to ensure the activities of daily living are met. Home based care enables patients to be cared for in a familiar environment as well as allowing them to participate in and contribute to family life and make them part of their families and community.

Specialist services support people with a range of rare and complex health conditions. They mostly involve treatments provided to patients with rare diseases such as cancers, genetic disorders or complex medical or surgical conditions.

Service providers will work to the specific needs and desired outcomes and wishes of the client and their family members to help their patients live fulfilling lives and remain independent in their own homes. They also provide care and support to patients who have to live with long-term conditions. These are health conditions in which patients need specialist advice and support in being able to live a happy and healthy life with the health condition.

Each type of doctor/nurse undergoes their own unique training and education to allow them to diagnose and treat specific diseases and conditions. Because there are so many types of doctors/nurses, most people see a primary care physician for health problems first. This doctor may then refer or recommend the person to see a specialist when they need one.
