Quality of Care
In accordance with the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland as laid down by HIQA (The Health Information and Quality Authority), our primary purpose is to ensure that a high standard of care and accommodation is provided to our residents.
In the final stages of life, we will provide all necessary nursing, medical and support facilities to residents and their families. We do not transfer residents to an acute setting except for specific medical reasons, which will be done in accordance with their wishes.
Cost of Our Services
Each resident’s payment arrangements will be discussed and agreed with our Patients’ Accounts Office on completion of a Financial Assessment Form.
