Nursing Homes in Ireland
Only about 5% of all older people ever need residential or nursing home care.Residental Care is usually needed after a spell in hospital, where you are ready to leave the general hospital, but not quite well enough yet to manage at home alone. It can also be the best option when an older person becomes unable to live alone, through illness or disability. The HSE provides a wide range of services designed to support people in their own homes at these times, but when people do need nursing home care, it can be hard to know what is available and what you are entitled to.
