Q. I am considering building or operating a nursing home. Where can I look for advice?

For providers who are considering building or making an extension to their centre we would recommend that they speak with a member of the SSI who may be able to offer advice.

Contact the dedicated SSI advice line: 021 2409660.

Details on room requirements are contained in the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland, Standard 25: Physical Environment.
Standard 25 sections A and B refer to existing buildings and section C refers to new builds, new extensions and first time registrations.
Please note that the criteria are indicative and not prescriptive.

What is the Nursing Homes Support Scheme?

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme provides financial support towards the cost of long-term nursing home care. Under the scheme, people who need nursing home care have their income and assets assessed, and then make a contribution towards the cost of their care based on their assessment.

The HSE will pay the rest, if any, of the costs of their care in designated public and approved private nursing homes covered under the scheme. People can choose care in any of the nursing homes included in the scheme provided that the nursing home can cater for the person's particular needs and that it has a place available for the person.

As the budget for this scheme is fixed each year, at times a waiting list for financial support may be in place
