Relatives Panel

HIQA want to hear what you have to say. You have the right to be heard so why not volunteer for their Relatives Panel?

Relatives panels consist of groups of relatives of people (past and present) in nursing homes coming together to provide feedback on how to work together to further improve the safety and quality of these homes.

If this is something you would be interested in, HIQA would like to hear from you.

Standards

Find out more about the National Quality Standards for Residential Care Settings for Older People in Ireland.
The purpose of the standards is to promote best practice in residential care settings for older people and improve the quality of life of residents in these settings. The quality standards clearly outline what is expected of a provider of services and what a resident, their family, a carer, or the public can expect to receive in residential care settings.

For further information on Irish Nursing Homes in Ireland feel free to check out the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) website.

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
