Choosing the care centre that is right for you.

• We recommend that you visit the residential centre you are thinking of. Bring the IrishNursingHomes.ie checklist of useful questions to help you find out as much as possible.

• Arrange a visit and take someone with you to get another view. Good care providers will welcome questions.

• Talk to some of the people using the residence/facilities and see what they have to say.

• Talk to a trusted doctor or healthcare professional.

• Seek out the opinions and feedback of people who share your concerns, as this can be invaluable.
