The admission process depends largely on where you are transferring from.
Hospital Transfers: This will require an assessment by the Nursing Home Team. Once the team within the hospital confirm that you are well enough to transfer, a date can then be set. In this case funding may be given by the hospital for a short period of time pending the Fair Deal being applied for. This is known as Transitional Funding and is usually sought by the Social Worker that has been appointed to you.
Private transfer from Home: This will require an assessment by the Nursing Home Team to determine your suitability and needs. Once this occurs the transfer can happen quickly. The nursing home GP will usually make contact with your GP and determine the needs of the individual. You will be requested to get an up to date prescription 48 hours prior to transfer.
You will need a supply of clothes on admission to the nursing home but these and all other details will be discussed with you in advance.
During Covid-19 pandemic, ALL residents being admitted to Nursing Home MUST have a Covid-19 test with a ‘Not Detected’ result prior to admission.
