Occupancy/ Resident profile: (Residents)

The Registered Service Provider and the Person in Charge of St Theresa’s ensures that the maximum number of Residents cared for in the Nursing Home, and the maximum number of Residents to be accommodated in the Nursing Home does not exceed the number of 40 Residents for which St Theresa’s is registered with the Health Information and Quality Authority.

St Theresa’s Nursing Home offers 24 hour Nursing care for both male and female Residents over the age of 18 years who may require care for conditions such as but not exclusive to Long term Residential Care, Short-term Respite Care, Palliative Care, Physical Disability, Dementia Care, Post-Surgery, i.e. those in need of admission to a Nursing Home for their individual care needs to be met for either physical or social reasons.

St Theresa’s Nursing Home is not an acute unit and where Residents are deemed beyond our scope of care, they are transferred to an appropriate unit or hospital as agreed by the Resident/Next of Kin and their Doctor.

A Day-Care facility is also available for those who wish to avail of such a service. Their physical and social needs can be catered for as outlined by them as with our long stay Residents. Each Day-Care person will be allocated a room to use during their day with us and hence our numbers will remain within the agreed maximum of 40 Residents for the Nursing Home as outlined with HIQA at Registration. Staffing levels are adjusted accordingly to cater for day care Residents needs.

Dear Nora, Hope you and your staff are well. I want to express my sincere gratitude for your exemplary, on-going care of my relative. He is extremely happy and contented with his life in St Theresa’s, which is a joy to see as he advances in age. Your on-going liaison with his local GP/Pharmacy is excellent and you have made nursing home care very stress free for all our family.

Communication between staff and next-of-kin is outstanding and one of the very positive aspects of my visits to St Theresa’s over the years has been the warm welcome and cup of tea I enjoy with my relative. The safety and security aspect of nursing home care for my relative cannot be overstated and affords great peace of mind to my family. He enjoys your weekly activities and mass schedules, the cuisine and the congenial atmosphere which is a constant in St Theresa’s.

Continued success to you all. Kind Regards, D.P.

Pets: Elsa

Part of our family in St Theresa’s is Elsa our little terrier who was born in St Theresa’s on May 4th 2015. She is part of the family and will greet you when you come in to visit. She is very protective of her family and will check the building to make sure everyone is well and happy and will visit if you wish in your room! We also encourage family to let you visit with your own pet if it’s possible, just inform the Nurse on duty first so Elsa doesn’t get jealous!!!
