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.
My mother, from the day she took up residence in June 2013 was made very welcome, looked after very well and encouraged to become involved in the Home activities, especially the many choir sessions. Any time we visited we were made very welcome by the staff, the other residents and kept up to date with all matters relating to my mother. When my mother passed away in November 2017, the Management and Staff were most kind and considerate during that difficult time. K.C.
