Services for Older People
Our short 3 - 5 day, recovery service is the most effective, affordable way to help you to recover quickly and settle back into your own home after your hospital stay. Our staff will call in as often as you need us each day; and are only a phone call away in case of emergencies.
We also offer a range of healthcare services from personal support to intensive nursing care from just a single hourly visit to 24 hour care, and included is the provision of our telehealth service including monitoring your vital signs, pulse, blood pressure, pulse oxymetry.
All of are standards have been set by the Commission of Social Care and Inspection Framework for Home care agencies in the UK. This is because in Ireland there is currently no regulated framework for monitoring the Quality and Service provision supplied by individual providers in homecare. We use business excellence managers to inspect each area of our business to ensure we are exceeding all of these standards and maintaining the highest levels of service provision Internationally.
Daily Call services
Our daily call services take the worry off your shoulders about the condition of your parent, elderly relative or loved one who lives alone? You may be worrying that something may have happened since the last time you had a chance to speak with them. Our daily call service provides you with the solution.
We offer a full range of support for people with Dementia including clinics that are part of our Hubs. We understand the specific challenges faced by people living with dementia and ensure our teams are able to provide professional and compassionate care and support.
We do everything we can to ensure that anyone who enters our residential services maintains their independence and overall health. Our residential care homes provide a safe, warm and friendly environment with support for daily tasks such as washing, cleaning and laundry. In our homes, we work to create a welcoming atmosphere in which residents enjoy activities, go on outings and make friends with other residents. However, we recognise that residents have very individual requirements and our care homes provide a range of care services to help meet these needs, this includes a multi disciplinary team to manage each residents health care. All of our nursing homes will be linked by secure video to the hospitals that agree to allow consultations with nurses and consultants both in and out of normal hours – for everything from cuts and bumps to diabetes management to the onset of confusion. We are working with the wider Health economy to reduce emergency admissions from these homes and also to ensure that we do everything we can to ensure the highest levels of clinical excellence for our users.
Specialist nursing care
We provide nursing care for individuals with specialist requirements in many of our care homes or at home. Our nursing care teams are fully qualified and have the specialist expertise required to care for varying medical needs and requirements. People who come to us may be living with conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or Motor Neurone Disease; others may have suffered a brain injury as a result of an accident or require ventilator care.
We firmly believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect as they approach the end of their life and we provide sensitive and compassionate end-of-life care through many of our care homes. Indeed, a number of our care homes have been accredited with the Gold Standards Framework for excellence in end-of-life care.
Our day clubs provide a friendly and stimulating home-away-from-home for people who are still living at home, but who may need some additional support during the day. Many of our clubs provide care for people with dementia, physical frailty or simply those who want a more active social environment. Our day clubs give people the opportunity to socialise with friends and engage in a range of activities while their family carers have the peace of mind of knowing they are safe and cared for.
Respite and convalescent care
We understand how difficult it can be for families or friends providing ongoing care. For this reason it's important to occasionally find time for yourself. Our respite care services provide a crucial break for carers, either for just a few hours with a visit to one of our day clubs or an overnight stay in a care home for a few days or a few weeks. This offers family carers the chance to do daily chores, go on holiday or simply have some well-earned time off. We also provide convalescent care, to help people who need to recuperate after a hospital stay and to support them to be well enough to go back home.
You can now benefit from an appointment with a GP, an advanced nurse practitioner or a practice nurse, in the evenings and at weekends at one of four healthcare hubs in the city. GPs and other healthcare staff operate from four modern sites providing many of the tests, investigations, minor injuries and minor surgery usually provided in hospital. It shows what can be done when general practice operates at scale. Better results, better care, and a better experience for patients and significant savings.
Digital GP Telephone Consultation Service
Digital GP is ideal for situations where you need medical advice but you do not believe a face to face appointment is required. Telephone consultations are becoming very common in general practice and are ideal for situations where you do not believe you will need to be examined or where you find it difficult to attend in person. During the consultation, if the GP would like you to be seen face to face, an appointment would be made for you at one of the four healthcare hubs
