Under the Health Acts everyone is eligible for a place in a public nursing home and will have to pay certain hospital charges.
Only about 5% of all older people ever need residential or nursing home care.
Residential Care is usually needed after a spell in hospital, where you are ready to leave the general hospital, but not quite well enough yet to manage at home alone.
It can also be the best option when an older person becomes unable to live alone, through illness or disability.
The HSE provides a wide range of services designed to support people in their own homes at these times, but when people do need nursing home care, it can be hard to know what is available and what you are entitled to.

Places to flourish is a development toolkit prepared by the HSE in collaboration with the Netwell Centre (DkIT) and the School of Nursing (University of Ulster). Places to flourish builds on the Older Persons Services National Practice Development Programme and the Teaglach Inititative. The question this resource sets out to address is “how can we positively change the culture of caring and living in residential care settings so that life for residents and staff can continue to grow and flourish.
