Where do I start?
The first steps in finding a nursing home.
Finding the best option can take time, so if you think you may need a nursing home in the future, it's a good idea to do some planning now.
Useful first steps:
- Ask: friends and relatives for their thoughts and their recommendations
- Visit: your family doctor who will also be able to assess your needs and level of care you need
- See: HIQA website www.hiqa.ie a list of their independent inspection reports
