It is the perfect place to retreat, recuperate and rehabilitate following an illness, injury or surgery. There is a specialised unit to care for people with acquired brain and spinal injuries. The nursing home is registered with the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) and is an approved residential site for residents over 18 years of age. This makes it a unique environment for all age groups as it replicates society/reality with an inter-generational age profile.

There is a strong commitment to ongoing quality improvement through monitoring and measurement of health outcomes. All residents are risk assessed and the primary focus is on quality and safety of care ensuring a high standard of care at all times. The essence of care is personalised to promote independence, health and wellbeing by offering a holistic approach to care.

Acquired Brain Injury and Spinal Injuries

Young people with acquired brain and spinal injuries are cared for by a specialised multidisciplinary team to include on-site neurological trained nursing staff, senior physiotherapist and senior occupational therapist. We work closely with the dietitians, speech and language therapists, neurological psychologists, clinical specialist nurses in epilepsy etc, hospital consultants and the National Rehabilitation Hospital in the care of the residents.

A series of programmes are designed to assist the person to improve cognition and mobility in addition to Disorder of Consciousness programmes. SONAS programs are delivered to provide cognitive stimulation and reminiscence. .

Admission process

Admissions are pre-planned, elective or emergency. The referral process is via hospital, family or self-referral. All admissions are based on the capability of the nursing home to meet the persons care needs. Residents are assessed by a nurse manager prior to admission. Residents and/or their families are invited to visit the nursing home initially to view the services that are available on-site. Residents can remain under the care of their GP and should they wish to transfer to the care of the local GPs this will be facilitated. Residents under the care of the local GP Dr. Hannigan and Dr. Hogan are seen routinely every two weeks in the nursing home and more frequently as required.


Clarenbridge Nursing Home is approved by all the leading health insurance companies and private health care such as AVIVA, VHI, LAYA, Gardai BUPA or privately. The fair deal – HSE nursing home support scheme is the most commonly means of funding for nursing home care. Residents apply directly to for this scheme.
