Coronavirus (Covid-19) latest information

The health, safety and wellbeing of our residents, staff and Sisters remains our top priority. We are cautiously resuming visits to some Nazareth Houses and facilities where the infection risk is low and visits can be conducted safely. Before travelling, please contact the house to check whether it is open, make an appointment to visit and follow the visiting requirements. Houses in some locations remain closed to visitors. We will keep the position under review and may need to close a home to visitors at short notice to protect those in our care. For further information please contact the relevant Nazareth House or service. Contact information can be found on each house page. We thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Life In Our Home

Continuing Care

Admission to continuing care at Ballymote Community Nursing Unit follows a comprehensive assessment and when all other options to maintain you in your own home have been exhausted.

Convalescence Care

Ballymote Community Nursing Unit provides Convalescence Care to assist individuals with their recovery following hospital discharge.

Respite Care

Respite is a service that provides a break for carers. It is normally planned in advance of admission, however it may be arranged at short notice in an emergency and if a respite bed is available.

Support us

Ballymote Community Nursing Unit has evolved from the work and commitment of the Sisters of St John of God, who first began to provide services for the elderly at Ballymote in the 1970’s.
