A pre-assessment will be carried out with you and your family to ensure our service can meet all you needs.  Once a decision has been made that you now require continuing care and our service can meet your needs, the Unit Manager will contact you to inform you when a bed is available.

If you are happy to have continuing care here at Ballymote Community Nursing Unit, a full Admission assessment will be carried out, and you and your family/carer will be fully involved in this process.  Following this assessment, an individualised care plan will be developed in consultation with you and your family based on your needs and preferences.

Our service is supported financially through The Fair Deal Scheme and you will apply for funding for your care here at the Community Nursing Unit through Care of the Older Person Services.

Further information on this scheme can be found on the HSE website
