Admission Criteria

Mount Carmel Supported Care Home is a non-nursing, low dependency supported care unit, which offers personal and social care to a maximum of 20 older people. Each new
resident needs to be of low dependency to avail of accommodation in Mount Carmel.

Pre-admission:

Residents are admitted following assessment by the person in charge and a team of social and health care professionals, where appropriate, to establish that the resident is
low dependency and capable of living autonomously in a low support environment. Admissions are planned.

Prior to admission a full medical and social history will be obtained from the GP of the prospective resident. The prospective resident and their family are welcome to visit the centre to meet the
manager and staff and the other residents if they wish prior to admission. Mount Carmel Supported Care Home does not accept emergency referrals.

This last week has been the most stressful in the history of Mount Carmel for our residents and staff. Despite taking every possible precaution Coronavirus found its way into the Home resulting in a number of staff and residents testing positive despite all having received the vaccination. As has always been the case the staff rallied round with many working additional shifts to cover for their absent colleagues. We were blessed to have the services of our nurse and Dr Ryan. The offers of help from former staff to return in our hour of need and from townspeople to help in any way they could did much to raise the spirits in Mount Carmel House. The board would like to wish all residents and staff that tested positive a speedy recovery and to thank the manager and his staff for their monumental effort especially in the last fortnight. Unfortunately, there is still a big battle ahead. The board would also like to thank the HSE and HIQA for their great support and the caterers and agency staff who also gave us great assistance this month.
