About NHI Care Awards
The Nursing Homes Ireland Care Awards are the premier national celebration of the outstanding care being provided by nursing homes in communities across Ireland. The prestigious event honours and recognises exceptional care being provided to thousands of nursing home residents across the country.
Best practice within the nursing home sector is promoted through the Awards. They provide opportunity to pay tribute to individuals who are demonstrating outstanding excellence and dedication within their field of work. Over 23,000 people are reliant upon nursing homes to meet their round-the-clock clinical, health and social care needs. The care provided within nursing homes is enhancing people’s lives. It enables people live life to its full potential. Nursing homes are mini-communities with dedicated care staff employed across a range of disciplines. The thousands fulfilling vocations across the country are providing fantastic care, support, comfort and reassurance to the thousands entrusted in their care.
Hundreds of people from the nursing home and healthcare sectors will gather for the ninth annual NHI Care Awards at the Citywest Hotel, Dublin, on Thursday 15th November. The ten award categories reflect the diversity and many facets of nursing home life. They recognise not only outstanding staff, but innovative and best practice in the provision of care. Nurses, carers, activity coordinators and ancillary staff receive deserved recognition on the night. The awards honour best practices in dining and nutrition, social and recreational activities, excellence in dementia care, end-of-life care and those at the centre of nursing home life – the residents.
It is an open nomination process, with nursing home staff, residents, their relatives and friends, and the general public invited to nominate. Nominating is easy and you can do so by filling out the application form.
An independent judging panel, drawn from diverse backgrounds and differing fields, will spend many hours and days assessing and adjudicating the nominations before interviewing finalists ahead of the awards ceremony.
