The NHI Nursing Home Community Initiative Award
Bank of Ireland
This exciting award is open to all NHI registered nursing homes. The award is established to celebrate the contribution that nursing homes make to the local community. Nursing homes don’t exist in isolation, but instead are a part of local communities. Many nursing homes play a significant role in their local communities and indeed, enable many older people/people with disabilities to remain connected with their local community. In addition many Nursing Homes have active volunteers from their local community.
Candidates for this award should be employees of the nursing home and should be selected on the basis that they have achieved significant success in being an active member of the local community and through active engagement enriches its social infrastructure.
