At Beneavin House we are proud of our high standards of person centred care. All our staff are registered nurses or trained care assistants looking after the needs of all our residents in a professional and person centred way.
We really enjoy celebrating and marking all important Religious and social events with our residents and families throughout the year. Led by the Social Care Leaders all Beneavin House staff create a natural person centred approach to activities throughout the day for all our residents.
We understand that our residents bring with them their individual interests and hobbies and our social care leaders will support residents in every possible way to residents wishing to maintain their interests or to develop new ones.
We all enjoy reminiscing with the residents and families and encourage families to share wonderful nuggets of information about the lives of their loved ones with us so we can engage meaningfully with residents living with or without a dementia.
Beneavin House is a four-storey building accommodating 123 residents in single ensuite rooms and 4 residents in two twin rooms. Our floors are names: Oakfield, Willowbrook, Claremont and Cedars. Claremont is divided into Claremont Walk and Arbutus. Arbutus is a 15 bedded area specifically designed to meet the needs of residents living with a dementia. The living room contains an old style kitchenette and the corridors and walls are designed to stimulate and facilitate meaningfully engagement with the residents living there. All the residents living in Arbutus are living with a dementia.
The secure walls and electronic gates make Beneavin House a safe sanctuary from the city, giving our resident the best of both worlds. With easy access to public transport, and ample parking, Beneavin House is a Dublin nursing home perfect for residents searching for nursing care home in North Dublin.
Dementia Care : The team at Beneavin House worked with Dementia Training Ireland over the last 2 years and all staff have received training in person centered dementia care. With our person centered care culture, care is driven by the wishes and preferences of residents, particularly those living with a dementia rather than being driven by an institutionalised task based model. There is an abundance of interesting items and ‘stuff’ carefully selected and available in lounges to provide appropriate stimulation for residents and to assist staff to enter and share a residents reality in a comforting and supportive manner.
Convalescent : We can offer convalescent care to patients discharged from hospital following surgery and /or medical episodes and requiring some extra medical, nursing and rehabilitative care before going home. We are approved for a number of private healthcare providers.
Respite Care : Beneavin House can also provide respite care to older persons on a private basis. This service provides well deserved breaks to family carers caring for older persons in the community. (This service may be limited in BeneavinHouse but we may be able to accommodate respite clients in one of our sister homes).
This applies whether the nursing home is public, private or voluntary. The Fair Deal Scheme does not apply, however, to Convalescent or Respite care in a nursing home. Applicants for residency in a FirstCare home cannot avail of State funding for a nursing home place prior to receiving approval of their Fair Deal application. For further information on the Fair Deal Funding Scheme and the application process please visit “Our Guide to Fair Deal Funding” or contact the FirstCare Support Office on (01) 2020799.
