Saint Joseph’s Finalists in NHI Awards

Saint Joseph’s Finalists in NHI 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.

They are the ‘Oscars’ of the Nursing home sector in Ireland.

Over 23,000 people are reliant upon nursing homes to meet their round-the-clock clinical, health and social care needs.

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.

We are indebted to you all for the support we have received over the last number of years, all of you; our wonderful staff, families, volunteers and our community at large, have made a massive difference to people’s lives.

We promise to keep innovating and caring in the best way possible for people living with dementia and their families.

We hope you will continue to support us too.

Here are the categories and our finalists;

Nursing Home Ireland Excellence in Dementia Care Award

Saint Joseph’s Shankill 
This award would really put the cherry on top of all the achievements we have made over the last 5 years. We know that people living at Saint Joseph’s no longer just ‘exist’ but they know they still matter and they are loved and cherished right until the very end.

Nursing Home Ireland Director of Nursing Award

Norma Sheehan 
In 2012, because of her special interest in elderly care, Norma became the Director of Nursing in Saint Joseph’s Shankill.  Since her arrival, Saint Joseph’s has undergone a major transformation both culturally and environmentally.
No longer existing, people in our care now know they matter, they are alive and they are loved.  All the change was championed and driven through Norma’s passion.  Thank you Norma!

Nursing Home Ireland End of Life Care Award

Aldo de Guzman
One of our nurses in our later life home, Aldo, creates an atmosphere that is calm and relaxing and he ensures that the senses of each of his residents are gently stimulated. He also manages the relationships with the families at this often difficult time very considerately and with great empathy.
