Occupancy / Resident Profile
Occupancy / Resident profile
The Marlay Nursing Home is registered to accommodate 124 residents both male and female over the age of 18 who require long term Nursing or Personal Care due to being physically frail or suffering from dementia. We do not have any specific exclusion criteria but base acceptance of potential residents on current dependency levels within the home. We also carry out short term respite care and convalescence care if we have availability.
We provide 24 hour Nursing Care and employ Registered Nurses and Care Assistants in numbers based on the dependency levels of our residents so can therefore provide care for Low, Medium, High and Maximum Dependency residents. Definitions of these dependency levels are based on the Annual Survey of Long Stay Units (Dept of Health and Children) and are as follows.
Persons who need some support in the community and the more independent residents in residential accommodation who require little nursing care. They are usually independently mobile but may use a walking stick and have difficulty managing stairs.
Person whose independence is impaired to the extent that he/she requires residential care because the appropriate support and nursing care required by the person cannot be provided by the community. Mobility is impaired to the extent that the person requires supervision or a walking aid.
Independence is impaired to the extent that the person requires residential care but is not bed bound. The person may have a combination of physical and mental disabilities, may be confused at times and be incontinent. He/she may require a walking aid and physical assistance to walk.
Person whose independence is impaired to the extent that he/she requires nursing care. The person is likely to be bed bound, requires assistance with all aspects of physical care and may be ambulant but confused, disturbed and incontinent.
