Hiqa reports:

Drogheda Memorial Hospital was founded in 1899 by the Turf Club.

Lord Drogheda was the Chief Steward of the Turf Club, hence the name Drogheda Memorial Hospital.

In 1988 the Eastern Health Board took over the management of the Hospital and it is now run by the Health Service Executive (HSE).

The building is single-storey and is divided into two separate facilities. On the right is St. Brigid’s Hospice and on the left is Drogheda Memorial Hospital.

There is an enclosed, landscaped secure garden area as well as a larger garden area to the right and behind the building.

The garden areas, shared between the two services, are well maintained with lots of seating and garden features such as bird tables and raised flower beds.

The building is wheelchair accessible. Adequate parking for staff and visitors is provided to the front and side of the building.

Drogheda Memorial Hospital is located in the Curragh, County Kildare.

What is the Nursing Homes Support Scheme?

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme provides financial support towards the cost of long-term nursing home care. Under the scheme, people who need nursing home care have their income and assets assessed, and then make a contribution towards the cost of their care based on their assessment.

The HSE will pay the rest, if any, of the costs of their care in designated public and approved private nursing homes covered under the scheme. People can choose care in any of the nursing homes included in the scheme provided that the nursing home can cater for the person's particular needs and that it has a place available for the person.

As the budget for this scheme is fixed each year, at times a waiting list for financial support may be in place
