Regina House Community Nursing Unit is a single-storey building, which opened in 1972 as a welfare home.

As the dependency levels of the residents increased over the years, the unit became a residential centre for older people.

The centre has places for 33 residents.

There are 23 single bedrooms with no en suite facilities.
One twin and two three-bedded rooms have an en suite toilet and wash-hand basin.

Two single palliative care suites with en suite assisted shower and toilet facilities are provided.

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

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
