Care Needs Assessment

The Care Needs Assessment identifies whether or not you need long term nursing home care. Its purpose is to ensure that long-term nursing home care is necessary and is the right choice for you. The assessment will consider whether you can be supported to continue living at home or whether long-term nursing home care is more appropriate.

The Care Needs Assessment will be carried out by appropriate healthcare professionals, for example, a nurse etc., appointed by the HSE. An assessment may be completed at any time in a hospital or a community setting such as your own home. The assessment will include consideration of the following:

• your ability to carry out the activities of daily living, e.g. bathing, shopping, dressing and moving around
• The medical, health and personal social services being provided to you or available to you both at the time of the carrying out of the assessment and generally the family and community support available to you, and your wishes and preferences

Please note that the assessment may include a physical examination by a healthcare professional.

You must be assessed as needing nursing home care in order to be eligible for either State Support or the Nursing Home Loan.
