Care Services

We want ‘To care for our Residents as WE would like our loved ones to be cared for’

Tearmainn Bhride Nursing Home is a family run establishment which is committed to providing first class standards of care in a warm and homely environment. Our service is centred on the person by using the holistic model in our care; we promote respect, empowerment and dignity of the older persons in a homely environment which also offers our Residents choice, privacy and independence.

This quality service is provided by having individual care plans for our Residents following full assessments of their individual needs. We totally understand that the decision to move into long-term care can be a stressful one, and we want to make this transition as smooth as possible. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of care to elderly residents in a warm and homely environment.


Making the decision to come into long term care is sometimes not easy and that is why our philosophy is to provide home from home care for our residents. The happiness of our residents is paramount, and we understand the importance of taking the time to get to know our residents, what their likes, dislikes and preferences are.

Every resident has a tailor made care plan for them. This is devised on arrival to our home and can be done in the company of a relative or chosen representative. We firmly believe that each individual in as far as it is possible decides how they wish to live and be cared for.

At Teamainn Bhride we know that chronic illness can be better managed in a well-developed multi-disciplinary setting. We can provide the highest quality of life within a safe and caring environment. All of our staff are experienced and fully trained in the care of residents with maximum dependency. We have a programme of activities and therapies which are designed to provide stimulation whilst dispelling anxiety.

We encourage family involvement as much as possible in the initial assessment and in the establishment of a Care Plan to ensure continuity of care and to guarantee that our staff fully understand the needs of the person they are caring for.

We at Tearmainn Bhide know that caring for a person with dementia can be very demanding but we can help you to support your loved one by providing full time care, give advice, guidance and support to you during the transition.

We carry out a full assessment and then develop a person centred support plan which is implemented by our experienced staff.

End of life care aims to support and to provide the best quality of life to those with a terminal illness or terminal condition that has become advanced, progressive and incurable. At this very difficult time, our staff are experienced in working with the relevant healthcare teams and associated professionals to ensure a co-ordinated and seamless service is provided. All spiritual and emotional care is respected and are an integral part of our service.

We work closely with families to ensure the choices and priorities of our residents are at the centre of our care. We also believe that it is important that the resident’s family are also supported and cared for during this time.


As we are living longer the number of people who are being cared for at home is increasing, so does the number of people dedicating their time to caring for their loved ones at home. This can sometimes lend to caregivers suffering from exhaustion as they have less and less time to refresh themselves.

It not always easy to call on other family members to assist that is why we understand the need to provide a facility for both the person being cared for and the carer to have a break.

We provide Respite care, which is short-term care. This temporary relief gives those who care for a family member at home a much needed break. It gives them an opportunity to take a holiday or simply just have time for themselves.

At Tearmainn Bhride we use the person centred care approach for each of our residents and we have seen that there is great benefit to both the person being cared for and the caregiver’s health and wellbeing when they avail of respite care.

If you or your loved one is currently living at home and would benefit from some company, we can offer you to come to us for a few hours every day or even for a weekend.

While you are with us you can avail of all of our services and get the opportunity to allow you to reacquaint with old friends and make new friends and expand your interests.


family admissions meeting

Prior to admission the Person in Charge will make an assessment of dependency level and suitability of the nursing home. This can be done in a hospital or at person’s home.

In most cases the person and their family will be encouraged to come and view the nursing home. Our Director of Nursing will be happy to meet with you and your family to give you a tour of our home and discuss any personal needs you may have. In order to ensure you receive our uninterrupted attention we would ask that you kindly schedule an appointment in the first instance.

A care plan will be devised to meet individual needs and a Residents Guide is supplied. Request for emergency situations will be assessed on a case by case basis and may be accommodated within the maximum capacity of 29 residents.
