What is the procedure for admission?

After initial inquiry to the home the prospective resident and their relatives will be invited to view Nazareth House and meet with a member of the management team.

At this initial meeting information will be exchanged to ensure that a placement at Nazareth House is suitable for everybody concerned.

Following this viewing - and subject to room availability - our qualified and experienced care team will undertake a full pre-admission assessment at your home.

Once the pre-admission assessment has been completed, you will be informed in writing if Nazareth House can meet your individually identified needs.

Once this has been confirmed and contracts signed, a mutually convenient admission date is agreed. All new admissions are subject to an initial month's trial to ensure the resident is happy with their choice of home and Nazareth House are assured that they can meet the individual's needs.
