Public Nursing Home

Clonakilty Community Hospital

Clonakilty, Co. Cork

Clonakilty Community Hospital is a public unit consisting of 2 blocks of buildings dating back to the 1800s. The unit provides care for those requiring long term care, respite, community support, palliative and dementia care.

The unit offers accommodation for up to 153 residents spread across 5 units which are designated male and female wards. The residential unit has a warm and friendly atmosphere which nurtures a safe and comfortable environment for residents to feel at home in.

To achieve this optimal atmosphere, the hospital has implemented the ‘Household’ model of care meaning that the residents become part of a shared household, deciding their own routines as opposed to living in a sterile hospital atmosphere. The unit portrays the feeling of a home from 50 or 60 years ago as opposed to a resident nursing home.

To create this feeling of home, residents are encouraged to bring personal belongings and furniture. The kitchen and dining room are a central part to the residents lives, just like in a regular house. The model promotes independence and individuality. Residents can also help out around the unit from baking in the kitchen to doing some work in the garden space.

Clonakilty Community Hospital is located on the N71 road on the Cork side of Clonakilty town.
