NHI Care Awards Open for Nominations

Communities across Ireland are being called upon to nominate nursing home residents and staff in the 2011 Nursing Homes Ireland Care Awards to celebrate and acknowledge the excellence in the nursing home sector.

The closing date for the NHI Care Awards, in association with Homecare Medical Supplies, is Friday July 29th and application forms are available on www.nhicareawards.ie.

The awards will be presented by Minister for Health James Reilly at a gala ceremony in Citywest Hotel, Dublin, on November 10th, and the nine categories have been chosen to reflect not just the professionals delivering care, but also to reflect the achievements of residents, support staff, and how well a nursing home has integrated into its surrounding community.
