Admissions for people with special needs

Referrals generally come from the HSE, but occasionally we are approached directly by families or other agencies. You can request a referral through the HSE Disability Services.

You are welcome to visit, by appointment only. When a referral results in a placement, all placements are subject to a trial period which will last twelve weeks. At the end of the trial period, the placement will be reviewed and if all parties are in agreement, a place in the community will be offered to the individual.

A Permanent Home

When the trial period has ended and the resident is offered a permanent residential placement they can be assured that this will be their permanent home for as long as they wish, unless through changing circumstances, the community is unable to meet their needs or they decide they want to live elsewhere.

What are the Costs Involved?

Residents contribute 50% of their weekly disability allowance. Day care costs vary.
