At Elm Hall, we care for people with a wide range of needs. Some of our residents live with a great degree of independence supported discreetly by staff with those little elements of day to day living that they find challenging. Others may need more intensive support which can include with daily care and activities of living. We can cater for most complex medical needs too such as catheter and stoma care, feeding tubes, palliative care and support for those living with dementia and alzheimers disease. Most important of all is the social care and activities provided to promote a good quality of life and to ensure every resident has a meaningful day filled with interraction and engagement.

Many of our residents are cared for with on-site support from the Community Liaison Team from Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown led by Dr. Siobhan Kennelly, Consultant Geriatrician. We have close links with the Community Mental Health Team also.
Medicines management is an important element of your care and we are proud to have partnered with Median Healthcare to provide a comprehensive medicines management service. The Clinical Pharmacist at Median is available to residents and their families to discuss medicines management and any queries they may have and provide education on best use of medicines. In conjunction with Dr. Doyle, the pharmacist and nursing staff review every residents medication on a quarterly basis or more often if required. Specific focus is given to ensuring medicines are used in a way that minimises risk of falls, reduces polypharmacy and respects residents rights.
