in Association with Homecare Medical Supplies,
Celebrating Excellence in Care


The Nursing Homes Ireland Care Awards are the premier national celebration of the outstanding care being delivered in nursing homes in communities across Ireland. The prestigious event honours and recognises outstanding commitment in the delivery of exceptional care to older people and others in need of continuous care.

The purpose of the Care Awards is to promote best practice within the nursing home sector and pay tribute to individuals who demonstrate outstanding excellence and dedication within their field of work. Nursing Homes play a key role in meeting Irish people’s health and care requirements and over 22,000 people are employed in the private and voluntary nursing home sector.

The Awards

Hundreds of people from the nursing home and healthcare sectors will gather for the fourth annual NHI Care Awards at Citywest Hotel, Dublin, on November 7th 2013. The Care Awards nine categories reflect the diversity and many facets of nursing home life, recognising not only outstanding staff, but also resident contribution and how well the nursing home integrates into its local community. The Care Awards recognise nurses, carers and ancillary workers who are going beyond the call of duty in providing excellent care. Others honour best practices in catering and nutrition, social and recreational activities, community initiative, innovations in dementia care and resident contribution to nursing home life.

Staff, residents, relatives, those who engage with the home and anyone else with a direct experience of a nursing home are all invited to nominate anyone they feel deserving of an award. Nominating is easy, and you can do so by filling out the application form.

An independent judging panel, drawn from diverse backgrounds and differing fields, will spend many hours and days assessing, adjudicating and interviewing nominees before the winners are chosen.

Leading Awards

The NHI Care Awards have been an outstanding success since they were first staged in 2010 and the feedback from nursing homes, residents and people with experiences of nursing homes reflects the positivity of nursing home life and the excellent care provided in homes in communities across Ireland.

The success of the event is reflected in the growing levels of interest in the NHI Care Awards. Last year’s saw over 350 nominations submitted from communities across Ireland for the nine award categories. Over 400 people attended the prestigious awards ceremony at the Citywest Hotel, Dublin on November 15th, which was fronted by RTE presenter Marty Whelan. Members of the public are becoming increasingly aware of the Care Awards, and accounted for a significant number of the 2012 nominations.

In a short space of time, the NHI Care Awards have established themselves as leading awards in the healthcare sector and 2013 is set to build on the momentum of the previous three events. We encourage all in the nursing home sector and wider beyond to embrace this celebration of excellence in care. Join us in honouring and rewarding outstanding care!
