Description:
The Eastern Regional Health Authority is charged with putting in place "systems procedures and practices to enable it to monitor and evaluate services" Section 8, 3c Health (Eastern Regional Health Authority) Act, 1999. As part of the service planning process, key areas in each care group were identified for evaluation. In services for older persons, residential services were identified. A working group was convened to oversee this evaluation. Nominations were sought from the Area Boards and voluntary organisations as well as a Public Health representative and a chair from the ERHA. A residential service was defined by the group as: A long stay residential service that is provided to older persons including those with cognitive impairments over the age of sixty-five in a communal residential domestic type setting. This includes community units, Area Health Board hospitals/homes, welfare homes, acute general hospital long stay units and voluntary long stay hospitals/homes.
