Description:
The National Council for the Aged recognises the growing contribution of private and voluntary nursing homes to the care of the aged in the Republic of Ireland today. About one-third of all those aged over 65 who are in long-stay institutional care in Ireland live in a nursing home. The number of nursing 'homes, particularly privately owned and commercially run, has risen substantially over the past decade. With nearly 50 per cent of these homes being less than ten years old, it is not perhaps surprising that no comprehensive, up-to-date data on these homes are currently available.
