Reviewer Connection to Kingscourt Nursing Home
Submitted from a Website Submission by Dorothy K on Saturday 3 December 2016. Relates to November 2016.
My mother moved to Kingscourt Nursing Home for end of life care. The manager and her deputy were very helpful in expediting the arrangements. She had a lovely room (albeit small) and care was taken to ensure the correct type of bed was available. We were made to feel welcome and free to visit at any time. Excellent personal care was provided to Mum. She suddenly deteriorated the morning after arriving. Staff immediately informed my husband and we were able to be with her constantly. I slept on the floor of her room that night. We were able to come and go during the evening and overnight, despite staff having to unlock the front door for us when they were busy. When she died they were sensitive, sympathetic, and helpful in making the necessary arrangements.
I cannot comment on food or activities as we did not use these but I observed that there was plenty for residents to do and company for them in the lounge. I assume food would be good; I was given buttered toast the morning after I stayed overnight.
