Convalescent Care

At Riverbrook Nursing & Respite Care we operate Convalescent Care & Post Operative Rehabilitative Care Programmes designed to  assist individuals with recuperation and recovery after surgery, or serious illness.

Because each individual is different the length of stay can vary between one week and twelve weeks.  Riverbrook Nursing & Respite Care is registered with VHI Healthcare, Laya Healthcare & Aviva Healthcare who under certain insurance plans contribute towards a certain amount of the cost of a convalescence stay.

We work in conjunction with the major hospitals locally and further away, welcoming patients in need of controlled and safe a step down from acute care. This way patients can be closer to family and to friends, returning to be near their own homes following surgeries in Dublin, Cork, Galway and sometimes further away.

The multidisciplinary team consists of our Healthcare Professionals, the individual resident, the family Doctor, physiotherapist, occupational therapists, community welfare nurses, our own Carers  and other supports.

This team provides:

  • nursing care
  • physical therapy
  • health promotion, and prevention of illness, or injury advice
  • catering and nutritional care
  • medical services in collaboration with the residents GP
  • social activities
  • laundry and housekeeping services
