Conna Nursing Home was home to my dad for his last three years. He was given the highest quality care and medical attention. What really made his final years so happy was the friendship and love that was genuinely shown to him by management and staff.
I just wish to thank you all so sincerely for looking after me so well during my convalescence here. I feel like fat superman after all the beautiful food. This is more than a rest home. It is also a beautiful top-class grade A hotel. I will always call back for a daily visit and give my highest recommendation to everyone.

How do I go about choosing a nursing home?
The first step in choosing a nursing home starts with finding nursing homes in the most convenient area. In some cases, that may be near your home, but if family members are far away, you may want to consider a nursing home nearer to them. Finding the right nursing home can take some time.
A visit with any nursing home you are considering should be at the top of your “choosing a nursing home checklist.” Make an appointment before you go so you can meet with one of the staff members. It is important to visit nursing homes so you can compare the quality of care, teams and facilities each home offer.
The financial side of nursing care can be overwhelming. There are many financial options available including The Nursing Homes Support Scheme (Fair Deal) and we are more than happy to discuss all your options with you
