Dying in a nursing home

This resource ‘When someone you care about is dying in a nursing home – what to expect’ booklet was created in April 2020 for our COVID-19 Care & Inform hub and has been recently updated (May 2021). We understand this is a very emotional and challenging time for you. We hope this booklet will help make this time a little easier.

If there’s anything worrying you or the person living in the nursing home, talk to the healthcare team (Nurses, Healthcare Assistants, GP etc.). You might be worried that now isn’t a good time to do this. However, the healthcare team is available to provide information and answer any questions you might have.

We understand COVID-19 is a source of enormous stress and anxiety right now. This useful booklet includes information about COVID-19 and links to HSE websites. This is where the most up-to-date and reliable information can be found.
