Model of Care

Our philosophy of care is based on our social care model, to build on the individual’s strengths and capacity. At Bridhaven, we will support you to live the life you want. We respect your individuality and everything that makes you tick. You will always be supported with respect, integrity and choice to stay who you are, and keep living your best every day. It is really the little things that mean a lot.

Our resident & family liaison manager will take you on a tour of the home. This is a good opportunity for you to ask questions about the support available, such as dementia care or specialised nursing care. Think about what is important to you or your loved ones. During the visit, you will also be able to get a sense of what it is like to live here in terms of accommodation, meals and leisure activities.

Infection Control

Our priority at Brídhaven is the safety of our residents and staff. We ensure that all of our team are fully trained in infection prevention and control measures and have easy access to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Our ability to manage the Houses within Brídhaven as distinct and discrete living areas helps us to reduce the number of contacts across residents and staff. We have provided additional changing rooms and canteens to ensure social distancing and reduce crossover of staff.

Our team are well trained in infection prevention and control measures. We are in regular contact with the HSE, HIQA, and other healthcare experts. We provide continuous training on infection prevention and control for our team. Temperature and symptom checks are carried out twice daily and our vaccination uptake has been very high.

We have always maintained excellent PPE supplies and our team wear PPE as appropriate. We have meticulous house keeping cleaning procedures in place. Hand hygiene stations are positioned conveniently throughout Brídhaven, and FFP2 masks are readily available for staff and visitors alike.

Adrienn Zagyva is our Infection Control Nurse Specialist, ensuring all guidelines, processes and polices are adhered to, minimising risk to our residents.
