Staff

St.Theresa’s team of staff are highly and appropriately trained for their various positions.  We believe that regular on-going Training and Up-skilling is an integral and inherent dimension to maintaining our excellent standards of care for all our residents.  St Theresa’s Nursing Home prides itself on the friendly courteous staff, and their empathy with the needs of those in their care.

As a family-owned home, Proprietor, Service Provider and Director of Nursing, Nora Grogan is a Registered General Nurse with over 4 decades of nursing and nurse management experience.  She is actively involved in the management of the nursing home on a day-to-day basis.  Her youngest daughter, Yvonne Moroney, is also a Registered General Nurse, and the Person in Charge & Assistant -Director of Nursing.  She has a Diploma in Palliative Care, is a CPR/AED Instructor; a qualified trainer for Manual Handling and Training Tutor for FETAC Level 5 Carer Course.  Recently she has completed the SONAS aPc course.  Nora’s eldest daughter, Úna Ruddle, is involved with St.Theresa’s on a part-time basis, and is primarily associated with issues relating to Administration.  Her professional qualifications and background is based in Business and Education. Her involvement in Traditional Irish Music also complements her role as Activities Co-ordinator.

Marie Shannon is the Nursing Home Administrator and manages all general day-to-day queries and accounts.

The Nursing Staff are all qualified and registered with An Bord Altranais, and all have experience from varying nursing backgrounds.  They are all actively engaged in the implementation and operation of policies and procedures, which are reviewed as a team to ensure best practice and compliance.

The Care Attendants are fully-oriented and trained for their various nursing home duties.  Many of them have completed their FETAC Level 5 Carer qualification, and others are in the process of completing it.

The Cooks are very competent in their Kitchen, with many years experience of producing nutritious meals!  They have completed the Food Hygiene course.  They ensure they know each residents’ ‘likes & dislikes’ and endeavour to satisfy all dietary requests.   The Cooks also lead a ‘Baking’ activity, for those interested, as part of the Activity Programme.

Many staff are involved in leading or assisting in many of the Activities; singing, dancing, conversation, Beauty Treatments, Gentle Exercise etc.  This enables the residents to become more familiar with the staff and feel more at ease and at home within St Theresa’s.

All staff receive training for the following on a regular basis; Fire Safety & emergency procedures;  Health &Safety procedures; Manual Handling training; CPR/AED; and modules on Elder Abuse and Challenging Behaviour.
