Why support the NRH Foundation?

NRH Patients and Staff

The NRH Foundation is the registered charity dedicated to raising vital funds for the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH).  The NRH Foundation focuses on raising support towards specialist projects, equipment and research that will help make a direct difference to the lives of the patients, both adults and children, in the NRH.  We would not be able to provide this vital support without the help of your donations and fundraising, like taking part in the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon.

Who are the NRH?

The NRH is the only service of its type in the country, a fully publicly funded hospital (with no private / semi private beds), providing high quality care & treatment on the basis of clinical need.

What do the NRH do?

The NRH Dún Laoghaire is the only Hospital in Ireland providing complex medical specialist rehabilitation services for the national population.  The Hospital provides a comprehensive range of specialist rehabilitation services to children and adults who, as a result of an accident, illness or injury, require rehabilitation services in the following areas of specialty:

  • Paediatric Family Centred RehabilitationNRH Foundation Paediactric Playground
  • The Brain Injury Programme  (including Stroke)
  • The Spinal Injury Programme
  • Prosthetic, Orthotic and Limb Absence Rehabilitation (POLAR)

How does the NRH help?

Rehabilitation is a lifelong investment in people; it is an educational process of active change by which a person learns the knowledge and skills needed to enable them to participate meaningfully in family and community life.  The NRH strives to minimise the impact of a person’s disability and optimise their potential, while also helping their families too.

For many of the children and adults in the NRH, their journey with them is often at a pivotal point in their lives.  Upon arrival to the NRH, many patients will have experienced a very traumatic and often life-changing event.  Through rehabilitation they often identify the new path that they will now follow in life’s journey.
