Why support the NRH Foundation?
The NRH Foundation is a registered charity (CHY6750/ CRA 20013196) focused on raising funds towards specialist projects, equipment and research that will help make a direct difference to the lives of the children and adults in the National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH) Dún Laoghaire, now and in the future. We would not be able to provide this vital support without the help your donations, fundraising and sponsored events.
Who are the NRH?
As the only service of its type in the country, the NRH are a fully publicly funded hospital (with no private beds), providing high quality care and treatment to patients on the basis of clinical need.
What does the NRH do?
The NRH is the only Hospital in Ireland providing complex medical specialist rehabilitation services for the national population. They provide 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 Rehabilitation
- 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. Our focus is to support the NRH to provide treatment programmes dedicated to achieving the highest, safest level of independence possible for each person following their injury or illness. 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.
