Today marks the beginning of Nursing Homes Week, an initiative that highlights the positivity of nursing home care in Ireland.

Dubbed 'Gran-National', the week-long celebration aims to connect grandparents with their grandchildren and encourage them to share memories and stories.

Tadhg Daly, Chief Executive of Nursing Homes Ireland, said: "Gran-National day is an opportunity for grandchildren and great-grandchildren to visit their family in nursing homes.
