Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the waiting list for Residential Care? At BallyCara we approach vacancies with a “who is most in need” basis. We ask that you let the BallyCara staff know when you have any major health changes so that we have the most up-to-date information. Likewise, if you find placement elsewhere and wish to be taken off our waiting list, please let us know.

Who is the doctor at BallyCara? When you come into permanent Residential Care, we ask that you talk to your doctor and see if they would like to visit BallyCara on a regular basis. If they cannot visit regularly, then we are happy to recommend one of the doctors that regularly visits BallyCara.

How often can family and friends visit? BallyCara has no set visiting hours for family and friends. We are more than happy for family and friends to visits as often as they wish.
