The match

Anja died without pain relief, oxygen and family. The state’s elderly home is the dumping grounds for the homeless and the unwanted.

Health and safety

Health and Safety

Yes, you have guessed, there is no such thing as health and safety standards.

They are too poor for standards.

The match

Dilapidated wheel chairs get stuck in holes in worn down linoleum and chunks of wood is missing from wooden floors, turning a stroll into a hazardous obstacle course.



The match

Patients eat from tin plates. Their daily allowance for food is €3.00. Their diet consists of stale bread dunked in watery soup, speckled with particles of rice.

The match

With plumbing that no longer functions, having a bath or a shower is impossible. Buckets of water are used to wash the elderly.

Statement from the state s home director

Statement from the State’s Home Director

“So many people have come, looked around, made promises and they were never seen again.”

Confey student s message

Confey Student’s Message

“We are going out to bring smiles to their faces, to hold their hands, to wash their feet in scented water, to put brand new bed linen beneath their wounds and to dress them in personal bed wear that we unpack from wrappers in their presence.”

Transition Year Students

The challenges ahead for confey students

The Challenges Ahead for Confey Students

While one crew of students is attending to patient’s personal needs, another crew will be tearing 40 year old tiles off bathroom walls and floors, and with the professional help of an Irish builder, they will be giving the residents a beautiful new bathroom with a walk in shower, suitable for double amputees.

Paint brushes await the students to re-decorate their community rooms. They are assured that there is an endless supply of buckets of water, detergents and scrubbing materials to clean down walls, doors, windows and floors.

The students have seven days of the most rewarding work imaginable ahead of them, and they are looking forward to every minute of the challenges ahead.
