Our Home

Our home is family run. We have a proven track record in the nursing home area and oversee all aspects of the services provided to our resident's.
 
We are on hand to ensure our resident’s receive hotel standard accommodation with the friendly atmosphere of a well run "Home from Home".

We regularly meet with relatives to discuss their loved ones plan of care and encourage family involvement as much as possible within the home.
 
The atmosphere is relaxed and as we are a smaller home we can provide for each resident’s particular needs and our resident’s build up exceptional relationships with the staff, many of whom become firm friends.

We run various social functions throughout the year in the home, which vary from our Annual Remembrance Mass to Annual Resident’s Christmas Party. We openly welcome family and friend participation in each of our social functions. 

Extensive work has been done in upgrading facilities in our Nursing Home throughout the past few years, with us most recently offering new single en-suite bedrooms, along with various other rooms from single to semi private en-suites. 

We plan to further invest in various other areas of the home to ensure top class care without losing the friendly, family run atmosphere. 
 
It is our honest belief, that there will always be a place for professional family run homes where the proprietors are involved in the day to day running of the home and are available to meet with our resident’s and their families to ensure they are supported and informed at all times.
