Welcome to a unique and friendly care environment. Our dedicated and innovative approach, using the Household Model of Care, is designed to help our residents make the most of their day.
Our Home accommodates up to 123 residents across a range of conditions. Our vision is simple – to make living with us as close to ‘home’ as possible. It’s a fresh way of thinking, one that gives residents the freedom to live life on their terms, and helps them maintain their dignity and privacy while they receive the right care based on their individual needs.

When you think of Castleross, it’s more of a community than a nursing facility. Just as our residents are individuals, our home accommodations are too. Each home has its own patterns and rhythms, created by the dedicated staff and the people who live there.
We have four main houses, including one catering for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.
Each house has its own front door, and every accommodation includes comfortably sized bedrooms, most with ensuites, cosy dining and lounge areas, televisions, under floor heating with individual controls, direct dialing in each room, as well as internal and external landscaped courtyards. For our less mobile residents, there are wheelchair accessible walkways.
Maintaining a sense of independence is important to our residents, which is why our Household Model of Care has such a positive impact on their health and wellbeing. We encourage and support a wide range of activities that cater to the individual interests of residents, from playing cards and arts and crafts, to exercise programs. Each household has its own garden, cared for beautifully by residents who live there. And residents are welcome to have their own pet companions.
Through day to day living, our residents form great friendships with each other and with the staff, creating a warm and inclusive atmosphere.
This pioneering approach removes that ‘hospital’ feel that characterises so many nursing facilities. It gives residents a more homelike environment, while still providing exceptional care.
Cosy dwellings, a front door, a kitchen managed by a homemaker and a ‘Household Coordinator’, private garden spaces – all contribute to a sense of comforting domesticity. Staff wear their own clothes and residents are free to decorate their space with their own belongings. Importantly, every resident has the freedom to choose how to spend their days, in every aspect.
Many residents take comfort in the spiritual side of life. We are an inclusive facility, and welcome clergy of many faiths to minister to the needs of our residents. Talk with us to discuss how we can help your family member maintain connections with their church or beliefs in a way that works best for them.
Castleross is situated on the outskirts of Carrickmacross, a thriving market town in south Monaghan.
We are on the doorstep of Dublin, Louth, Meath and Cavan and just an hour’s drive from Belfast.
