Our Homes

Welcome to Dunshaughlin Care Home

Work is progressing on a new 96-bedroom Grace Healthcare Nursing Home on the Dublin Road in Dunshaughlin, due to be completed later this year.

The project is a new purpose-built stand-alone residential care home with 96 en-suite bedrooms, including 18 accessible bedrooms with shared dining and day rooms, café and bar area, kitchens, laundry, staff and support areas in a three-storey building arranged around a secure landscaped courtyard garden on a 0.88-hectare site.

Ground was broken on the development in April 2022.

The project is being funded by Aedifica, who continue to expand its healthcare portfolio in Ireland. They have partnered with Grace Healthcare who will operate the nursing home, adding to their nine other existing nursing homes throughout Ireland.

The main contractor is Ganson. Brendan Merry & Partners are providing Project Management and Quantity Surveying Services and are working with RKD Architects and JV Tierney Services consultants on the project, which is due to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Staying active 

We’re strong believers in encouraging all our residents to be active physically and mentally, whatever their level of abilities. Our staff encourage a wide range of interests and hobbies, from art sand crafts to music and exercise.

Our Activity Coordinator is always on the lookout for new and diverting activities and entertainment. With plenty of options every week, there’s something for everyone, which helps create a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. Socialising is an important way for residents to stay connected – and we strongly encourage residents to enjoy creating their own social activities, from meeting with family at the pub to arranging trips to the theatre or even holidays, as muchas possible.

Putting our residents first

Our resident-centered philosophy underpins everything we do. Within the first 48 hours, our team willc reate an individualised care plan that is respectful of our resident’s personal likes and dislikes, as well as their medical and health needs. And because we know things change, we reassess these plans regularly.

Our policy is always to welcome feedback and input from a resident, as well as their family and friends. We believe strongly that an open, honest relationship will help us make sure residents in our care get the best possible support, at a time of life when they need it most.

Taking the first step

We understand taking the decision to move to a nursing home isn’t easy. It’s important to find a place you are comfortable with and you trust to care the way you do.

The first place to start is to make a call, and come for a visit with us. We welcome you and your loved one to come and see how we work and live so you can decide whether we’re right for your needs.
