Person-centred specialist care for people living with dementia
Knowing that a loved one is receiving care, attention, stimulation, and support, in a secure community brings great peace of mind for families.
We are dedicated to involving residents with memory loss in meaningful activities that help them feel valued and provide them with a sense of purpose.
Daily activities are specifically identified to nurture the spirit of residents by preserving life skills which are familiar to residents, including tasks that they have enjoyed doing in the past and which still bring them a sense of purpose in the present.
Our Memory Care team design personalised programmes with multi-sensory experiences, including exercise, gardening, intergenerational activities, pet therapy, depending on what benefits each individual the most.
Activities are organised on a one-to-one basis or in small groups, where residents have similar interests.

Our Memory Care Facilities
18 ensuite bedrooms
We have a large enclosed secure garden which includes a sensory/dementia-friendly garden and orchard with apple trees.
There are sensory walkways, bird feeders and a patio area where on a fine day we have barbecues or just relax and enjoy the good weather.
Some of our residents are with us for short-term respite care after acute medical care in a hospital, where they are ready to be discharged, but are not quite well enough to manage at home on their own yet. We offer skilled, individualised rehabilitation care, nursing and associated therapies.
Our long term residents make Kilcolgan their new home-from-home when they are no longer able to live alone, either through illness or disability. We offer best-practice medical, nursing, rehabilitation and therapeutic services in a nurturing, safe and homely environment.

Health & Wellbeing
Living with Purpose
We encourage our residents to engage, enjoy, express, and live as full, independent and active a life as possible with us. Our dedicated activity coordinators and social care practitioners develop an extensive weekly calendar of activities, based on residents’ expressed preferences, and tailored to individual needs.
We provide support and stimulation through a blend of activities and therapies that enrich the body, mind and spirit. On a typical week residents enjoy music, singing and dance activities, light exercise, games, gardening, excursions, beauty pampering, and social gatherings. Residents like to spend time pursuing their own individual hobbies or interests, as well as join in on group activities in our communal and quiet lounges.
Our activities programming is designed to bring together residents, staff, family and friends – and to turn each day into an opportunity for our residents to Live With Purpose.
