Care of the Elderly

Highfield Healthcare is one of the largest providers of care to older persons in Ireland. Here in Highfield we care greatly for our residents. It is our goal to provide the best quality of life for all of our residents in an environment which is homely, safe and highly specialised.

We specialise in providing care to those with dementia. Our state of the art Alzheimer’s Care Centre opened in 2012. It has 154 beds and 6 specialist Alzheimer’s Care units each providing person centred care to those with complex needs.

We also provide long term care for the frail elderly in Elmhurst Nursing Home. This 49 bed facility is ideally situated in a tranquil environment surrounded by nature.

All of our units have a team of specialised nurses, health care assistants and doctors who work alongside our consultant psychiatrists, occupational therapists, and activities co-ordinators. Our staff are trained in delivering the highest standard of care.

We pride ourselves on our focus on person centred care, meaning that we tailor our programmes to meet the needs and preferences of our residents. We deliver a wide variety of activities and also offer a befriending service through our volunteer programme.

What to Expect

Upon inquiry, we will identify the right unit for you and your family member, show you around our facility and carry out an initial assessment to identify how best we can cater for your specific and individual needs. We will develop person centred care plans to address all of your needs once you come to live with us.
