Luxury convalescent rooms are also available for those requiring a high standard of comfort with the added benefit of overnight visitor accommodation where required – subject to availability. All rooms are light, airy, tastefully decorated and spacious and are wheelchair friendly.
Our attractive lawned and secure seating area areas are popular places to sit back and relax or enjoy a gently walk. and the keen gardeners amongst our residents help keep it looking good.
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.
18 ensuite bedrooms Sitting room Dining room Sensory room
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.
Nursing Home Care
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.
Championing Quality of Life for Our Residents We Listen. We Care.
Residents are at the centre of everything we do in Mowlam Healthcare and residents and their families are at the centre of care planning. It is important to every member of our organisation that families are reassured and confident that their loved ones are receiving the very best of care. We want to help.
A Caring Culture
Led by our hearts – our team of skilled professionals, from Directors of Care, nurses and carers to catering and housekeeping are all characterised by the qualities of empathy, compassion, kindness, patience and understanding. We promote a culture of friendship and companionship in all our homes. We Listen. We Care.
Health & Wellbeing
Our care follows critical and clinical best practice, focussing on managing and improving long term medical condition, pain levels, mobility and maximising independence of our residents. We at all times respect the wishes of the person and very importantly, go at the pace our residents want to go at.
The Lived Experience
We are dedicated to involving residents in daily activities and therapies – cognitively stimulating, multi-sensory, physical therapy and social care – that help them feel valued, provide them with a sense of purpose and give them a sense of belonging. ‘Life Goes On’…with every comfort of home.
We promote choice at all times and do everything we can to enable our residents to enjoy a full life
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.
