Welcome to Douglas Nursing Home “home from home”!
Douglas Nursing Home is a family owned and run care facility catering for the needs of older adults who wish to retire to the safety and care of a retirement home. We also cater for people of all ages who need medical care or physical support in some or all activities of daily living. We have facilities for long stay, short stay, respite, care and rehabilitation.
Douglas Nursing Home is registered by HIQA. We are VHI, BUPA listed and are members of the NHI – Nursing Homes Ireland.
Douglas Nursing Home is a purpose built ground floor facility with single rooms, single en suite rooms and one double room. All rooms have hot and cold water, television point, telephone point and call bell. The rooms are decorated in a homely way and residents are free to bring in their own effects and small furniture to make it their own.
The staff in Douglas Nursing Home are highly trained and dedicated to the care of the residents. There is a high staff to resident ratio and we provide the highest standard of our care planning. Our motto is “dignity and respect at all times”. We accommodate both female and male residents of any age, not under 18 and usually over 65 years, but not exclusively, with the following needs:
- General care
- Respite care
- Long term care
- Short term care
- Palliative care.
There is at least one qualified nurse on at all times and a team of care assistants, catering staff and household staff to care for the residents every need.
The Matron, Janet Woodward, is a highly qualified nurse with 25 years of nursing experience in numerous fields of nursing including elderly care, oncology and care of the terminally ill.
