Lisdarin Centre

Lisdarin Centre provides care of older people in Cavan. and its surrounding area. We are situated on the grounds of Cavan General Hospital and surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens.

We Aim To Provide A Safe, Caring Environment in Which All Our Residents Receive the Quality Standard They Require and Deserve. We provide residential accommodation for elderly people in two continuing care wards. In addition there is a rehabilitation accommodation in the centre which supports the acute services to assist a seamless discharge back to the community.

The centre also provides respite beds to facilitate a rest for the careers of theses residents in the community.

Our vision of person centred care is one of shared decision making by our residents, families and careers in a homely setting where each person’s uniqueness and right to choice is valued.
