Kylemore House Nursing Home & Day Care Centre

Kylemore House Nursing Home, all residents are made feel at home and are introduced and integrated with follow residents on arrival thus making the transition as easy as possible.

Many years of experience working with the elderly has proven invaluable in easing the anxiety both with family member and our new residents during the first few week of care

Our extensive experience of 20 years in business, has given us a developed insight into the needs of our patrons.

Our original day-care facility was set up in 1994 to a very high standard and our re-location of the center to the front of the building has maintained this high standard and allowed us fine-tune the facilities. This gives both our staff and patrons a bright, happy and integral unit to attend on a daily basis.
