The Nursing Home is family run and a family atmosphere is very apparent to all who visit or come to stay at the Little Flower Nursing Home. The building is constructed to health board guidelines and fire regulations. It is architect designed for nursing home living and is eligible for Nursing Homes Support Scheme/ Fair Deal.
Two large screen TV's are situated in the bright, spacious day room where sporting events, news and current affairs programmes or your favourite soap opera can be viewed in comfort. Alternatively, every bedroom has its own TV point should a resident prefer to view their favourite shows in the comfort of their own room. The highlight of the week is the Traditional music sessions provided for all birthday parties and other celebrations. This is hosted by Joans' father, Peter Gardiner along with other local musicians. The large Day Room provides the ideal setting for the set dancers.
A telephone is available to all residents and is located in the nurses office. Alternatively, Eircom can provide a private line to any residents bedroom. (This is not included in fees).
The Little Flower Nursing Home is committed to the highest possible standards in residential nursing home care with all care staff being highly trained, having completed their FETAC Level 5. This is also illustrated in the high ratio of staff to residents. The staff of The Little Flower Nursing Home are friendly and extremely helpful. Our qualified Nurses are professional and diligent in their duties while also maintaining the friendly atmosphere of the home.
All meals are prepared in a state-of-the-art, modern commercial kitchen and preparation area. We pride ourselves on our top quality home cooked meals and baked products, such as home made apple and rhubarb tarts and crumbles, home made brown bread, scones, cakes, pies and quiches. All produce served at the Little Flower Nursing Home is of the highest quality and sourced locally whenever possible. Residents are encouraged to part-take in the Green Finger activities. A large poly-tunnel is provided in the garden where fruit and vegetables are grown which in turn are used in the kitchen.
