Our vibrant community brings an enjoyable, caring and safe atmosphere for nursing home care. We understand it can be a substantial change for everyone involved and that is why we provide whatever advice, help, and support we can to each resident and family along the way. 
  • Dementia & Alzheimer Care
Elm Green Nursing Home is designed to be a dementia friendly home with specialized care for residents living with dementia, Alzheimer’s, and other memory loss conditions. We work without Residents and their families to get to know then and familiarize ourselves with their life, experiences, passions, and preference to really understand them so we can offer personalized care and nursing plans designed to offer everyone as much mental memory stimulation as possible, providing a space where they can thrive and enjoy their days with dignity and respect. 
  • Respite, Convalescent, Post Operative and Short-Term Care

Some of our Residents are with us for short term respite or convalescent care to either enable a carer to take a short break, holiday, or rest, or to help assist individuals with recuperation and recovery after surgery or an illness until they can manage again at home on their own.

Elm Green is registered with all the major medical insurance companies including VHI and Irish Life Health. See here for finance information.
