St Doolagh’s Park Care & Rehabilitation Centre caters for residents who require long or medium term care with a primary diagnosis of an Acquired Brain Injury. An Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) can be the result of a road traffic accident, a stroke, brain hemorrhage, infection, tumor, or head trauma. Some of our residents require medium term care before they move onto another care setting such as assisted independent living.

St. Doolagh’s Park is situated in a beautiful parkland setting off the Malahide Road, in Balgriffin, Dublin 17, close to Malahide Village and Swords. Close to the last exit of the M50 motorway, the airport and the M1 Motorway and a regular bus service is provided at the entrance to St. Doolagh’s Park.

Awards: CARF ACCREDITATION (2022 to 2025)

St Doolagh’s Park Care and Rehabilitation Centre has been awarded accreditation by CARF Europe for its Residential Rehabilitation Brain Injury Speciality Programme and Person Centred Long Term Care Community. CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) is a worldwide independent, non-profit accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of services through a consultative accreditation process that centres on enhancing the lives of the persons served.

By pursuing and achieving accreditation, St Doolagh’s Park Care and Rehabilitation Centre has demonstrated that it meets international standards for quality and is committed to pursuing excellence. The accreditation decision of three years represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and demonstrates that St Doolagh’s Park has substantial conformance to the CARF standards.

An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and accountable. The only other organizations in Ireland that have CARF accreditation are the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dublin, Headway and ABI Ireland. This is a great achievement by the team at St. Doolaghs.
