St Brendan’s Care Home opened in January 1980. It is joined to St Brendan’s Hospital, albeit a separate entity in terms of management and purpose. St Brendan’s has 8 permanent places, and 2 respite places. The Care Home and Hospital share the kitchen and laundry.
Day Care is also provided in both parts of the Care Home, for Older People who remain living in their own homes in the wider community.
The Care Home is non-denominational and resident’s religious and spiritual needs are respected.
Inspection Report compiled by the Care Inspectorate can be obtained at https://www.careinspectorate.com/ (Opens in a new window or downloads a file), or alternatively please ask St Brendan’s for a copy. This will provide an objective analysis of the quality of the Care Home.
We recommend that you contact St Brendan’s direct to arrange a visit. This will enable you to ask further questions and get a feel for the Care Home. Our Assessment and Care Management colleagues based in your Local Social Work Office will be able to give you further information regarding the Assessment process, and Eligibility Criteria.
