We provide excellent nursing care in our purpose built facilities.
Our innovative and award winning approach led to a complete overhaul of our buildings and culture. Our Household Model of Care breaks down the traditional facility into households. Each has their own front door for privacy, kitchen, living rooms, private bedrooms, comfortable dining rooms, private back gardens and plenty of extra spaces. Creating a wonderful family environment where life can be lived to the full is a priority for us. We provide a very positive experience for people in a place they can live and flourish.
We work with Dementia Care Matters to implement the highest standards of care available in Ireland, tailored to the specific needs of people living with dementia and their families. There are specialist dementia care households in both Moorehall Lodge Ardee and Moorehall Lodge Drogheda. Here, we provide specialist care to include activities for residents with dementia-related conditions.
We are Ireland’s first accredited Butterfly Centre. This approach to care focuses on emotions and on the fact that feelings matter most. It is a truly person centred approach that allows people to be themselves. This approach to care means fully understanding our residents and their life experiences so that we can understand their behaviours and feelings towards everyday life in Moorehall. It supports the full living experience of our residents. Empathy is at the heart the Butterfly approach to care. The resident and how they are feeling and responding to situations needs to be at the heart of care rather than dealing with specific task based activities. It’s about our team connecting with residents and facilitating them to control their own day. This can have a huge impact on quality of life for those with dementia.
Our specialist dementia care extends through our range of services at Drogheda and Ardee. We all live in the moment – moments matter.
At Moorehall Living care is delivered on a partnership basis where residents’ families, our team and health care experts come together to provide the best for our residents. Moorehall Living is a place where your family can be confident that your loved ones happiness and well being is our focus everyday. Our highly experienced team will care for your loved one to the highest standards and will take the time to get to know and understand exactly how they like things to be.
We maintain robust infection control but we also prioritise our residents dignity, privacy and autonomy. We are in regular contact with the HSE, HIQA and other healthcare experts. Ongoing training on infection prevention and control is in place for our team. We have supplies of PPE to use as appropriate. Our house keeping teams are meticulous and hand hygiene pumps are dotted everywhere. Life in Moorehall is always adapting in response to our residents’ needs and interests. Our activities have always been decided based on discussion and input from our residents. People also naturally gravitate towards people with common interests so running appropriate activities in smaller groups has not been an issue. We manage this and pair residents according to people they socialise with. Visiting restrictions are in place in line with HSE requirements.
