We aim to make life at St. Gobnait's a very fulfilling one.
Our home is decorated with our residents in mind and we encourage residents to personalise their rooms. The corridors are bright and appealing with different colour Door-Cals on each door to represent a person's own front door. The bright colours are also more easily identifiable for people with dementia who may have lost the skill to recognise numbers.
We have Residents who love walking on the country road and will often enjoy a chat with neighbours they meet along the way. We also have two visiting dogs (Bonnie and Mollie) which are always welcome with open arms along with their lovely volunteer owners, Brenda and Sinead. John, another volunteer, visits twice a week to chat with our residents or take them for a walk.
The children from the local national school, Ballyagran, come to visit us on a regular basis. It's a joy to watch the interaction between the generations.Read more about Ballyagran NS
We are always happy to indulge in some cake at St. Gobnait's so we don't need any excuse to hold a party! We enjoy music sessions with Dan every Saturday.
Other activities carried out include baking, reminiscence therapy, use of memory boards, talking mats and Yoga with Noreen.View our photo gallery
