St. Brendan's Home is a new development by the Health Service Executive (HSE). It is a purpose-built residential centre with 100 places.

The new centre was built in 2010 and opened in September 2011 when residents from the older St. Brendans centre transferred into the new unit.

There are four care areas, two located on the ground floor on either side of the main reception and two on the first floor.

They are called Crannog, Sliabh Aughty, Cooreen and Knock Ash - inspiration for the names came from the lake and surrounding areas.

Each care area accommodates 25 residents.

Care for people with dementia in a safe environment supported by Psychiatrist of Old Age.

There are 21 single and two double bedrooms in each of the four care areas, all have en suite assisted shower and toilet facilities.

The building is two-storey and there are two lifts and two sets of stairs provided between floors. The building overlooks secure landscaped gardens and has spectacular views across the lake.

The centre is located on the outskirts of Loughrea town in County Galway. The building is within walking distance of the town centre and all local amenities.

Open visiting and family involvement is encouraged

What is the Nursing Homes Support Scheme?

The Nursing Homes Support Scheme provides financial support towards the cost of long-term nursing home care. Under the scheme, people who need nursing home care have their income and assets assessed, and then make a contribution towards the cost of their care based on their assessment.

The HSE will pay the rest, if any, of the costs of their care in designated public and approved private nursing homes covered under the scheme. People can choose care in any of the nursing homes included in the scheme provided that the nursing home can cater for the person's particular needs and that it has a place available for the person.


As the budget for this scheme is fixed each year, at times a waiting list for financial support may be in place
