Summer kicks off in Dunlavin ✨

We had a whirlwind of a day last week in Dunlavin Nursing Home. From birthdays to anniversaries and everything in between.

First and foremost, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our newly redesigned Courtyard, courtesy of the incredibly talented June Blake. With her expertise, our Courtyard has been transformed into a breathtaking oasis that will surely bring joy and tranquillity to our residents and visitors alike.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to June, Jimmi, and the extended Blake family for their unwavering dedication and support in making this transformation possible.

In the midst of our celebrations, we had the pleasure of honouring Kathleen’s birthday. Birthdays are always special occasions, and we made sure Kathleen felt the love and warmth from our entire Silver Stream Healthcare family.


The Beehive at Dunlavin

The Beehive in Dunlavin is a social hub and does be buzzing as it serves as a social hub. Excuse the pun!

This state-of-the-art salon is for residents only and is designed to provide a luxurious and comfortable experience.

It offers a wide range of hair and beauty treatments, including haircuts, styling, manicures, pedicures, and facials, tailored to the needs and preferences of the residents.

The salon is equipped with modern equipment and tools to ensure the highest quality of services. Trained and experienced staff provides personalized attention and care to each resident, ensuring they feel pampered and refreshed.

Relatives Information and Support Group

Each nursing home has a Relatives Information and Support Group. The group works in partnership with the nursing home to maintain and improve the quality of life for the residents in the home.

The group meets on a quarterly basis at an agreed date and time, depending on the wishes of the members; and facilitates a close working partnership with residents, relatives, management and staff of the nursing home.

The group aims to contribute to, and oversee, effective changes in the nursing home. We also aim to identify opportunities and encourage initiatives to enhance the environment of the home.

We occasionally host information and education seminars at these meetings on topics of interest. All relatives and friends are welcome to attend and we encourage participation as the meetings are a positive and beneficial attribute for both relatives and residents of the nursing home.

The Meadow at Dunlavin

Our residents have created the Meadow of Creativity, an ever-evolving project that we are excited to share with you. We will keep you updated on the brilliant progress that is made. We hope you enjoy this unique and inspiring endeavor.

The Meadow of Creativity project has been a wonderful opportunity for our residents to socialise and engage with one another. Just like ‘The Beehive’, many describe this as a social hub.
