At Slieve Dhu Nursing Home, we work hard on making the environment a ‘home away from home’. Our number one priority is the health and welfare of all our residents.  We have a dedicated Activity Coordinator on site five days a week and during special holiday celebrations throughout the year. She works hard to meet the entertainment needs of the residents, planning tailored daily activities for everyone to enjoy.
