FirstCare Nursing Home Residents

FirstCare’s private nursing homes offer person centred care and support for every resident in our living facilities. Our team members strive to ensure everyone in our accommodation is treated with dignity, respect and high quality healthcare.

We provide the highest standards of individualised nursing care for a full range of physical and neurological conditions. It is our duty to cater to both the simple and complex needs an older person may have.

The nursing home tends to different forms of illness and offer the respite and support that older people often require. Our dementia care is a particularly strong aspect of our nursing and we value our relationships with residents as being fundamental to our mission.

At Mountpleasant Lodge Nursing Home we also have a dedicated purpose-built annex offering bespoke short-term respite and convalescence care packages.

This nursing home is also well suited to individuals who do not have a specific medical condition but who want to enjoy their independence in a comfortable and supportive environment, with high-quality cooked meals and other facilities to enjoy.

Facilities and Activities

Good nursing home care involves an emphasis on physical activity. Our residents take part in an exercise programme that ensures they stay active everyday without overextending themselves. We work off the basis of everyone’s individual ability so as to remain safe and comfortable throughout.

Well prepared food, relaxation, fun and activities make up the average day in a FirstCare nursing home. It begins with a hearty breakfast, and a typical afternoon might include browsing the morning papers, joining the ‘Whitty Knitters’ for a session while putting the world to rights or even heading out to the local choir to exercise those vocal chords.

Residents can also join our aromatherapist for a hand, head or foot massage. Lunch is a relaxed affair and a chance to meet up with a friend for a chat.

There is a wide choice of activities in the afternoons including bingo, music, karaoke and dance sessions, group physiotherapy and chair yoga. Residents are free to participate as they wish. For those who wish to attend, Mass is available each Thursday with a Eucharistic service offered four times a week.

There is a large internal courtyard where residents can hone their gardening skills, growing fruit, vegetables and flowers.
