About Us

BACKGROUND

Opened in 1991, the purpose-built Oaklands Nursing Home is set in four acres of peaceful farming countryside, four miles from Listowel in County Kerry. The accommodation has undergone a major refurbishment so that it meets and often exceeds legislative standards of care. It is designed to balance your need for your own space, surrounded by the things that matter to you, and creating a sense of community – with places where people can gather, share hobbies and activities and meet family and friends.

We now provide accommodation for up to 51 residents in a mixture of 27 single and 12 twin en-suite bedrooms. Our professional teams look after each resident with a warm, personalised and extremely high standard of service.

We offer a choice of leisure rooms, which provide an opportunity for socialising as well as a great many recreational activities. There are also two enclosed gardens that can be easily accessed from the home.

We believe that all residents in our care are entitled to:


Personal independence and choice

A personal care plan

Consultation of daily living arrangements

Consent for any physical or medical intervention


Access facilities and services within the local community

Have their cultural, religious and emotional needs met

Live in a stimulating environment

Be always treated with dignity and respect
