They can relax and socialise in the comfy TV lounges or spend time in the many quiet areas, ideal for reading or listening to music. For those residents who love the outdoors, our large garden and grounds are ideal for enjoying a peaceful walk or alternatively just to relax by having a seat and enjoying the fresh air.

There is plenty going and our activities coordinator puts together a full programme to reflect the likes and needs of our residents.

Our cook prepares three nutritious meals a day, including home baking, and the menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal produce. Hot drinks and snacks are always available and guests are invited to share a meal with residents. Special diets are also catered for.

Friends and family are welcome at any time. We have a large quiet room that families may use for meetings and our nurses and activity coordinator use this for reminiscence therapy and to deliver the full range of activities.

Ryan O’Donnell, Home Manager of Culmore Manor since October 2018.

I am a Registered Mental Health nurse having qualified in 2009. My background includes working in a dementia inpatient unit as well as community based services in the Derry / Londonderry area. I am extremely passionate about resident needs and motivating staff teams in Culmore Manor to deliver the highest standards of care possible. Personally for me, I am proud and delighted to be able to lead care in a community that I grew up in. My aim is to empower the residents who live in Culmore Manor, to get the best out of life.

From starting in Culmore, I have found the Home to be a tranquil environment, with a very relaxed atmosphere. I lead very dedicated nursing, care and ancillary teams, who always strive to go the extra mile for the residents for whom we care. The Home is close to city amenities, situated on a large site with beautifully landscaped gardens. It really is a “Home from Home”.

In light of the recent development of new cases of the Coronavirus throughout Northern Ireland, we are writing to advise that all non-urgent visits to the Homes will be temporarily suspended with effect from Tuesday 1st September 2020. Following our previous correspondence with the introduction of outdoor visiting, we did confirm that we would continue to monitor the situation and notify you of any further updates in relation to visiting arrangements.

Additionally, we are cancelling local community and external entertainment. Outings from the Homes to day centres and social outings are unfortunately also being suspended. Our staff will do all they can to ensure that life in our Homes remain as comfortable and sociable as possible. We will still ensure that vital medical appointments will be kept where possible.

We fully acknowledge what a difficult time this has been and how hard it is to be separated from your loved one during these unprecedented times. However, with the recent increases of the “R-factor” and the higher incidences of clusters in numerous community areas, we remain cautious that complacency could particularly impact residents living in our Care Homes. It is anticipated that a further spike in cases will occur when the majority of schools return on a full-time basis from next week.

Specifically, we would ask that you to adhere to the following:

  • You may benefit from telephoning the Home to enquire regarding your loved one during business hours 9am-5pm.
  • Children will not be permitted to visit our Homes.
  • If your visit to the Home is urgent or non-preventable, you are asked to sanitise your hands using alcohol gel on entry and to proceed directly to the room of your loved one.  Please note only one visitor per resident will be permitted access at any one time.
  • Please note while in the building you must not access the communal lounges, dining rooms or ancillary areas of the Home.
  • Those who are displaying any signs of colds, flu or respiratory disease will not be permitted access and are asked to follow Public Health Agency guidelines on their website.

Having taken such decisions early previously, which prevented spread to and from the community, the safety and wellbeing of our residents and staff in Larchwood Care remains paramount.

Please be assured that these measures are being implemented to keep your loved ones and all other residents as safe as possible. We have not taken this decision lightly and appreciate that this may cause some discomfort but feel this is a necessary step to take of social responsibility. Our staff teams have been superb and continue to demonstrate their dedication and commitment in keeping your loved one protected.

We plan to review this decision again at the end of September. If you have any questions please contact the Home Manager as I know they will be only too happy to help.

Thank-you for your continued support, understanding and patience at this time.

Yours sincerely,

Nuala Green

Managing Director
