Culmore Manor is a 56-bedded nursing home. All rooms are single occupancy with many offering en-suite facilities. Located in Derry / Londonderry, we offer round comprehensive care delivered by dedicated and highly trained staff in comfortable surroundings.

Our philosophy is to help residents live life to the full and residents are encouraged to choose what to do and when. 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.

If you would like a tour of Culmore Manor or want to chat about the care we offer please get in touch on 028 7135 9302 or request a call back.

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”.

Testimonials
I am writing to highlight the care given to my late father during his stay at Culmore Manor Nursing Home. The staff from the cleaners, care assistants, nurses and medical team all showed great kindness and warmth to him and his care was paramount to them.

We acknowledge how difficult it has been for you to be separated from your loved one over this challenging period dealing with the pandemic of COVID-19. We hope you have been satisfied with all communication efforts from the Home that has helped between the residents and yourself in the absence of visiting.

From the initial announcement of the Home closing, the main focus has always been the safety of all residents and staff within our care. I do hope you find it comforting to know that all of our Homes have managed extremely well throughout this crisis to date. We are delighted to share with you that out of 370 residents and over 550 staff across 8 Homes, we have had only 3 positive COVID-19 cases, each of whom have thankfully been nursed back to health and are currently doing well. Our staff teams have been superb and continue to demonstrate their dedication and commitment in keeping your loved one protected.

Following the recent announcement by the Health Minister, knowing that the safety of your resident continues to be your upmost priority, this will be the main focus when considering future visiting arrangements. To allow time for these important decisions to be made informatively, virtual visiting remains the preferred option as it provides the greatest protection for residents and staff while keeping footfall to a minimum.

However, if you are unsatisfied with virtual visiting arrangements, we can accommodate outdoor visiting on weekdays only, which will need to be arranged directly through the Home Manager in advance.

The following outdoor visiting conditions will apply:

  • The resident or you, the next of kin, must nominate two named visitors.
  • A maximum of 2 visitors per resident will be permitted at each visit.
  • Only 1 visit per resident per week will be accommodated.
  • Visitors will be required to provide their own face covering which is mandatory.
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or feeling unwell in any way the visit should not take place.
  • A maximum 20 minute visiting period will be allocated.
  • No children will be permitted.
  • Social distancing principles of 2 metres must be observed at all times.

 

As an increase in the “R – factor” has been recently reported and further lockdowns have been reinstated in some areas, we are aware that a risk remains to the general public. We remain conscious that complacency could particularly impact residents living in our Care Homes and so we are continuing to monitor the situation and will notify you of any further updates in relation to visiting arrangements.

Finally, I would like to thank you for showing your support, understanding and patience which has been greatly appreciated at this time.

Many thanks as ever for your assistance,

Nuala Green
Managing Director
