Situated on an elevated site in Glengormley, Co Antrim, Dunanney Private Care Home enjoys panoramic views of Cavehill and Belfast Lough. The home offers person centred nursing and residential care in a homely environment for the over 65s and can be on either a permanent or respite basis.

Our philosophy is simple, we want everyone to live life to their full potential. We always remember that our residents come first and treat them with the dignity, privacy and respect they deserve whilst encouraging them to retain their independence.

The home has an activities coordinator who organises individual programmes daily to suit the needs and wishes of our residents. Residents are encouraged to join in with activities such as quizzes, sing-alongs, reminiscence therapy, indoor games, arts and crafts, baking and trips out and about. Events are organised throughout the year to coincide with special events on the calendar and external entertainers are a regular occurrence. We also have a pet therapy dog who visits weekly.

Our kitchen staff prepare three nutritionally balanced meals a day and menus reflect seasonal produce. Special diets such as coeliac and diabetic can be catered for. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are always available and guests may share a meal with their relatives if they wish.

You can be assured of a very warm welcome at Dunanney Private Care Home. If you would like to be shown around or just have an informal chat about the home, please contact the Home Manager on 02890 849349 or 02890 837360.

Tina McGuigan, Home Manager Dunanney Care Centre

I qualified in 2011 as a Mental Health Nurse having taken up my first post in South Wales. On returning to Northern Ireland, I commenced post in Glebe Care Centre where I gained the knowledge and experience to allow me to progress to Home Manager of Dunanney Care Centre.

I lead a dedicated team of nurses, care assistants, catering, housekeeping, maintenance and activity staff, without whom the high standard of care we deliver would not be possible. The majority of staff in the home have been working at Dunanney for many years, have an indepth knowledge of resident needs and are extremely dedicated and committed to those they care for. This enables us to truly offer personal-centred care. The activity programme offers a diverse choice for both group and individual preferences.

In addition, we cater to the needs of those with more complex nursing needs, a level at which is often only available in a hospital setting. I am proud that the staff teams at Dunanney have been able to provide residents with a home, outside of a hospital environment, when being able to return to their own homes is not currently an option.

Testimonials
Over a year ago my husband and I were looking at suitable Nursing Homes for my brother who is 71 years of age, has a mental illness and is very quiet, vulnerable and withdrawn.
After much researching, we were told about Dunanney Care home, Newtownabbey.
My husband and I went to visit Dunanney Care Home and when we arrived we were greeted by a very warm, cheerful and friendly Administrator. I know what it is like to deal with individual personalities, responsibilities and stress. It can be trying at times.
