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.

Verconica Sousa, Acting Home Manager Dunanney Care Centre
I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 2011 in Portugal. During my training I developed a passion for caring for the elderly. I began work within the Independent Sector in 2012 and I have had the privilege of supporting residents to enhance their quality of life through compassionate care and I found that very rewarding.
I joined Larchwood Care in 2019 and progressed to the position of Clinical Lead. In 2020, I was promoted to the position of Acting Home Manager in Dunanney Care Home to lead a dedicated team of nursing, care and ancillary staff to develop a homely environment overlooking the panoramic views of the Cavehill and Belfast Lough.
The majority of staff in the home have been working at Dunanney for many years which promotes a person centred sense of care and always put the residnts first. The activities program offers a variety of group and individual entertainment to suit everyone’s needs and preferences.
Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, spending time with my two kids and reading.
