Glebe Care Centre is situated in Newtownabbey with views of Cavehill. Offering premium care for the elderly on a permanent or respite basis, this care centre is perfect for those who enjoy the outdoors.

With beautiful gardens, residents can enjoy leisurely walks or games arranged by our activities co-ordinator. At Glebe Care Centre, we want residents to have the freedom to choose what to do and when – and there’s plenty to keep them occupied. We run a full programme of activities including quizzes, sing-alongs, reminiscence therapy, indoor games, art and craft, baking and, wherever possible, trips out and about.

Our philosophy is simple – we want everyone to enjoy life to the full. Our team of highly trained professionals never forgets that all residents are individuals and we treat them with dignity, privacy and respect, offering them as much freedom as possible.

Friends and family are welcome at any time to enjoy a meal with their loved one or take part in one of the many activities. Hot drinks and snacks are always available and our cook prepares three nutritious meals a day. The menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal produce. Special diets are catered for.

If you would like a tour of Glebe Care Centre or want to chat about the care we offer please get in touch on 028 9084 8212 or request a call back.

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
We can’t thank the staff at Glebe Care Centre enough for looking after our father during the last years of his life. A keen gardener, he loved spending time in the beautiful gardens and he was always kept busy with games, activities and special days out.
I looked at lots of different care homes for my mum but it was only when I visited Glebe Care Centre that I thought it was the right fit. The staff, the homely atmosphere, the gardens and activities were just what we were looking for – and best of all my mum loves her new home.

Our visiting policy has changed since our previous update.  We have had to limit access to allow palliative care visiting only.

This has been a difficult decision to reach however we believe it is in the best interests of the resident population.

Such visits will be limited to one relative per day and for a maximum of 30 minutes.  No children will be permitted access into the Home

This is in line with the increased measures announced by the government tonight 8.30pm 23 March 2020.

We greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation in implementing this policy.

Thank you
