The rapidly developing Castleisland Nursing Home brings news of a projected 90 new jobs for the community. 

The development, which has just commenced building, will accommodate 74 residents in a state of the art 30,000 square foot facility on two-and-a-half acres on the College Road just outside Castleisland.

News of this development has been well received especially as there is no nursing home in the area.

Proven Track Record

This project is being spear-headed by Pat Kennedy and Denis McElligott, directors of Windmill Group, who have family connections in the area. They have a proven track record and bring extensive experience of setting up and running high quality Nursing homes in Ireland.

“We look forward to opening the doors in autumn 2020 and providing an excellent caring service in a great community,’ said Pat Kennedy.

Valuable Community Supports

Castleisland Nursing Home is specially designed to provide three specific areas to include residents who require treatment for cognitive impairment-dementia care, residents who require occupational and physiotherapy in a rehabilitation setting and general nursing care. The nursing home will have state of the art facilities – onsite physiotherapy, occupational therapy, indoor garden, memory lane. Due to its proximity to the town it will provide the valuable community supports that older people wish to retain as they age.

Comfort of Residents and Staff

Rory McGillycuddy & Associates Design, Engineering & Project Management Consultancy based in Killorglin are leading the project, local building contractors Griffin Brothers, KMS Killarney Mechanical Services and electrical contractors Eleco Services are the appointed contractors.

This development is a major contribution to the local economy. The design of the building is energy efficient and future-proofed for the comfort of the residents and staff.

Five Established Homes

Castleisland Nursing home will join the Windmill Nursing Home Group owned by Kennedy and McElligott, with five established homes across the country: Windmill in Churchtown, Cork; Abbott Close in Askeaton; Killeline in Newcastle West in Co. Limerick; Clarenbridge in Galway and Ferbane in Offaly.

The Windmill Group is synonymous with providing excellent patient centred care to residents with a range of conditions that require long term, short term or convalescent care, as well as residents with memory impairment and dementia.

In addition, they specialise in ‘Step-down’ and rehabilitation care for acquired brain injuries.

New Jobs and Roles

‘We look forward to seeing lots of local candidates filling the new roles be it nurses, care assistants, activity co-ordinators, chefs, catering assistants and administrators,” said Evie Hallissey, human resources manager, Windmill Group.
