A home is constructed using bricks and mortar; a community is built upon care, compassion, respect and atmosphere. These are the core values from which Bishopscourt was cultivated and they continue to drive our community.
In 1998 sisters-in-law Catherine O’Connor and Patsy O’Sullivan founded Bishopscourt. Their vision was to create a purpose-built residential care home that combined innovative thinking alongside the traditional rural values of a tight knit community. This has allowed us to introduce new innovative approaches to improve our resident’s lives through our memory care programme, snoezelen room, sonas, physiotherapy, exercise classes amongst many other engaging activities.
We are proud of our tradition in residential care. Through our strong leadership and conscientious team we have organically grow our capacity from 20 to 60 beds, without compromising Bishopscourt’s core values.
Our resident-first philosophy of care ensures that each member of our community gets the attention they need and deserve. We know that the happiness of our residents is essential in creating a safe, caring and fun community atmosphere.
Making a Difficult Decision
We fully understand and respect the enormity in choosing the right residential care home for your loved one. It is never an easy decision to make.
Our approach is simple, we provide support through a free consultation and tour of our community. During this consultation we will find out the specific needs of your loved one, explain our approach to care and answer any questions you may have about Bishopscourt.
We always encourage that you should visit more than one home in order to make an informed decision. We strongly believe that the values of your chosen residential care home should align with how you expect your loved one to be cared for.
