Larchfield Park Care Centre was founded by the Dillon family on the principles of world-class elderly care and community and we remain true to these values in this time of emergency.
Our nursing home will always be our priority and we will be focused on the safety and wellbeing of our residents and their loved ones and our staff at all times. We are committed to the highest standards of care. Since the Covid-19 crisis began to emerge we have been liaising closely with our staff and the relevant health authorities. Some of the measures we are taking to reduce the risks in our nursing home include:
We have a dedicated Emergency Led Team closely monitoring and following the guidance from the HSE and Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC). We commit to regular and proactive communication with our residents and staff as the situation evolves
Our staff are wearing gloves, aprons, and masks for all interactions with residents deemed at risk
Residents are encouraged to self-isolate and remain in their bedrooms as much as possible
Our staff are fully trained in all the required infection control measures
All resident’s temperature, pulse, and respiratory rates are monitored daily, or more often if required, to help identify early indicators of Covid-19
Our GP Dr Michael McNiff will be onsite when necessary for further monitoring and is on call 24 hours a day
Our nursing home is divided into wings, and the staff are designated into a wing where they will remain throughout their shift to help prevent the risk of any cross infection
There is a comprehensive cleaning schedule in place for all areas
Out of respect for the privacy of those in our care, and their families, we don’t comment on the health condition of any of our residents over the telephone.
Let’s take care of ourselves, and each other, in these uncertain times.

Welcome to Larchfield Park Care Centre Limited
Established in 1989 by Mrs Ellen Dillon, Larchfield Park Care Centre is a purpose built nursing home providing professional care for long or short stay residents, including respite, day care and convalescent care.
Celebrating over 20 years in existence, Larchfield Park Care Centre is run and managed by the Dillon Family. All our residents are treated as part of this family. From the moment you enter Larchfield Park Care Centre you will feel the love and care that is shown to our residents. All of our residents, whether short or long term are treated as individuals.
Respect, discretion, privacy and enjoyment of life in a residential home are all aspects that are as important to us as our professional medical services, thus ensuring peace of mind for our residents and their families.
Larchfield Park Care Centre has an “open house” policy which means we allow relatives and friends the opportunity to visit residents at any reasonable time – making our home a unique family environment. Our highly trained staff strive to work with a professional and friendly approach, accommodating resident requests and needs. All staff are hand picked for their experience, qualifications and above all, their individual skills.
A Home From Home
At Larchfield Park, we are strong advocates of Person Centred Care, enabling our residents to be in charge of their lives and live as independently as possible. Individual care plans are drawn up in conjunction with residents and their families.
Larchfield Park Care Centre is registered as a member of N.H.I. and are fully committed to The Nursing Home Support Scheme(The Fair Deal).
