Brentwood Manor

Brentwood Manor

Brentwood Manor is located in the village of Convoy in East Donegal some 10 miles from Letterkenny and 5 miles from Ballybofey. It is the only private nursing home in the northwest, which is devoted totally to the care of those with dementia.

The building was designed in consultation with Dementia Ireland to include the most up to date facilities based on international research into the illness. It has secure internal gardens with raised planting designed to encourage touch and to heighten the senses.

The nursing home is divided into 4 small units for 11 residents, each with its own lounge and dining room. A small safe kitchen has been included to help residents feel at home and they are encouraged to entertain family and friends. The corridors are designed for strolling with rest areas along the way, where life size murals have been painted detecting streetscapes and agricultural scenes from bygone days.

Care Types

Residential Nursing Care

We provide exceptional nursing care for people with both simple and complex needs.

Areas of specialty care include stroke or neurological injury, physical disability and long-term conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, cardiac or respiratory illness.

We are highly-experienced at caring for residents with one or more medical conditions, and adapting for common challenges in other areas such as hearing and mobility.

Dementia Care

We specialise in caring for people living with all types of dementia. We understand that it can be an emotional journey for all the family when a loved one is diagnosed with dementia and moving into full-time care is often a difficult decision.

We know how important it is to find/choose a care home where one is not defined by dementia. Our dedicated and experienced team have specifically chosen to work with this sector and are passionate about providing the best possible alternative for those who are no longer able to manage in their own home.
