Facilities and Activities


At Shannon Lodge we cater for day care, short/long term residential care, and convalescent care - each receiving the friendly yet efficient attention to make their stay with us as relaxed and homely as possible.

Every resident, whether long term, short term, convalescent or day care, has their own individual care programme prepared based on their pre-admission assessment.  We strive to meet their personal requirements as well as their medical needs and encourage the resident's active participation in the preparation of their programme where possible. Whilst their medical assessment is of primary importance, the little things that can make life easier during the transition to a nursing home is also vital to their comfort - from their favourite food, to enjoying reading in a quiet room.



A majority of our entertainment from live music performances to Irish dancing, bingo to quizzes, takes place in our bright and spacious Lounges. The Lounges are a focal point for our residents, where they relax and have a chat in a relaxed atmosphere. We provide a separate room for residents who like a smoke!

At Shannon Lodge Nursing Home, we are happy to provide any service or item that will improve our residents' quality of life.
