Find out what we've been up to and what's coming up at Saint Joseph's Shankill.

At Saint Joseph’s Shankill we aspire to lead the way in dementia care in Ireland.

Over the last two years we have transformed from a traditional style, medical modeled nursing home into six new homes or ‘lodges’ as they are known.

We have also become an accredited Dementia Care Matters ‘Butterfly Home’.  We also have adopted the Irish Hospice Foundation CEOL Programme which focuses on person centred end of life care.

Our lodges are true home from homes for our residents to be cared for in the best possible way.
