This is an extraordinary time, with the coronavirus COVID-19  affecting everyone’s daily life and especially here at Saint Joseph’s Shankill.  We have had to change many of our day to day activities to keep people safe, but we have ensured that in each of our lodges our residents and staff cocoon together.  Due to the restrictions and for the safety and wellbeing of all the people who live at Saint Joseph’s Shankill, visits must be booked in advance and visiting is held in our dedicated visiting area, which is managed by members of our wonderful volunteer team!


At Saint Joseph’s Shankill we aspire to lead the way in dementia care in Ireland.  We have transformed from a traditional style, medical modeled nursing home into six new homes or ‘lodges’ as they are known.

We are an accredited Meaningful Care Matters ‘Butterfly Home’.

We are part of the Irish Hospice Foundation’s CEOL Programme focussing on person centred end of life care.

Please take just 3 minutes to see what we are all about at Saint Joseph’s.

Our lodges feel like home for our residents and we care for them in the best possible way.
