Managing Dementia

Brookfield understands the complex needs of individuals coping with the progression of dementia and the impact this has on family and loved ones.


The Owenacurra Unit at Brookfield Care Centre is a small scale Dementia Specific unit which provides a homely and safe environment

where residents and families receive empathy, understanding and support.


Staff of the Owenacurra understand the complex needs of ever changing and uncertain time. They are trained to overcome the barriers to

communication and to validate the person and their experiences as perceptions of reality change.


24 Hour Care

There are 14 maximum dependency rooms with additional floor space to accommodate residents requiring full nursing care. There are 46 rooms with en-suite facilities and 3 rooms without. All 63 rooms are equipped with hand washing facilities, call bells and overbed lighting.


Pampering comes in many forms, a candlelit hydrotherapy bath with essential oils is perfect for relaxation or just dealing with aches and pains. Massage therapy or reflexology are ideal stress busters. While a visit to the hairdressing salon or podiatrist will perfectly improve the feel good factor.


Privacy & Dignity

All care delivery is underpinned by an ethos of respect for the privacy and dignity of the residents. The availability of single rooms, and above average day and dining space, bathing and toileting facilities aid staff in attaining this objective within the nursing home.


Residents are facilitated to maintain hobbies & interests. Contact with families and the extended community are supported. Staff have a responsibility to ensure residents have access to a range of activities appropriate to their personal preferences and abilities.

empathy and compassion. We believe these are essential cornerstones and educational building blocks within the nursing environment.
