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.
