Meath Care offers a range of residential care options and services at both our Kingsley and Como facilities to meet the immediate and changing needs of residents. All rooms at Meath Care boast a spacious single bedroom with an attached private en-suite bathroom. Residents are encouraged to add additional furnishings to enhance the surroundings to their personal taste and to create a home like atmosphere.

Our dedicated staff support our residents and provide individual care and assistance through a variety of services including personal and clinical care. Individualised care needs are assessed and quality care is provided under the leadership of a professional clinical team.

Meath Care caters for ageing in place and dementia specific secure needs meaning a resident can remain with us as they transition through the stages of ageing. Respite Care is also available for short stay periods. This service assists carers in having a break from looking after a loved one and recharging their batteries.

The management and staff endeavour to create a caring, positive and interactive community for all older people.
