SignaCare New Ross was relaunched last week after being renovated.

The family-operated nursing home is a home away from home for its residents, all of whom are enjoying exceptional, around the clock care in the purpose-built, luxury facility on the edge of New Ross. The new owners have rescued the home from receivership and have put in place a new management team at the 62-bed home. It all means the local community can now avail of unrivalled, passionate and professional care at a nursing home within the New Ross community, while also maintaining close links with family and friends.

The purpose-built home offers full-time residential as well as convalescence, respite, dementia and palliative care. The predominantly local team is headed up by co-owner, Margaret-Anne Walsh. She is supported by the Director of Nursing, Anne-Marie Ackerley.

Margaret-Anne has been responsible for the complete overhaul of care processes and procedures in SignaCare New Ross.

Significant physical improvement works have also taken place in New Ross. 'Our philosophy is that this home is our resident's home and it needed to feel more homely.

'We respect resident's choices and personal preferences, as well as their space. We've renovated the entrance and dining areas and replaced all of the flooring on the ground level of our home.'
