Bushmount Nursing Home

Clonakilty, Co. Cork

Bushmount Nursing Home is has been a home for the elderly for over 50 years. Originally opened in 1956 by the Sisters of Charity of St. Paul as a home for retired priests, Bushmount Nursing Home changed hands in 2009 and is now run by Sean and Ann Collins. The home is located on 6 acres of landscaped gardens and mature tree in the heart of Clonakilty.

The home provides accommodation for up to 79 residents, with all bedrooms being single and most ensuite. Each room comes with a TV and a phone. Bushmount Nursing Home strives to create an environment where each resident is supported on a physical and emotional level. In light of this, each room is equipped with specialised equipment as required by each individual resident. To further provide emotional support, the team at Bushmount encourages residents to personalise their rooms with their own furniture and personal belongings to create a home away from home atmosphere.

Activities are of high importance at Bushmount as they are believed to be a central part of overall happiness and quality of life. Group activities are organised daily throughout the house, with smaller activities organised in sitting rooms throughout the day. Activities include gardening, cooking, baking, art, music, crafts and knitting, exercise and meditation. Other activities can be arranged based on the interests of the residents.

As the house is surrounded by mature gardens, residents are free to enjoy them at their leisure. There is also an internal garden for socialising and watching the free range hens run about! Residents are encouraged to get involved in the daily life of the home and for those who enjoy a spot of gardening, they can help plant flowers and vegetables.

Bushmount Nursing Home is located just 5 minutes from Clonakilty town centre between Faxbridge and Clonakilty, just off the N71.
