Our philosophy is simple, we want everyone to live life to their full potential. We always remember that our residents come first and treat them with the dignity, privacy and respect they deserve whilst encouraging them to retain their independence.
The home has an activities coordinator who organises individual programmes daily to suit the needs and wishes of our residents. Residents are encouraged to join in with activities such as quizzes, sing-alongs, reminiscence therapy, indoor games, arts and crafts, baking and trips out and about. Events are organised throughout the year to coincide with special events on the calendar and external entertainers are a regular occurrence. We also have a pet therapy dog who visits weekly.
Our kitchen staff prepare three nutritionally balanced meals a day and menus reflect seasonal produce. Special diets such as coeliac and diabetic can be catered for. Hot and cold drinks and snacks are always available and guests may share a meal with their relatives if they wish.
You can be assured of a very warm welcome at Dunanney Private Care Home. If you would like to be shown around or just have an informal chat about the home, please contact the Home Manager on 02890 849349 or 02890 837360.
Cristina Chimixis, Acting Home Manager Dunanney Care Centre
In 2014 I qualified as a Registered General Nurse in Romania. A short time after qualifying I relocated to Northern Ireland and began working within the Independent Sector in March 2015.
I joined the Larchwood Care NI family in March 2020, at the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic and a very challenging period for humanity. I have had the honour and privilege to help in giving back as much care to residents as possible along with my love and joy, in a Care Home that I have worked for more than two years as a Registered Nurse.
In 2022 I was promoted to the position of Acting Home Manager in Dunanney Care Home to lead a dedicated team of nursing, care and ancillary staff to develop a place where the residents can call ‘a home from home.’ I wish people to recognised that resident’s dear ones are more than welcome to spend as much time as they feel able to. A place opened to suggestions on how we can meet each and every individual’s needs as I believe that good care means open communication between all stakeholders.
