Curam Care Homes plan to provide a number of bespoke, modern, purpose built Care Homes that will meet the needs of our residents in comfortable and homely surroundings and deliver care in a respectful and dignified manner. In our homes, we aim to provide the best quality and standard of care available to our residents and to promote an environment that allows them to maintain close ties not only with their immediate family but also with the wider local community.
Construction of our latest home on the Navan Road in Dublin commenced in 2018 and we expect to open the doors to new residents in early 2021. We look forward to serving the people of Dublin 7 and the surrounding areas for many years to come.
Our Curam Care Home Navan Road is adjacent to the Deaf Village and the Primary Care Centre on the Navan Road and is a 144 bed home designed over 4 floors where each floor has the capacity, in terms of kitchens, dining rooms and a selection of seating areas, to operate as individual units whilst still enjoying the benefits and facilities of a larger home. This design approach allows us to meet our residents needs on each individual floor and a similar design in our existing homes was a fundamental element in our successful infection control protocols during the ongoing Covid 19 crisis.
