We are ecstatic to finally reveal our collaborative project for Arts in Nursing Homes Day! These paper mache hot air balloons represent the three buildings that make up Orwell Healthcare. Residents & staff worked hard over the last few weeks to bring this project to fruition.
Be sure to stop by the Resident’s Art Gallery to see the full display during your next visit!

We are delighted to announce that Orwell Healthcare has been shortlisted for Clinical Team of the Year at the Irish Healthcare Centre Awards!
The Clinical Team spent the entire month of February putting together a massive dossier outlining the incredible work they do on a daily basis at Orwell. Here’s an excerpt from the application that stood out to the judges:
Caring with awareness is an accurate description of our outstanding Clinical Team in Orwell Healthcare who are so deserving of this award. Described by all departments as dependable, knowledgeable, and, compassionate, they make it so we can provide the best care to residents without compromise.
Their solid and progressive teamwork has allowed us to confidently move forward, nurturing and developing new recruits to meet the same high standards, making the management of a full capacity Orwell Private look effortless.
Congratulations & good luck to the team! To see the full shortlist, please click the image below:
Staff Recognition Week ran from July 13th. On Monday there was a McDonald’s Breakfast to start the week with fuel in the belly for long shifts ahead. By Tuesday there was a gap ready for an ice cream from the lovely O’Brien’s Ice Cream Truck. Wednesday we gratefully and greedily tucked into the BBQ in the garden and Thursday there were soft drinks on ice for all. Friday finished off the week of treats nicely with a ‘coffee of choice’ and a monster cookie courtesy of our Cafe on the Avenue. We can’t thank the staff enough for the terrific work they do. What a team!
All Residents and Staff enjoyed a concert in the garden to celebrate Mother’s Day yesterday. The sun was shining and the spring bulbs were in bloom. many gifts and care packages arrived as Resident Families and friends continue to adhere to the ‘No Visitor’ policy.
