The opening of Elgin Convalescence at Orwell Private


Recuperate in style and comfort at our newly opened 13 bed Elgin Convalescence unit at Orwell Private. Located in the heart of Dublin 6, we set the standard for compassionate and professional nursing care yet believe that the atmosphere and ambiance we create is also important to you, while you recover after a period of ill health or hospital admission.

Orwell Healthcare is one of Dublin’s most respected healthcare providers, with an unrivalled reputation for the care and consideration we demonstrate every day to our clients.  At Orwell Private, the residential division of Orwell Healthcare, our vision is to provide a continuum of care in a friendly, homely yet luxurious environment.  This continuum is made up of residential long and short-term care for a wide variety of conditions, along with a friendly and supportive home care service for our more independent and self-reliant clients. Both services are supported by our in-house education and training centre, Orwell Education.

The maximum stay is two weeks at The Elgin Convalescence at Orwell Private. For further information, please call (+353 1) 4999 000 or email info@orwellhealthcare




Students from Trinity College Dublin

Meet Jack Lynam and Bobby Gillham, current 4th year students of mechanical and manufacturing engineering in Trinity College, Dublin.

They are involved in a project with University of Sao Paulo and their task is to create an interface between a human and a personal assistant robot. The robot would have the ability to complete certain tasks and assist whoever required it.

The students visited Orwell and Elgin on Friday 13th November and spoke with Residents and Staff about the possible use of the personal assistant – to work with staff in their daily work and also with Residents and their activities of daily living.

New Developments: The Elgin

Balcony view

Orwell Healthcare has embarked on a journey of change and has completed the first stage of the new developments. The building, which opened in April, is called ‘The Elgin’. The building stands beautifully over four floors with balcony views and bright hallways, also a Convalescent Unit.

The residents who moved from Orwell House are delighted with The Elgin and are thrilled to be staying in this state of the art building. The staff are also very excited with the opening of The Elgin and feel it provides residents with a homely environment, as the units are all small scale, with just 10 to 13 beds in a unit. The next stage of the project is the completion of ‘The Raglan’  which will happen over the  next few months.
