Padre Pio Nursing Home is a family run, private Nursing Home of exceptional character. This lovely residence is surrounded by enclosed, walled gardens within a rural setting while still within walking distance of Holycross Village. The building has been extended and completely renovated and upgraded to provide extensive and luxurious accommodation, facilitating all categories of care of the elderly, from independent living within a nursing home setting right through to high dependency care.
Padre Pio Nursing Home endeavours to maintain the highest possible standards of individualised care. We actively encourage the participation of families and friends and recognise the valuable contribution they make to the well being of our residents.
Dining at Padre Pio Nursing Home is an experience to look forward to and enjoyed by all. There is an extensive menu range with daily selection providing good wholesome and nutritional meals which feature tasty home baking. Alternatives and choices are always available and special or medically advised dietary requirements are catered for. Meals may be taken in resident’s own room or in the dining rooms.
‘Man does not cease to play because he grows old; he grows old because he ceases to play.’
George Bernard Shaw
We believe that our social activities program within the nursing home plays a key role in ensuring our residents maintain a happy outlook while enhancing the quality of daily living. We provide a wide range of activities to cater for physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the residents.
Our activity program includes:
• Physiotherapy twice weekly
• Art therapy
• Creative craft making
• SIMMs Therapy
• Exercises to music
• External trips to local events
• Reminiscence therapy
• Card games
• Talking Mats
• Live Music Sessions
We engage the services of the Butterfly Company which perform travelling theatre and vaudeville. During Positive Ageing Week we encourage family and friends to socialise with the residents in a large party setting. In December of each year we hold a family style Christmas Party/Open House.
At Padre Pio Nursing Home we provide the highest standard of care. We are mindful that our staff are the driving force behind our standards of care, and we are committed to ensuring that all our staff receive ongoing, professional development and training. The pursuit of excellence in care and our commitment to maintaining that quality of care is embraced by our Director of Nursing and is encouraged and shared by our valued multidisciplinary team within the nursing home.
