It provides both a warm and homely environment with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where residents can feel secure and cared for.

In Gnangara's single rooms with en-suite facilities each resident has their own self-contained flatlet which includes a built-in wardrobe and storage unit. Each en-suite dwelling is carpeted and features a state of the art bed for residents comfort with all bedding in place.

Curtains are also provided in the bedroom. Each room has a television point and a BT telephone point and residents can install private telephones as they choose.

The en-suite facility includes a shower, wash hand basin and toilet. A lockable bathroom cabinet is also provided. Residents are encouraged to create a home-from-home environment by furnishing their own flat and creating a uniquely personal space.

There are a range of communal facilities that include sitting rooms and dining rooms where among other things social activities can be enjoyed.

Gnangara Bungalows

There a number of bungalows available for immediate occupation at Gnangara. These bright modern bungalows are built to a high level of specification and provide comfortable accommodation in which to live independently.
At Gnangara, you will receive support and, if required a domiciliary care service which meets your personal needs. Our aim is for you to remain independent and in control of your lifestyle choices for as long as possible.
Gnangara offers the latest assistive technology which has the added advantage of providing even more independence and reassurance. This is in addition to the additional 24 hour Telecare helpline service.
Our friendly and helpful staff will contact you on a daily basis if that is your wish and will offer support, care and advice which will further assist your wellbeing and independence.
The scheme is conveniently situated on the Sligo Road, adjacent to local shops and post office which provide a popular service for everyone at Gnangara.
Whilst we strive to maintain your tenancy within the bungalows, there may come a point when you require a higher level of care and support. Gnangara can provide move-on accommodation to the adjacent residential housing-with-care building. This is particularly advantageous in keeping contact with new friends, staff and other local services.
Costs vary according to individual financial circumstances, but the scheme does offer affordable rents.

Please contact us for details about costs, availability and other queries.
