Welcome to Moneymore Care Home
You'll find Moneymore on the outskirts of Moneymore village, County Londonderry.
Here our dedicated registered nurses, supported by health-care workers and care assistants, offer different levels of care to suit a wide range of needs. These include residential, nursing, respite and palliative care; as well as support for young people who are physically disabled.
We put our residents' health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage them to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Ours is a purpose-built, single-storey home with its own car park. All catering and laundry is done in house. There are three lounges, two dining rooms, and several toilets and shower rooms. We have 37 single bedrooms and two doubles.
Life at Moneymore Care Home
When a person comes to live here, our dedicated personal activity coordinator talks to them and their relatives to find out what they like doing. Around this, she builds a programme of pastimes and diversions.
This can include quizzes, cards, skittles, hand massage, hand and nail care, knitting, baking, gardening, social outings, darts and bowls.
A hairdresser and chiropodist visit the home regularly, as does the community's priest. Ministers from the local churches come by every Sunday.
The care is superb.
Staff have gone out of their way to make it as homely as possibly.
The food is always good.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

You’re never too old to learn, and Father Harry Coyle, a resident at Moneymore Care Home in Magherafelt, proved just that.
The long standing resident at the Northern Ireland Care Home attended a very special graduation ceremony celebrating his honorary Doctorate from the Ulster University in recognition of his ‘lifelong dedication to the promotion and teaching of the Irish Language’.
The Ulster University Vice Chancellor Paddy Nixon attended the event along with a gathering of Father Harry’s closest friends and academic acquaintances from down the years.
Moneymore's Home Manager Ailish Devlin commented "It certainly is a one off for us, we have never hosted anything like this before. Father Harry has been living at Moneymore since 2012 and he is a delightful person to know. When the University contacted us Harry was initially reluctant to receive the award and that is a measure of his humility. However, some close friends persuaded him to go ahead and the team from the university were so accommodating in bringing the graduation ceremony to the home."
"Harry is a very special person and the tributes read out to him today show the depth of respect and admiration there is from the University staff, his former teaching colleagues and pupils from St Patrick’s in Dungannon and among the wider Irish language community. It was a very special day for Harry and for all of us here at Moneymore.”
Congratulations Father Harry.
