ABOUT OUR FACILITIES

For us, our facility is not just about bricks and mortar. It is about the environment a building is situated in and the people that provide the care. However, we believe at St Magnus Nursing we can tick all boxes.

Situated within over six hectares of the beautiful South Down National Park we provide the most tranquil, and beautiful surroundings for our residents. The ‘house’ was built around 1850 and was the home for WW1 Fighter Pilots returning from the War with either physical or mental injuries that meant they could not be cared for at home.

WEST WING

West Wing has 20 beds, 12 beds are mixed sex and 8 beds are female. West Wing provides care for residents in single rooms over two floors with access to its own gardens and social spaces and locked doors onto the unit. The unit accommodates both male and female residents and within the unit is a female unit with a female only communal space for our residents who are vulnerable or do not wish to socialise with our male residents. These beds also have access to all other social and communal spaces within West Wing.

Staff provide a high level of support and care for residents who typically have enduring mental health problems often with a cognitive impairment including early stages of dementia. Residents present with behaviours that challenge that have not been able to be managed in other care settings. Residents require high levels of supervision and support to maximise their independence and wellbeing in a managed care environment. Usually all residents will have been granted a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguard by the Local Authority, while other residents may be placed here under other parts of the Mental Act, 1983, such as section 117 after care or a Community Treatment Order. West Wing will continuously assess residents, and once a resident has reached a stage where they could be managed in a more typical care setting.  We will facilitate a resident’s move in order to ensure they are cared for in the most appropriate and least restrictive environment.

EAST WING

East Wing has 27 beds, 20 beds are male, and 7 beds are mixed sex. East Wing provides care for residents in single rooms over two floors and has access to its own secured garden area and social spaces. The doors are locked and accommodate male residents. Staff provide a high level of support and care for residents with moderate to severe forms of dementia and often have other physical health needs. Residents present with behaviours that challenge that have not been able to be managed in other care settings. Some residents may also have enduring mental health problems and developed dementia. Often residents in this unit are mobile and walking unaided in the environment which is structured and highly supervised.

Within the unit there is a mixed sex unit for physical high dependency with a separate communal and dining area. This is a mixed sex environment and the residents would typically have physical needs that require high levels of nursing interventions and assistance but continue to present with challenging behaviours that are not able to be managed in other care settings.

Usually all residents will have been granted a Deprivation of Liberty Safeguard by the Local Authority, while other residents may be placed here under other parts of the Mental Act, 1983, such as section 117 after care or a Community Treatment Order.

East Wing will continuously assess residents and once a resident has reached a stage where they could be managed in a more typical care setting, we will facilitate a resident’s move in order to ensure they are cared for the most appropriate and least restrictive environment.
