Nua Healthcare

Care Philosophy

At Nua Healthcare, we believe that having the highest quality of care is an absolute right of every Service User.  We are committed to providing our Service Users with individual, personalised care within a safe and homely environment.

Every Service User is involved throughout the decision-making process of their care. We strive to empower individuals shape their own lives and the services they receive.

We actively encourage our Service Users to develop their life skills, which in turn, enables them to realise their own full potential. We also encourage each individual to participate in an array of individualised services and community-based recreational activities. We therefore, facilitate and support each Service User to pursue meaningful educational and employment opportunities.

Above all, helping people to lead fulfilled, independent lives is what Nua Healthcare is about.


History & Principles

Nua Healthcare was established in 2004 by a small group of experienced and dedicated Social Care Professionals, who at the time, were working in community outreach services for people with Intellectual Disabilities, Autism and Challenging Behaviours.  

Concerned by the lack of appropriate services available to this client group, Nua Healthcare set up its first high support respite service in 2004, located in the beautiful Kildare countryside, catering for individuals with Asperger Syndrome. 



8 years ago our son became a resident in Nua Healthcare. During this time, he has developed into an independent young man. He now considers Nua as his "Home" and he loves to return to Nua after visiting us. We are confident that he is well cared for and this gives us great peace of mind.

We appreciate the excellent care given to him by his carers.
