Nua Healthcare believes in empowering each individual to live as independently as they possibly can. We currently support individuals in an array of settings and have developed a range of training programmes, facilities and outreach support structures to facilitate all of our Service Users in making the move towards independence.
In 2010, Nua Healthcare completed an exciting addition to the service - Taliesin Independent Living Complex. Taliesin acts as a stepping stone for individuals who are ready to make that move towards independence but yet, wish to retain comfort from the accessibility of nearby support, should they require it. Taliesin offers individuals the opportunity to move from higher dependency programmes into a supported environment without the risk of being fully detached from onsite supports.
The independent living complex comprises of six beautiful log cabins nestled upon seven acres of woodlands on the outskirts of Portlaoise. Each cabin has a master bedroom, a guest bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen / sitting room. The cabins were designed and built to a very high specification by Shomera and are conveniently located beside a low support facility where a social care worker is available to support them, if they so wish.
At Nua Healthcare, we encourage residents to participate in training programmes and to utilise the many links available to them for accessing further education and supported employment initiatives which in turn, prepares them for full independence in the wider community.
Nua Healthcare currently supports a number of individuals from within their own accommodation in the community. Please visit our ‘Homecare’ services for further information.
