Become part of Silver Stream Healthcare Group

Silver Stream Healthcare Group are one of the largest, professionally administered nursing home groups in Ireland. We currently operate seven nursing homes in Dublin, Meath, Wicklow and Tipperary.

Over the years, the group has expanded through a combination of acquisitions and new site developments. We intend to bring a number of independent single homes and small groups under a common ownership to allow them to benefit from our central service centre, including finance, HR, sales and marketing support.

Our strategy is to support owner managers of single independent sites and small groups to plan for the future. We can provide an opportunity for business owners to sell their business and retire or pursue other interests (or a phased retirement strategy).

Why Join Silver Stream Healthcare Group?

  • All our homes focus on the ‘home from home’ care experience. We are united in our approach.
  • Each home retains its individual style and atmosphere, no two homes are alike.
  • Peer support. Our experienced staff recognise the benefit of calling on one another when advice is needed.
  • Business, finance and clinical support. There is a wealth of expertise available in our Support Office.
  • Marketing, HR, training and recruitment.
  • Continuing professional development. We provide ongoing opportunities for training and development to all our staff.
  • Staff have flexibility. Flexibility on location whilst staying a part of the Silver Stream team, and flexibility on hours of work.
  • Property maintenance, investment and management.

About Silver Stream Healthcare Group

The company was founded in 1993 and is managed centrally from our Support Office in Ratoath, Co. Meath.

Silver Stream’s central ethos is to provide quality person centred care, where residents are offered choice in their way of life and are consulted and participate in decisions regarding their care.

Our vision is to create an environment where residents are supported and encouraged to retain their highest level of ability, autonomy and independence. We very much embrace the changing cultures of care, transitioning away from a medical model towards care that is not only person centred, but also person directed.

In our eyes, quality of care and quality of life are synonymous. We invest significant resources towards professional development to enable and empower our staff to take ownership of the care we provide. We want our staff to be happy and believe that care team longevity and tenure is paramount to ensuring that a genuine relationship is established between staff and residents, thus allowing for care planning to be person centred and natural.
