About

Silver Stream Healthcare is an Irish company that owns and manages a growing number of nursing homes across Ireland, providing quality care for over 350 residents. Established in 1993, our head office is in Ratoath, Co. Meath, where we centrally manage the business.

Here at Silver Stream Healthcare, our residents come first. We provide a wide range of care options, from long stay to respite care, dementia care, convalescence care and end of life care. We have nursing homes across Ireland, providing quality care to many residents.

We know that making a care decision can be challenging for you and your family. In many cases, such decisions can be made gradually as you grow older or your health declines. Sometimes however, where there’s an illness or injury, a decision needs to be made quickly.

We find that understanding your options can help you make the best choices for your personal circumstances. Living in residential care, while life changing, can also be hugely rewarding. It can present you with new opportunities in a caring and safe environment.

Our Mission

Silver Stream is committed to delivering peace of mind to you and your family.

Working in partnership with the wider community, we are committed to addressing each individual resident’s cognitive, sensory, social, spiritual and physical activities every day. We seek to promote and encourage a healthy and happy lifestyle.

In pursuing excellence, we take a robust approach to clinical governance and safeguarding, underpinned by national and international standards and legal and regulatory frameworks. We seek to be honest, transparent and fully accountable in all matters.

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 that Silver Stream provides.

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.

We endeavour to enhance wellbeing through care, comfort and community and are committed to delivering quality outcomes, providing peace of mind for you and your family.

Our Philosophy

Silver Stream’s central philosophy is to provide quality person centred care pathways, 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 a community environment where residents are supported and encouraged to retain their highest level of ability, autonomy and independence.

Our Values

As a group, we benefit from a shared community and we encourage our residents, staff, family, friends, advocates, representatives and visitors to communicate with and support each other.

We promote an environment that is conducive to all community members being able to access information, raise issues and make suggestions and complaints in the spirit of openness and partnership.

We also place emphasis on communication, consultation and participation between our community members and the wider community of healthcare professionals, charitable organisations and groups involved with care of the older person. Working together as a group ensures that we are continually exploring new ways to adapt and evolve in order to deliver quality assurance, innovation and continuous improvement.

Choosing residential care is a life changing decision but it can be a hugely positive one. We hope that when you choose Silver Stream that you have a sense of being at home and know that your family are joining our family.

Corporate

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).

  • 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.
