Silver Stream Healthcare Group was delighted to have a visit from Taoiseach, Micheál Martin highlighting the opening of our new care centre in Riverstick, Cork.
Our new “home away from home” highlights the Silver Stream Groups’ continuous expansion and commitment as one of the largest providers of residential care for older people in Ireland.
An Taoiseach was joined by the CEO of Silver Stream Healthcare, Tom Finn to celebrate the opening of the new facility. Laura Dillion, Managing Director of Waterland Private Equity Ireland was also in attendance.
This state-of-the-art transitional step-down centre at Riverstick is aimed to help alleviate the demand on Cork University Hospital.
Riverstick Care Centre at a glance
Set in the vibrant village of Riverstick, this centre truly offers a “home away from home” experience for residents.
- 92 single and double ensuite bedrooms
- Set on almost 4,500m2 of countryside land
- Less than 17km from Cork City
- Extensive activities schedule
- Local community involvement
Built in 2020’s, Riverstick Care Centre provides a modern yet cosy environment. Its location among the rolling valleys of Riverstick only adds to this idyllic setting.
Riverstick Care Centre was designed as a collaborative effort between Silver Stream Healthcare Group, South/South West Hospital Group and Cork University Hospital.
“Yes, we have long-term care, dementia care, palliative care, but we also have a different type of care which is where nursing homes are going. We’re not going to have people in nursing homes for 10 years anymore, we’re going to have them in for 18 months, maybe two years maximum and that’s what this building is designed to cater for.
“So, we’re very excited that we can create a home from home.” “It’s that our residents feel at home here and feel safe here,” he said. Tom Finn, CEO of Silver Stream Healthcare Group
A word from An Taoiseach
An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin was agreement and said:
People want to be cared for in their own homes for as long as possible so what we have to do is provide for what we call a continuum of care.
An Taoiseach also touched on how there will always be a need for long term residential care in Ireland. The Silver Stream Healthcare Group hopes to play a key role in this as we continue to expand and open new locations.
The Government has also reconfirmed its commitment to an Age Friendly Ireland. Having facilities such as those Silver Stream provides will play a key role in this initiative.
