Philosophy

The Deerpark philosophy is simple.


To provide the best quality care in the best possible environment

Central to our philosophy of care is the provision of a wide range of activities and opportunities for social contact.

Deerpark House employs a full-time activity coordinator who encourages residents to enjoy a feeling of accomplishment and self-confidence.

Community related activities are provided to those residents who wish to participate in order that their lifestyles and contacts within the community are maintained.

The specific nature and timing of activities offered are decided by our residents and we will always do our best to facilitate their choice.

Below are some examples of the type of activities favoured by our residents:

Live music
Visits by theatre groups
Gardening club
SONAS
Pottery
Painting
Photography
Day trips to Bantry and the surrounding areas
