The maximum number of Residents accommodated by registration at Deerpark House is 50, ageing from eighteen years upwards. We have forty-two single bedrooms and four double bedrooms that can accommodate anyone who wishes to share a room.

We accommodate both female and male Residents. All prospective Residents are assessed by our Person in Charge or Assistant Director of Nursing prior to admission so as to ensure that we can cater for their needs. Each Residents individual needs are assessed regularly by the Person in Charge and the type of room that is most suitable for them is decided. This decision is discussed with the General Practitioner, the Residents and their families. Our Residents choice and dignity is foremost in all our decision-making processes.
