About Us

Welcome To The Talbot Group – CEO Welcome Message

Laverne-9Welcome to The Talbot Group, leading providers of Nursing Home, Intellectual Disability and Acquired Brain Injury Services. The Talbot Group has been a service leader in the provision of Nursing Home Services and specialist Disability Services for more than 20 years.

At the Talbot Group we have a shared Vision and Ambition for both our Disability and Nursing Home Services which is the “Delivery of Exceptional Quality Care in a home-like environment”. To realise this Vision we insist on high quality care, and engage in continuous learning and evidenced based quality improvement programmes to develop new and innovative ways of providing high quality services for our residents. One example of this is our Autism-Specific Services at our new bungalows in Meadowview, which have been awarded accreditation status by the National Autistic Society of the UK. . Both our Nursing Home Services and our Disability Services are also regulated by the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA).

Our Disability Services provide residential support for adults who present with one or more complex issues, including Acquired Brain Injury, Autism and/or Intellectual Disability. We also provide services for adults who present with both an intellectual disability and Mental Health difficulties and who may display varying degrees of behaviours that challenge. Our goal is to support each person to live a meaningful life and to integrate and participate in the community to the greatest extent possible.

Each resident has an individual, person-centred care-plan which is developed with them in collaboration with our team. The care plan sets out what care and supports the person requires as well as the activities which they enjoy. All of our residents are supported to choose and engage in personally meaningful activities in their homes and in the community and can access a broad range of enjoyable events and activities on a daily basis.

At the Talbot Group we make our care homes the “personal homes” of our residents. In particular, we ensure that each home is a welcoming, comfortable and safe place that residents genuinely feel is “their ‘home” and where they feel fully supported and cared for.
We also provide a separate Day Service for adults with disabilities in the busy village of Duleek Co Meath where those attending the service learn life skills to help them live and participate as independently as possible in their community.

We value our staff highly and provide ongoing training and support to ensure that all staff have the appropriate skills and knowledge required to care and support our residents in line with our values which are Dignity – Respect – Kindness and Engagement.

If you are seeking a care placement for a family member and interested in accessing the Talbot Group services at any time in the near future, then I would be delighted to arrange for one of my team to show you around.
