RTE Quartet plays for Bridhaven residents

Members of the RTE Quartet performing at Bridhaven Nursing Home recently.

Brídhaven Nursing Home in Mallow welcomed some special visitors recently when the RTE Quartet called in to play for the residents and staff. Residents enjoyed mince pies and hot chocolate with marshmallows, and some local schools and businesses produced some lovely Christmas-themed products for residents to browse and enjoy the retail experience. There was even a clothing stall and a no-cost raffle which went down a treat.

Director of Nursing
Bridhaven recently welcomed a new Director of Nursing, Joan Lowney, who is proving very popular with residents. Commenting on her appointment, Joan said, “My role as Director of Nursing and Person-in-Charge is very meaningful to me. My primary goal is to empower residents – to enable them to make choices and decisions in a supportive and nurturing environment, helping them feel part of their community, and having an excellent quality of life.
“I have more than 20 years of experience in aged care and retirement living, holding senior leadership roles in aged care facility management, commissioning roles, along with change management projects from refurbishments to implementing new initiatives.
“I am passionate about making a difference in people’s lives, not only for our residents but for those who care for them,” she said.
