Silver Stream healthcare group to create 500 jobs

DUBLIN: The Silver Stream healthcare group, which manages a number of care homes across Ireland, is to create 500 full time jobs. The new openings will be in nursing, physiotherapy, care assistants and home facilities.

The healthcare group, which runs care homes in Dublin, Meath, Wicklow, Cork and Tipperay, is opening three new nursing homes in Riverstick in Cork, Duleek in Meath and at Dundalk in Louth.

The group says the new homes will bring its current bed capacity to 750 and will also double its current bed capacity in single and double ensuite rooms.

The Silver Stream is one of the largest providers of residential care for older citizens in the country. The company also plans to increase the number of care homes it runs to 11.

The Taoiseach opened the facility at Riverstick this morning. It will provide a transitional step-down care centre, which is aimed at relieving some of the demand for acute beds at CUH. This is in association with the HSE and Cork University hospital.
