Gheel specialises in providing residential services in a personalised home-like atmosphere for our residents. Our residential service consists of 46 residential beds within seven houses and an apartment. Three of these houses are within the Fairview complex alongside the Day Centre. These have been purpose built and are surrounded by landscaped gardens. There are two traditional community houses on the North Circular Road which are within easy access to local amenities. There is a community house and apartment situated in Sandyford, which is on the south side of the city, near the Dublin Mountains. There is another community house in Maynooth, Co. Kildare. There are also single-person occupancy units, one situated in Maynooth and another in Killester, Dublin.
It is our aim to develop our services both qualitatively and quantitatively in conjunction with the Health Service Executive.
Staff teams are responsible for the care and welfare of the six residents who live in each house. Each team comprises of four staff, two male and two female, one of whom is the Social Care Leader who has overall responsibility for managing and organising the house. One male staff and one female staff are always on duty and work opposite their counterparts on the other shift.
