The Northern Standard has learned that thirty jobs are to be created at Castleross Nursing Home, Carrickmacross.

This week owner and manager of the facility Paul McCoy explained that the thirty jobs will be created across the disciplines of nursing care, carers and housekeeping.

Castleross offers two services, a nursing home and a retirement village.

The nursing home is based on a household model of care. There were four households and now there will be five. Bed numbers will rise from 98 to 123 and each resident has their own en-suite bedroom.

The retirement village, is comprised of 31 two bedroom houses, where people can opt for independent or assisted living.

Recruitment has already began but jobs are still available across all disciplines. There are currently 120 people employed in the Castleross complex and this number will rise to 150.

Mr. McCoy told The Northern Standard: “It’s great to be able to create so many jobs in the locality, €2.5 million is being invested in this place, which represents a large investment in the area.”
