In 1825, the Eustace family opened a hospital on the present site in Whitehall.  For the past 187 years, the family has been deeply involved in the care of people with mental health and Alzheimer-related illnesses. Current family members working in the hospital represent the sixth generation of continuous involvement by the family. (www.highfieldhealthcare.ie)

Highfield’s philosophy is a simple one; to provide a strong caring environment and a dedication to meet the needs of all individuals within their care. They have continuously sought to modernise and upgrade its facilities.  Highfield Healthcare opened Ireland’s first dedicated Alzheimer Centre for residential care in 1991. They now run parallel services which provide critical support in all aspects of residential, day and respite care, out-patient and domiciliary assessment, information help-lines and support groups.
