Latest News » Fold Ireland to Develop Older Persons Housing in Louth
Fold Ireland are excited to be working with Louth County Council on proposals to deliver much needed housing for older people in the region. Plans are advanced on a number of sites in Drogheda and Dundalk. The new purpose built schemes will promote positive ageing and independent living for older people. All Fold housing includes Fold Telecare which is Fold’s technology platform and provides, among other things, 24-hour assistance and reassurance for residents should they need it. The new homes will appeal to older people who may wish to downsize from larger houses in the area to something more manageable.
Fold Ireland has provided apartments and houses for older people and families in the greater Dublin area since 2001. In addition the organisation provides supported housing with 24 hour care for frail and older people. Fold Ireland was originally synonymous with housing and support for older people with dementia.
Fold Ireland began operations with two state-of-art housing-with-care schemes located at Anam Cara, Glasnevin, and Cherryfields, Hartstown, Dublin which accommodate 56 residents in each, supported, around the clock, by care staff. In addition, Fold provides independent housing in various other locations in Dublin and Meath.
