About Us

Bardan are partners in caring for the older population in local communities in Northern Ireland, with facilities in Newcastle, Dunmurry and Newry.

Bardan’s expertly trained staff work with primary care providers, families and individuals to provide quality care, support and early intervention in a safe and supportive environment.

Bardan provide accessible, stimulating activity in a quality setting

Consistent with individual’s assessed needs, Bardan provide accessible, stimulating activity in a quality setting, right in the heart of your community, with the aim of encouraging independence, health & wellbeing and ultimately allowing for the older members of our communities to live longer in their own homes.

Bardan operates under a model of person-centred care

By creating meaningful relationships, eradicating the negative effects that can come with isolation and loneliness, and providing support, not only to clients but also to their families, Bardan operates under a model of person-centred care designed to intervene early in order to avoid deterioration and offer a cost effective alternative to full-time residential or nursing care.

Our History

Liam Lavery and Peter Graham opened the doors of Bardan Cottage senior centre in Newcastle County Down in March 2011, followed by the Kingsway, Dunmurry day care centre in June 2015, and Newry in June 2021.

Emerging against the backdrop of a growing older population which is by its nature putting pressure on the hospital provision, Bardan’s aim has always been to promote independence and re-ablement in order to address this major growing issue. Liam and Peter identified the wider strategic need for a safe, supportive and stimulating environment for our older generations to receive individualised, outcome focused, quality interventional care that can reduce the strain placed upon individuals, families and local governments.
