Sonas Village, located at Cloghanboy, Athlone promotes independent living in a friendly and safe environment.
The village is set in the peaceful yet secure grounds of Sonas Care Centre Athlone and is within a 10-minute walk of a bustling town centre offering a range of amenities.
The village is an exclusive development of one and two bedroom houses which offers an independent lifestyle but with 24/7 access if required to the care and services available at a nursing home on the same grounds. A central social centre, managed by a residents committee, provides a focal point for activities and services.
Managed and maintained by Sonas, the houses, each with a high specification, have a 24-hour emergency call system. Associated services include emergency nurse on call, nursing care, village maintenance, social centre maintenance, grounds and external maintenance of bungalows, and insurance.
Sonas Village in Athlone prides itself in creating a home-from-home for all its residents. These houses, which can be rented, provide a unique opportunity for older people to pursue an independent lifestyle in a safe environment.
Care packages are available and can be tailor-made to meet the individual needs of residents.
“From the moment we came to live here, I was very impressed with the great care and attention given to us. Living here gives you a sense of independence but you also know that you have the support and care of a team of nurses and carers if required. You have all the facilities you need and at the drop of a hat...It’s in an ideal location and you can go out for a drive or a walk with access to shops and amenities nearby. This is the type of life elderly people should have.” - Jim Byrne (89 ).
“I like it here, it’s very peaceful. I get up in the morning, I have my breakfast and then have one and a half hours of prayer. We also have Mass here and sometimes I get a taxi and go into town. I cook my own dinner, wash up and watch some television.” - Sr Phyllis Moran, a member of the La Sainte Union order.
