Nuala O’Brien Centre

The Nuala O’Brien day centre opened its doors in September 1999, in response to a gap in service for the aging population of St. Hilda’s Services.

The name Nuala O’Brien is after one of the founding members of St. Hilda’s.

This service is currently being developed within our Adult Care Programme in response to the changing client profile; this programme as developed gives due cognisance to the medical and social needs of the older person.
