The Project and Dalton House
The Project was initiated by Nellie Brett, the manager of Dalton House Daycare Centre and Gowran Homes for the Elderly, in Gowran, Co Kilkenny. Nellie lives in Gowran and has managed Dalton House Day Care Centre since 2001. She was a founding member of the Gowran Homes for the Elderly when the project was first conceived on paper as a basic need to care for the Elderly within the community. As manager of Dalton House Daycare Centre she saw the need to develop services for the elderly in the community such as Respite, Meals on Wheels, In House Meals and Laundry. To compliment these essential services she then sought to develop more holistic services with Art and Craft Classes, a Book Club, Card Bingo, Music Evening and other social events which endeavour to cater for all the clients of Dalton House with the ethos of ‘’It’s the life in your years that counts not the years in your life’’
Dalton House Daycare Centre provides a holistic service for the care and well being of the elderly within the region. With the provision of meals for approximately 56 people six days a week on an ongoing basis, the centre services the needs of the elderly within their region providing laundry, basic daily services, respite, and occupational services. Dalton House Daycare Centre is a hub of activity and events based in the centre of the village of Gowran, promoting vibrant and active living with care and respect into an elderly age.
