Nursing Home

24-hour care from a team of qualified professionals

A beautifully converted 19th century quinta, the nursing home is situated in the northern corner of the estate. Monte da Palhagueira offers 24-hour care from a team of qualified nurses and care assistants.

The 16 rooms on two floors each have their own individual character, and many have patios or balconies overlooking the beautiful grounds with views of the surrounding countryside.

The home provides nursing, respite and convalescent care, and has a residents’ dining room, physiotherapy unit, hairdressing service, and secluded swimming pool.

Open to both residents and non-residents of Monte da Palhagueira, the nursing home also offers day care services.

Management and facilities

Our exceptional nursing care staff led by Hazel Gordon, supported by Debbie Roberts, treat all our residents with respect, dignity and friendship in a warm family atmosphere. 

They work closely with you and your loved ones to tailor each care package to your specific wishes and requirements, making sure the level of care is exactly right. 

All our residents enjoy three delicious meals each day, either in one of two dining rooms, on the poolside terrace, or in their own rooms.  

Social events play a key role, with activities organised throughout the week and a minibus on hand for making excursions to local sights and attractions.

Doctors and registered physiotherapists visit residents regularly to discuss our residents’ ongoing care needs.

I wanted to live surrounded by a lovely garden, but no gardening to do; have the use of a swimming pool without having to clean it and have a reasonably secluded apartment but with help on hand if I wanted it. Monte da Palhagueira provided all of this.
