Management and Facilities

The home is managed by a Debbie Roberts who has responsibility for all the services offered, in addition to the overall running of the home. Debbie has worked at Monte da Palhagueira for over 17 years, having moved to the Algarve in 1986.

Management and Facilities

Three meals are served each day, either in one of our two dining rooms or on the poolside terrace, and can also be taken to a resident’s room if required. Activities are arranged throughout the week, with occupational therapy sessions organised in four weekly sessions.

A secluded swimming pool, with ample seating and extensive views across the surrounding countryside, provides the ideal location to relax and recuperate.

The village mini bus makes a weekly trip to Loulé, with its bustling community and large, modern supermarket, or to Almancil. Each Friday, residents can enjoy a weekly coffee morning and once a month a village luncheon takes place at the Le Marquis Restaurant within the village itself.

Weekly visits from an English Doctor, Doctor Thomson, who’s practice is at Quinta do Lago Medical Centre, are made each Monday, giving residents the chance to consult and discuss any medical conditions that require extra diagnosis. In addition, Dr. Kaiser from Vale do Labo also visits the home, as does a registered physiotherapist.
