About Burleigh Hill House

Situated in County Antrim's oldest town, Carrickfergus, Burleigh Hill House joined the MD Healthcare Portfolio of homes in 2016. The home is located beside Carrickfergus Golf Club and is less than a 5-minute drive from Carrickfergus town centre which borders Belfast Lough and boasts many local attractions such as Carrickfergus Castle, Carrickfergus Mill Ponds and Fisherman's Quay. It is a purpose-built home which has been established for over 20 years and provides comfortable and pleasant living for both nursing and residential needs.

Who we care for:

Burleigh Hill House has the capacity to provide nursing care for 33 residents and residential care for 23 residents. The care provided includes:

  • Nursing and Frail Elderly over 65 years
  • Nursing physically disabled
  • Residential and Frail Elderly over 65 years
  • Residential physically disabled

Our residents receive 24-hour care, delivered by our professional team of highly qualified Nurses and Healthcare Assistants.

Local GPs and other healthcare professionals visit the home regularly.

The Home

Most of our rooms are single, some are en-suite and there are four shared rooms which are particularly suitable for couples, siblings or friends or for those who enjoy the company of another person.  In addition to dayrooms and dining rooms there are quiet areas around the home for families and friends to gather and the recent addition of a beautiful summer house in the garden brings more variety for residents and provides greater opportunity to spend time outdoors. 

Our hairdressing salon is equipped to offer a truly enjoyable experience meeting the standards of any professional salon environment. Burleigh Hill House is easily accessed through public transport and had undergone a complete refurbishment in 2016. 


We take a holistic approach to caring for our residents and are passionate about providing engaging daily activities for those who wish to participate. The home has dedicated Activities Therapists who coordinate a calendar of activities and events for residents. These activities help to enrich resident’s lives through:

  • Exercise classes & armchair aerobics

  • Entertainment & local community visits

  • Gardening & music therapy

  • Arts, crafts & games

  • Hair & spa treatments

  • Reminiscence therapy

Activities not only mentally stimulate and physically motivate our residents but also enhance their quality of life and wellbeing.

Our Staff

We have a wide variety of people under our roof to ensure a high quality of care is provided. All staff complete mandatory training courses from health and safety, safeguarding through to dementia, moving and handling and more. This is delivered through our internally developed Optimum Inspire College providing face-to-face and online training. All nursing and care staff are registered with The Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or the Northern Ireland Social Care Council (NISCC).

Our homes are part of the ‘My Home Life’ programme which is part of an international initiative that promotes quality of life and delivers positive change in care homes for older people. Staff involved in the programme develop new and better ways of working benefiting the residents who live with us in our homes.

Finally, all our staff embody our company values of Teamwork & Partnership, Quality & Best Practice, Openness & Honesty, and Kindness, Understanding & Respect. Our values provide clarity for all our people and send a clear message to our residents and their families about the care and support they should expect from us.
