Cowper Care was established in 1998 and is a ‘Not for Profit’ organisation. We are part of The Church of Ireland United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough. The Charity was founded to provide care, on an inter-denominational basis, as part of a pastoral response to an ageing population. It was also an objective to provide support and assistance for other Charitable Bodies operating Nursing Homes or Sheltered Accommodation and struggling to cope in a rapidly changing care landscape.

Our dynamic and progressive Nursing Home group offers an exciting opportunity for the right candidates to develop within our organisation.
