New vacancies have become available due to the progression of current nurses to senior positions and rarely do you find an organisation where nurses stay as long as they do at St Joseph’s. It is a testament to the support and rewarding work you can expect to receive by joining their dynamic team.

There are 88 beds within the centre, in addition to fourteen group homes within the greater North Dublin Region. At present the age profile of patients would include adults throughout the lifespan.

The vision for St. Joseph’s Intellectual Disability Service is to provide services in the most comfortable setting to meet the clients need and strive to maximise independence. In addition, they aim to provide the specialist service of Mental Health care and treatment for people with an Intellectual Disability both in an acute setting, and by assertive outreach services.
