Our Residential Centres

Solis MMC Children’s Services currently operates residential centres in Louth, Wicklow, Westmeath, Cork and Limerick. The Purpose and Function of our centres varies to include Emergency Respite, Short-Term Respite, Medium-Long Term Residential and Medium-Long Term Residential specifically for children with physical disabilities.

The residential centres are generally in rural areas but are within a short driving distance to urban centres and various local amenities such as shops, schools, doctors and recreational centres. Solis MMC aim to create a homely environment within each of our residential centres and seek young people’s opinions and influence in furnishing and decorating the home. Each young person can personalise their bedroom in line with their taste and interest. Their Placement Plan will be developed based upon their assessed and self-assessed needs and, importantly, their social and recreational interests that will help inform their daily plans.
