History

For many years nurse Laura Mohan had a dream to open a leading nursing home and provide the best possible care with home like atmosphere .

Her friend and businessman, Derek Bell, made that dream a reality. He had personal experience of just how impersonal nursing institutions could be when a family member required nursing care. This drove him to ensure Movilla would be different. In 1989 they opened Movilla House Nursing Home, a purpose built nursing home set in two acres of delightfully wooded gardens and lawns.

Although Laura sadly passed away in 2001 her dream lives on. Movilla is still independently owned and Derek has surrounded himself with the most qualified and dedicated team of care home professionals available. He, along with Home Manager, Tracey Anderson have a policy of continual improvement in the quality of care they provide in beautiful homely surroundings.

Since it opened its doors in 1989 Movilla has become a trusted name in care. More than 1000 people have called Movilla their home at one time or other. While one resident lived here for 20 years, most have stayed for much shorter periods of time. Residents may be here for a few years or just a couple of weeks depending on whether their stay is for respite, to convalesce or long term residence.
