Located in the heart of Rathmines, Mount Anthony is a housing scheme for older people that supports independent living with a range of communal facilities and services.
The first phase of development at Mount Anthony consisted of 40 homes and was officially opened in November 1962. Further development was undertaken as finance became available, finally resulting in the provision of 112 homes by 1973. To learn more about the history of Mount Anthony, CLICK HERE.
Providing for the elderly became a major concern for Trustees and the Iveagh Trust was to the fore in Ireland in developing a model of supports to help older people live independently in their community for as long as possible.
Significant further expansion and modernisation began in the early 2000s while a major project to provide 61 one-bed apartments through a mix of new development and modernisation of existing units was completed in 2011.
There are now 143 homes at Mount Anthony, providing accessible and comfortable accommodation for older people in a supported setting.
A dedicated Tenant Liaison Officer is available to assist residents with any day-to-day issues they may have. Weekly tea parties, film & book clubs, bingo and other activities are hosted in the estate community room, while organised day trips around the country are also an important feature of life at Mount Anthony.
A visiting nursing service is available to tenants to provide a level of care and support in their own homes. Dedicated staff that both live and work at Mount Anthony are on hand year-round to provide a quality estate management service to residents.
An elected Residents’ committee meets regularly with the Director of Housing to discuss any issues that arise on the tenant’s behalf.
