The Westgate Foundation was established in 1985 and was originally operating from a small Community Centre premises on Station Road. The move to the current grounds in Ballincollig was made in 2002 and was presided over by President Mary McAleese.
The Westgate Foundation operates on principles of the highest calibre and focuses on the well-being of all of its clients, residents and Members of the wider Community, with great emphasis on dignity, communication, education, and social, physical and mental health.
The highlighting of elder abuse is also a concern that is very close to the heart of those who work and contribute to the running of The Westgate Foundation. A cause that can be in no way understated. The Management and staff here at Westgate are constantly striving to raise awareness of this situation to the greater public and will continue to do so at every opportunity.
