Glo's Adult Care Centre is Jamaica's finest premier full service nursing home. The Centre offers the ultimate in comfort and service in the country's capital, Kingston. Every day is a new and exciting adventure at Glo's Adult Care Centre. The Adult Care Centre offers a chance for seniors to make new friends, laugh, learn and stay active at a location where it never snows.

The Centre's mission is to provide competent service, accurate information and hands-on support to families coping with taking care of a loved one. Since 1998, we have promised the families that we will provide services that would enable them to “glow with age, retire in comfort”. Our services are tailored to the unique needs of every client and their family. We provide cost effective and compassionate care for seniors and the disabled.

At Glo's Adult Care Centre, our goal is to help our seniors achieve the best quality of life possible. We understand that one solution does not fit every situation so we take the time to listen and learn about each client's needs and preferences. This enables us to tailor a care program that maximises the client's independence and dignity.

Understandably, most seniors prefer to stay in the familiar comfort of their own homes. So at our facility we provide a home away from home. Clients are allowed to bring their own personal items from home if they so desire such as a special chair. We arrange visits from physical therapists and medical doctors as requested. The facility has 24 hour security and is located in a lush green and quiet environment away from the everyday traffic in the city.

Medical doctors on call 24/7
Medications are available in house as needed
Private nurses are available upon request
Beautician and barber services available on request.
