Why Mingary Care?
Mingary Care (pronounced ming-gar-ree) means ‘a quiet place’ in Gaelic.
So why this name?
We believe that quiet reflection becomes more important as an individual nears the end of their life. Most times, we know that death is waiting for us - sometimes we have a long time to contemplate, and at other times, death can happen all too quickly. This is a time to seek inner solace as we make sense of our life, to put our affairs in order, perhaps to make peace with others and to use the time that is left to make ‘moments that matter’.
