A Warm Welcome to Apple Blossom Lodge

Apple Blossom Lodge Care Centre offers a prime location just outside the city of Armagh. Set in its own grounds, the home offers the privacy of mature woodland; in addition to extensive gardens and a courtyard for our residents to enjoy. The home’s location offers residents the choice of  local amenities provided by both the towns of Armagh and Portadown.

Apple Blossom Lodge is an all male facility. Care is delivered 24hours daily by a dedicated team who are trained in the complexities of looking after the specialist care needs of adults and young people living with Dementia and Mental Health illnesses.

Residents avail of a full event and activity programme tailored to their likes and dislikes, so there is plenty going on to keep them busy. At Apple Blossom Lodge we aim to provide a ‘home from home’ atmosphere so our Residents are actively encouraged to take part in all decisions- contributing to everything from the way their room looks, to the therapies that they receive.

Every day we work to make our service even better.

Thanks to our pioneering digital technology, everyone is encouraged to record their suggestions for the kind of care they want using our very simple iPad system. Residents, families and visiting professionals such as GPs and social workers are all invited to offer their ideas to help us keep on raising our standards. Each day people are telling us what they like, or what they feel we could do better. All comments are received directly by our Home Manager who will take any necessary actions immediately. Rest assured, no care home provider is working harder to make every individual resident’s experience special.

Professional, practical and personal

Our team is made up of qualified naturally caring people who continue to build their skills with on-going training. As well as providing excellent professional care, our entire team is dedicated to fostering a sense of home and of belonging. That means taking plenty of time to understand individual residents, their likes and dislikes, and exploring all the ways we can make them happy and comfortable. It’s all about giving our residents and their loved ones the confidence that we’re providing the very best of care, and delivering special resident experiences every day.

Stimulation for body & mind

Our dedicated Activities Leader gently encourages residents to carry on doing the things they enjoy. Another aspect of helping our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. If they had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new. The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.

Mealtimes are a highlight of our day

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dieticians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can eat in our pleasant dining rooms or, if they prefer, we’re pleased to serve them their meal in the privacy of their own rooms.

All the comforts of home

Our home provides interiors and facilities that are modern and welcoming. We encourage all residents to make their bedrooms feel even cosier with personal touches such as cherished pictures, mementoes and small items of furniture.
