Apple Blossom Lodge in Armagh is a male only facility offering superior care for the elderly on a permanent or respite basis.
We have a team of highly trained professionals whose mission is to ensure all our residents are respected as individuals and treated with dignity and privacy. We try to give our residents as much independence as possible and encourage them to enjoy life to the full.
Residents have freedom to choose what to do and when from our extensive programme of activities. There is always something going on and our activities coordinator puts together a full itinerary including quizzes, sing-alongs, reminiscence therapy, indoor games, art and craft, baking and, wherever possible, trips out and about.
We encourage residents to invite friends and family to spend time with them at the care centre, whether it’s for a stroll in our gardens or to take part in an activity. Hot drinks and snacks are always available and visiting family and friends are invited to share a meal with residents. Our cook prepares three nutritious meals a day and the menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal produce. Special diets are catered for.
If you would like a tour of Apple Blossom Lodge or want to chat about the care we offer please get in touch on 028 3889 1202 or request a call back.
