Our Home is really focused on ensuring residents
are in a calm environment with the knowledge they are free to
live how they choose to.

Located on the outskirts of the market town of Callan, Aperee Living Callan is a modern, purpose built home which provides significant care standards for our sixty residents.  All our sixty rooms are single en suite and provide a spacious relaxing environment coupled with a large, secure, and beautifully maintained outdoor sensory garden for our residents to relax and enjoy.

At Aperee Living Callan, we have created a happy home for our residents. We offer our residents great independence and quality of life through the wide range of supports delivered by our experienced team. Our team are committed to creating a safe and homely environment, where you can enjoy lots of activities and avail of support whenever you need it.

At Aperee Callan our aim is to give each resident special attention and care and make sure we give them what they need. We deliver our care in an atmosphere of warmth and kindness, and we deliver it in a holistic way, looking after your mind as well as your body.

Whether you’re an indoor or outdoor person, you’ll find lots of lovely places to relax in our nursing home. Take a walk in our peaceful enclosed gardens and soak up nature. Enjoy some activities in our lounge or have a peaceful read in our quiet room. You’re welcome to bring your visitors to one of our many sitting rooms for a relaxing chat while you look out at the scenic rolling countryside of South Kilkenny. And if you want a peaceful place to reflect, you’re welcome to go to our oratory. Meanwhile, we celebrate Mass in our main sitting room once a week, where we also say the rosary every day.

Events and activities are a huge part of life at Aperee Living Callan. We create a full calendar of activities throughout the year for you to enjoy, and we value your help in putting this calendar together. We’ll do all we can to help you stay active, because we know this makes a big difference to people’s physical and emotional wellbeing.

We believe that regular exercise will help you keep strong and moving as you grow older, so we offer lots of exercise classes and floor exercises. These are very enjoyable and easy for anyone to do. We combine them with social activities like baking and flower arranging, which help you use the skills you’ve built up over a lifetime.

Our lounge is a lively place full of chat and activity. You can play cards or bingo, join in a sing song or watch TV or a film. It’s a great place to meet and socialise with other residents. We know that a good social life is a great mood booster, and we see our lounge as a valuable social outlet.
Our dedicated activities coordinator and care team enjoy helping our residents plan activities. They’ll chat with you to find out what you like doing and suggest activities that fit your interests. This also gives peace of mind to your loved ones, who can rest assured that you’re happy and settled in our nursing home.
