We are continually listening and improving so that we can enhance and develop ways to ensure the best possible quality of life for all who live, work and visit the home. 

We strive to provide a homely atmosphere throughout the premises which is further enhanced by the warmth and welcome of the central area which encourages all to participate in social activities and to integrate with friends and visitors.

Aperee Living Tralee is located close to the town, Siamsa Tire, Shopping Centres, Sliabh Mish mountains and to the sea. This enables our residents the opportunity to partake in community and social activities.

High Standard of Living

Bedrooms are designed using the same inclusive design principles as common areas and can be personalised for each resident through the inclusion of their chosen personal belongings. Bedrooms are spacious and private or semi-private, with private en suite bathrooms and TV. Nurse call buttons and other safety measures are standard throughout the Home both in private and communal spaces.

As food is such an important part of daily life for us all, Aperee pays special attention to both the broader dining experience (décor, seating, crockery, utensils) as well as the daily menu.

The décor in dining areas creates a warm and inviting environment where residents look forward to sitting with friends to enjoy the varied and nutritious meals on offer. The décor is enhanced by carefully chosen crockery and utensils, suitable for all abilities and dining garments used to protect clothing are tasteful and dignified.

Aperee Chefs and catering staff are carefully selected for their passion for good quality, Home-cooked and interesting food. The catering team is led by our Group Catering and Hospitality Manager who has worked as a Head Chef for many years, and who demands high standards from her team. With her significant experience in working with older adults, our Group Catering and Hospitality Manager understands the importance of nutrition and hydration, food choice and food safety. Aperee works closely with experts in the area of food and food safety and delivers ongoing training to staff in new advances in menu design, food safety, allergens, etc.

Each Aperee Home has a variety of lounges and common areas, and can accommodate small, cosy gatherings as well as larger group activities such as personal or resident parties, performances, etc. Residents can choose the environment that suits their mood on any given day whether that is a need for personal quiet time, uninterrupted time with family or time with friends who share the Home with them.

All Aperee Homes feature a landscaped and user-friendly garden space designed with resident leisure and safety in mind. Gardens are planted seasonally, often with the assistance and advice of green-fingered residents who have an interest in being involved. Gardens feature outdoor seating, raised beds, and where the layout of the garden and resident safety facilites it, water features, green houses/polly tunnels and nature walks. Each garden has paved patio/seating areas where residents can sit in the warm sunshine shaded by our colourful umbrellas and hats. Special care is taken to protect our residents sensitive skin from the sun and sun glasses, sunscreen and other protection measures are the norm.

Nursing care is delivered in a compassionate, human and person centred way. The delivery of person centred care has a significant impact on quality of life for residents. It is a way of thinking and doing things that sees the resident as an equal partner in planning, developing and monitoring their own care to ensure the care provided meets their needs.

There are many different types of dementia. The two most common types are Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. People with dementia have unique and complex needs. A person with Dementia faces the challenge of changes in how they remember, think, communicate and do everyday things. Aperee’s team of professionally trained staff are skilled in understanding the challenges and dilemmas that having dementia poses to the individual and their families.

Aperee offers respite care in all its Homes providing a safe transition from hospital to home, or providing long term care givers with short term support in the provision of care for a loved one.

Respite care is short term care (usually one to two weeks, but more if necessary) that enables a person to transition from an acute hospital setting to their own home in a phased and supported manner. It is also a service that provides care givers with relief by temporarily taking over caregiving duties. This allows the primary caregiver some time to rest and recuperate in the knowledge that their loved one is being well looked after. Primary caregivers can then continue providing care refreshed and with renewed energy and interest.
