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.
