Apple Mews has been developed to provide residential care for up to 30 individuals with learning disabilities, autism and complex physical disabilities. Our dedicated and experienced staff provide nursing care and a range of programmes to support the development of independence and life skills. Residents also have access to daily activities including arts, music, education, sensory and outdoor activities.
The homely and comfortable environment here at Apple Mews has been designed to enable person-centred care and to assist people who cannot live in their own homes to maintain as much independence as possible.
Our approach to care
Our service is run by an experienced manager, who is supported by a team of trained nurses and support workers. We believe in a multidisciplinary approach to care, which is why we work closely with other professionals including GPs, medical professionals, speech and language therapists (SaLT), dieticians, specialised regional roles, social workers, chiropodists, opticians and community psychiatric nurses.
We hold the philosophy that each person should take the lead in their care programme. We understand that each person has different needs, interests and hobbies, which is why personal input is so important.
Living at Apple Mews
Apple Mews organises day trips to places of interest, as well as holidays that are further afield. Residents are invited to suggest ideas for these trips at our regular meetings, which also provide individuals with the chance to provide feedback about their care.
There is a wide range of in-house activities including board games, and outings to swimming pools and other local facilities are easily organised. We have a quiet room where individuals can access a safe and secure computer. Our life skills coach organises a range of daily activities both in and out of the home that are planned in conjunction with the wishes of those who use our service.
Situated in Cathedral Road, Armagh we are conveniently located near good public amenities including pubs, cinemas cafes and swimming pools. Apple Mews is easily accessible by public transport.
Apple Mews is made up of five bungalows, each containing six en-suite bedrooms. Each bungalow is designed to create a homely atmosphere and yet has facilities to meet the physical complex needs such as overhead hoists in bedrooms etc.
Our property is modern and is specially designed to provide a cosy and homely feel for those who use our service. Each room is fully furnished and can easily be personalised at an individual's request.
We have spacious rooms where everyone can relax and entertain their visitors; the rooms are equipped with televisions and radios for everybody's enjoyment. We have a separate area where individuals can socialise and enjoy their favourite beverage.
