Facilities & Services
April Court Care Home benefits from two well furnished lounges where residents can enjoy company or have some quiet time if they prefer. Both lounges are located on the ground floor, at either end of the building and they can both host entertainment events, including musical afternoons, crafts, bingo and quizzes. Camaraderie, social interaction and the pursuit of an individual’s former interests play a big part in the day-to-day life. For those wishing to venture further afield, there are shopping trips and visits to places of interest nearby.
Meal times are an important part of the day and with advance notification, relatives are welcome to join residents for the occasional meal. For every resident, medical dietary requirements have to be taken into consideration when planning menu choices but we also ask about personal likes and dislikes. We offer a choice of 2 menu items (and any special request), changed regularly with seasonal variations and using fresh local produce wherever possible. Religious, vegetarian, vegan and other special diets are also catered for. With a daily wake up to a breakfast and morning coffee, residents can look forward to lunch, afternoon tea and an evening meal.
April Court Care Home employs a full-time Activities Co-ordinator and ensures that there is an ongoing programme of events which is tailored to the need of the Service Users. There may be either group activities or individualized pursuits reflecting hobbies and interests. All activities are advertised on the Notice Board. If a Service User is unable to access this information, he/she will be visited by the activities co-ordinator. For Service Users who may not wish to join in planned activities the staff will meet and plan their social needs on an individual basis. There are frequent planned outings to local places of interest for residents who are able to participate.
Visiting Performers entertain the Service users monthly throughout the year.
A Hairdresser and Chiropodist are available and visit April Court Care Home, fortnightly and monthly respectively.
