Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
The reassurance of quality is built in to everything we do at The Russley. However, nowhere is the requirement for reassurance more important than within our care suites.

Our Care Suites with private ensuites have been designed to offer spacious and upscale residential care up to hospital level. Each feature a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave and refreshment making facilities conveniently situated within the entry lobby of the suite, allowing for functional separation and a sense of residence.

The cabinetry within the care suite has been carefully considered to be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Crafted storage space for clothing and footwear, as well as a built in sideboard for residents personal objet d’art and memory accoutrements. All care suites boast a 55 inch television for resident enjoyment. Upholstered bed heads add a residential feel, with an reversible coverlet affording personal choice.

The window treatments have both fabric drapes to soften the room and add a sense of home; as well as sun blinds to provide residents the flexibility with light and privacy. All suites have been designed to accommodate an integrated ceiling hoist should our residents require. Individually controlled air conditioning enable residents to personalise their care suite temperature.

Ashley Care Suites offers familiarity where quality of life is not compromised.

The Ministry of Health conducts regular audits of Residential Care Facilities. They can be found HERE.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.

In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
