Description
At Bupa Bethesda Care Home we offer rest home, hospital, and secure dementia care. Our Dementia Camellia Community will open in September 2019 - please call us on (03) 359 6390 to find out more information on this new level of care we are excited to be offering the local Canterbury community.

Our Bupa care home is located in the heart of Bishopdale, only 10 minutes from Christchurch airport, plus the local Bishopdale Village Mall is a short 450m walk down the road. And we also conveniently have a bus stop located out the front of our Christchurch care home.

Focusing on making each day the best it can be for your loved one is important to us. We take the time to get to know each resident so that our care can be personalised, respecting each person’s likes, dislikes, and preferences.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please call Chris McCulloch, care home manager, or feel free to visit us.

Alternatively, our community liaison coordinator, Sarah (027 273 2113), can help you with information about moving into a care home, and inform you about the choice of Bupa care homes in Christchurch.

As Bupa Bethesda Care Home's Chris McCulloch, Care Home Manager and Mark Bravo, Unit Coordinator take families on tours of their new dementia community, their smiles show a team full of pride in their new development.

They have much to be proud of, the 20 bed dementia community opens to the public this week, welcoming their first two residents. September is Dementia Awareness Month and Christchurch has a real shortage of care homes for those living with dementia.

Chris says the community has been asking for more focus on dementia in Christchurch for a long time and the new community will go some way to fulfilling the need for more dementia specialist care.  

"We're really pleased to open our community for people living with dementia. It's a safe and warm environment with gardens surrounding the rooms and comfortable lounge areas for families and residents to relax. I'm sure people will be very comfortable here," Chris says.        

More good news for Bupa Bethesda as the care home recently received its third consecutive four-year accreditation from the Ministry of Health.

"I'm so proud of the team here, they work so hard for the residents and our track record speaks for itself," Chris added.  

With 70,000 Kiwis living with dementia, Alzheimers New Zealand predicts the number will increase to more than 170,000 by 2050. 

Earlier this year, Bupa was named the first aged care provider to receive the national Dementia Friendly Award from Alzheimers New Zealand.


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