Bupa Bethesda Care Home Audit Executive Summary (08 April 2019) Bupa Bethesda Care Home Audit Executive Summary (08 April 2019) Bupa Bethesda Care Home Audit Executive Summary (08 April 2019)

Bupa Bethesda Care Home is proud to be awarded another 4 years' certification (for the third year in a row) by the Canterbury District Health Board.

Bupa Bethesda Care Home is certified to provide rest home and hospital-level care for up to 91 residents. In addition to this a partial provisional audit was completed to assess the services preparedness for the opening of a 20-bed dementia unit by July 2019.  The number of rest home beds will be reduced from 45 to 25. The total number of beds available remains at 91. Also verified were 20 of the 46 hospital beds as suitable as dual-purpose beds.

Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

At Bupa Bethesda Care Home we offer rest home, hospital, and secure dementia care. Our Dementia Camellia Community has opened and we welcome you to come take a look. Please call us on (03) 359 6390 to find out more information on this new community in Christchurch.

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 Milly Cuesta, 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.
