Edmonton Meadows Care Home is a one level facility in West Auckland. It has well manicured grounds with spacious open environment tucked away from the main road.
We encourage complaints. Your relative will never be disadvantaged by a complaint being made. Complaints draw our attention to the things we are not doing well and give us the opportunity to improve our service. By improving the service our business will grow. We therefore think of complaints in a very positive light and thank people for bringing them to our attention.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
Our activity programme is managed by our Diversional Therapist. She attends all meetings for Diversional Therapy in Auckland.
We are members of 'Dementia Care Australia' and are in regular contact with Jane Verity the founder, who is a world leader in dementia care. Our clients therefore benefit from having access to the latest thinking (research), programmes and treatments for dementia care. We also make use of her videos, workbooks and materials. The practical strength is that, since we have begun using this programme, the residents thinking skills and independence have improved.
