Care of our Dad

We as a family would like to sincerely thank all staff at St Clair Park for the care they have given our Father especially when he took ill and was admitted to Dunedin Public when they made sure that our Dad was not alone at any time as we were 2 1/2 hours away and was heartening to see my Dads hand being held when we arrived at the hospital. We have found all staff very caring and we are always made very welcome each time we visit.

Restrictions - critical visitors only
St Clair Park is passionate about providing people who live with dementia, choice and continued independence in all aspects of their life. Our unit has a secure outdoor garden area with sensory smells and ornaments. St Clair Park focuses on a persons long term memory (memory bank) and has designed a 60's / 70's styled room. The staff team encourage and support people to safely continue with the usual daily activities, making a cup of tea, getting the mail in, doing the gardening and have a varied range of engaging activities within the unit.
