Key features of our memory care centre:

- Care is provided by staff trained in dementia in a purpose-built, safe, homely environment

- Our industry-leading memory care centre design is based on world-class dementia living.

- Centre design is based around circular architecture so residents can always find their way back to the main area

- There are secure outdoor garden areas and inviting, communal lounge, living and kitchen area

- Sensor technology is installed in every memory care apartment. Sensors are programmed to each resident's most common movements and routines.
If the cycle is broken at any stage, a silent nurse call system alerts caregiver pagers so residents always have help at hand

- A diverse activities programme is offered seven days a week focused on meeting individual needs

- Prospective residents will have been independently assessed by the DHB as requiring rest home dementia care.
