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

Woburn home has a separate secure Dementia wing that can accommodate 11 residents in single rooms.

Wakelin wing has recently been upgraded with new flooring, new curtains, new paintwork and new furniture.
The wing is set out so that residents can not only walk around inside but the path outside leads around the building too.

An RN is available 24 hours a day if needed.

All staff working in the unit are completing or have completed units appropriate to the care of dementia residents.

Most of the residents are able to join in activities in the rest home during the day.

Special Features
Special Features
Our modern, purpose-built dementia unit caters for the needs of 11 residents. Each resident has their own beautifully appointed room, and all have views onto gardens. Because this is a secure unit, the facility has secure walkways through gardened and paved areas that lead the resident back into the facility. The unit itself is set up in a circular layout, so that there are no "dead ends" to confuse residents. With modern shower and bath facilities, an internal courtyard and newly made grassed area with outdoor furniture to sit and enjoy our sunny days, the dementia wing is an asset to Central Hawkes Bay.

At Woburn we try to help residents maintain their independence for as long as possible, especially if they are physically able to be directed in such activities as making their own bed, keeping their room tidy, or doing any small chores that they may want to do, such as helping to lay or clear the tables.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
We have an active diversional therapy program and activities specifically designed for dementia unit residents.

We encourage residents to join in the activities, such as crafts, music, reading and games.
We can also tailor activities to suit residents needs and abilities especially around Sundowning time in the afternoons.

A special treat for the Dementia residents and some rest home residents is a Spa Bath.
The dementia residents can enjoy a spa on any day whereas the Rest home residents have to work with a roster on Thursdays.

Wakelin Wing residents spend a lot of their time enjoying activities and friendships with the Rest Home residents during the week. They especially enjoy Fridays when family members join in and everyone has a wine, beer or soft drinks with snacks, with musical entertainment provided.
