Add your own review for this service

This service provider has not received any reviews yet.

As the recent four-year audit report stated, St Andrews' care services are holistic and promote the residents' individuality and independence. Family and residents interviewed all spoke very positively about the care and support provided.
The service is commended for three continuous improvements in the area of good practice, organisational management and implementing quality improvement
projects. This audit identified no areas for improvement.

That report was a huge pat on the back for all at St Andrews and residents and their families can be reassured the best care and attention possible is provided.

Special Features
Special Features
St Andrews' hosiptal is home to residents needing a high level of care.

It's modern, sunny situation, dedicated staff and exceedingly high standard of meals are commented on by residents and visitors alike.

All Presbyterian Support Otago residences have a policy of valuing the lives of older people, and this is reflected in the many services and facilities offered.

Staffing levels in our hospitals are at the higher end for the sector, and a large percentage of caregivers have formal industry qualifications. A high level of physiotherapy input is also put in place, with a focus on maintaining or improving current mobility.

St Andrews is purpose-built and maintained to a high level, and residents have plenty of room in which to enjoy the wide range of activities continually available to them.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
Maintaining regular sporting and community activity our individual residents had before moving to St Andrews, is encouraged. We believe residents should maintain the connection they had with their family, friends and community, and will do all we can to ensure those connections are kept.

In-house, we have an extensive activities programme that includes exercise, quiz sessions, newspaper readings, guest speakers and entertainers, and Happy Hour is a very popular event.

There is great emphasis on outings, undertaken in comfortable vans, with events ranging from concerts to garden visits.

Some residents prefer to undertake hobbies and interests privately, or on a one-to-one basis, and we are happy to accommodate them.
