Summerset by the Ranges offers rest home-level dementia care in a purpose-built, safe and homely environment.

With a circular architectural design that ensures residents can always find their way back to the main lounge area, Summerset by the Ranges dementia centre has a secure outdoor garden area and warm, inviting communal areas inside, as well as additional features to reduce noise levels. The centre also offers: a silent nurse call system linked to staff pagers so residents always have help at hand, and a full activities programme and weekly outings.

Within the centre are Care Suites - one bedroom apartments which offer more freedom and independence. Friends and family are welcome to stay overnight. Each Care Suite features a unique carpeted wall for residents to personalise and display photos, enabling them to recognise their home, family and friends.
Modelled on international dementia design standards, the Care Suites offer apartment-style living, allowing people living with dementia to continue to lead active, productive lives.

Our trained staff provide personally tailored dementia care, including individual and group activities. We work closely with our residents and their families to understand and support them with the changes they are going through.

Please contact Monique, our Care Centre Manager, on 06 367 9192 or visit https://www.summerset.co.nz/levin/living-and-care-options/care-options/dementia-care for more information.
