This service provider has not received any reviews yet.

With a focus on specialised, high dependency long term care for people with Dementia, Firth Lodge is a secure and protected living environment.
Residing at Wesley Village allows you as a relative and visitor to relax and enjoy the good things in life.
Wesley has ready access to Public Transport,a Central Auckland location with Cafes,Parks,Gardens and shops within 1-2kms.

We also host an active Respite Programme which aims to accommodate a person for a one-off or regular respite period.

All potential residents and their families are encouraged to visit the facility to develop familiarity with the accommodation layout, as well as outline specific requirements and considerations for staff to plan, implement and monitor long term.

Upon arrival, residents are introduced to their assigned Registered Nurse, and Primary Carer who will be their primary care providers. A short-term care plan is prepared, and a medical examination is completed.

The allocation of permanent care staff to residents facilitates the rapid settling-in experience at Wesley, and enhances the support relationship with visiting family and friends.

In the case of respite residents, their families and the Respite Program Coordinator convene to review the stay at Wesley, targeting improvement opportunities for future Respite Program stays.

'Special thanks to Wesley and Firth Lodge Staff for their patient care.Sheila's family in Australia also asked to thank you.I had told them that she was in the right place.
Her friend was always pleased to see her well looked after as was I."
