This service provider has not received any reviews yet.

Wimbledon Villa offers Rest Home, Dementia care and Hospital level care. We have 2 separate wings, each with a warm 'home like' environment.

Wimbledon Villa is privileged to be able to offer a SPECIALIST DEMENTIA CARE AREA within our home with staff trained to a very high standard. Our facility is based on "Eden Care" principles; a philosophy encouraging one's 'spark of life'.

We offer a very safe and secure environment but residents also have the freedom to come and go indoors and outdoors as they please and enjoy our lovely gardens and surroundings.
In liaising with Hammond Care Dementia Specialists in Sydney, Australia, (a world class Dementia specialist service), we have established two delightful interactive dementia specific courtyards.

Most of the home has been purpose built and is well furbished, with bright sunny rooms, many with en-suites.
The original homestead built in the 1880's has been retained.
Our bedrooms are very comfortable and warm and many have a view of our centralised landscaped gardens. Our home has won many local garden awards and is well known for its tailored outdoor living spaces.

Our staff are of the highest quality and you can be assured we are 100% committed to meeting all the needs of our residents while maintaining their individuality and rights.

Our Clinical Nurse Manager is a highly experienced Registered Nurse. In addition we have 6 other experienced Registered Nurses in our home.

We offer an excellent activities programme for all our residents with an experienced qualified Diversional Therapist.
All of our residents receive an individualised care programme with input from their family/whanau always sought.

Some of the things our home offers are:
We have an extensive activities programme run by our fully qualified Diversional Therapist and Activities Coordinator tailored to meet residents needs. Residents and families have input into the programme which includes a walking group, twice weekly outings, entertainment groups, pet therapy, and children who visit regularly.

In keeping with world best practice and the current MOH guidelines we have no more than 20 residents in each of our separately staffed wings. We have 24 hour a day Registered nurses working in our hospital care area.

Our outdoor areas have been designed in conjunction with Hammond Care Australia (a world authority on dementia environment design) to meet the specific outdoor needs of people with dementia.
Rather than vast open spaces our three outdoor areas provide ample, purposeful & tailored use of outdoor space. Sensory gardens, flowing water and many other features provide freedom, stimulation, peace and instill a feeling of safety for all our residents.
These areas are very functional with unrestricted access and designed specifically to support the person with dementia.

We have internal & external walking loops which allow residents to freely roam between indoors and outdoors.
There are also no dead end corridors which is very important for promoting residents sense of freedom and minimizing their confusion.

We do not use any form of restraint in our home.

We have numerous additional safety measures not always found in other homes.

We are only a mere 10 - 15 minute drive from Palmerston North. Our home is easily accessible to all residents and their families seeking specialist dementia care in the Manawatu area.

An information pack is available from the home and we invite anyone considering Dementia, Resthome or Hospital level care for their friend or relative to come and visit us first as part of their decision making process.

I cannot speak highly enough of Wimbledon Villa. My husband has been in Wimbledon for 5 months and he is so well looked after, they are wonderful in the way they care for him. The staff are all very caring and happy and have lots of patience caring for the resdients, nothing is a bother for them.
I, as my husbands wife, feel very happy and welcome to the Home to visit him each afternoon. Friends visiting Brian tell me how impressed they are with Wimbledon and I am more than happy that Brian is there.
