Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Anne Maree Court Care Home, a beloved establishment known for providing exceptional care to its residents, is undergoing a change in ownership. The new owners are dedicated to ensuring the facility offers top-notch services while introducing several exciting updates to enhance the residents' experience.
One of the notable improvements brought about by the new ownership is a fresh coat of paint throughout the care home. This renovation not only brightens up the environment but also creates a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere for both residents and visitors alike.
In addition to the refreshed interior, another outstanding update is the installation of televisions in all bedrooms. This thoughtful addition allows residents to enjoy their favorite programs from the comfort of their own space, offering them a sense of relaxation and entertainment whenever desired.

With a warm and welcoming atmosphere, Anne Maree Court Care Home strives to provide a homely feel to all residents. The staff at Anne Maree Court are dedicated and passionate about providing exceptional care, ensuring that each resident feels comfortable and well taken care of.
The rest home itself is designed with the comfort of the residents in mind, boasting beautiful interiors and spacious common areas. It has a cozy and inviting ambience that makes it feel more like a home rather than an institutional setting.

The staff members at Anne Maree Court are known for their genuine compassion and commitment to their work. They provide round-the-clock care and support, ensuring that the specific needs of each resident are met. Whether it is assistance with daily activities, medical care, or simply being there for emotional support, the staff goes above and beyond to make sure residents feel safe and cared for.
In addition to the dedicated staff, Anne Maree Court offers a range of services and amenities to enhance the quality of life for its residents. This includes nutritious meals prepared on-site, and recreational activities to promote social interaction and access to healthcare professionals. The facility also prioritises regular communication with family members to keep them informed about their loved one's well-being.

Special Features
Anne Maree Court became part of the Anne Maree Group of homes/hospitals with the sister home/hospital Anne Maree Gardens in Avondale.

The Philosophy of the Anne Maree Group, encourage the importance of fun and laughter and the belief that everyone has potential.

The Manager of Anne Maree Court has a passion for education and dementia care.

The Manager looks for the potential in everyone and seeks ways in which to extend the individual. This applies to staff and residents, as the Manager believes everyone likes to give their best.

Staff are encouraged and trained to help residents retain or regain skills. This helps residents retain their dignity. It is a goal of the service to rehabilitate residents wherever possible.

The value of each person and the building of a caring Whanau/family environment is paramount. A simple but meaningful example is that everyone should be acknowledged as they are met or passed during the course of the days activities. Staff at the hospital acknowledge the importance of relationships during all the stages of life. Companionship is therefore encouraged and staff know to respect residents privacy.

It is management policy to be very flexible in how services are delivered and aim to anticipate needs before they arise. The service is likely to be able to offer solutions to those situations that you may consider being 'tricky'. We have an open door policy with regard to residents and staff. Everyone at Anne Maree Court knows that they can speak to the manager about anything at any time.

The building is 'tucked away' in a suburban street and was built initially as a facility for those with intellectual disabilities. The building surrounds a central courtyard area. Individual rooms have easy indoor-outdoor flow and are linked to the continuous corridor. Alternative access and egress can be made via the covered walkway dissecting the central courtyard. A thorough building and grounds maintenance programme has been implemented to ensure the safety of residents, staff and their families.

We believe all residents are at risk of falling, strategies are implemented to minimise this such as exercise programmes and purchasing of dining room chairs with arms (so residents can get up from the tables easily) etc.

Anne Maree Court is a multicultural community with staff who speak multiple languages from Indian, Tongan, Filippino to Cantonese. You never know what the staff there can offer - contact the Manager to find out more.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
The activity programme plays a central role in the daily life of the Hospital. The activity programme never finishes so activities are underway all day.

Activities programmes include outside entertainment, as well as visits from the Outreach Society (pet therapy programme). With a Diversional Therapist on seven days a week, the communal lounge is never short of a game of golf, bowls or bingo. The options at Anne Maree Court are endless and staff are always keen to add to their big pool of ideas and games.

Management appreciate all that the staff do and this appreciation is demonstrated in a variety of little ways eg personally acknowledging those who come up with good ideas and the giving of 'Angel of the Month' awards. Management also provide free meals for the staff. Team spirit amongst the staff is important. Everyone plays an important part with none more important than another.
