Description
Our residents and families rest assured knowing that our team at Brittany is providing class-leading care. We are proud that Brittany House currently holds 4 year certification from the Ministry of Health, placing it within an elite group of homes independently assessed as providing very high quality of care.

With a long record of serving the residents of the wider region of the Hawkes Bay, Brittany House is an indispensable part of the local community.

Brittany House boasts what we believe are the biggest and best grounds of any free-standing Residential Care facility in New Zealand. Covering an impressive 1.3 hectares, our residents enjoy walking trails, rose gardens, aviaries, as well as uninterrupted views of college playing fields. Situated a mere 1.5 km from town, residents and families don’t have to compromise convenience when choosing Brittany House.

While the numerous buildings cover an exceptionally large scale, some of them have been decommissioned. This makes the building safer for our residents, as our staff concentrates their efforts within a more manageable physical space. This also allows us to focus our works within a space that will provide the maximum benefits for residents.

Our bed rooms are all of an especially large size, and provide plenty of living space for added comfort. The large size of our rooms is unusual in Residential Care homes, and is just another great feature you’ll enjoy at Brittany House. We have flexible accommodation options available, including single, couple, and companion rooms. No matter what your needs, we are confident we will have room that’s perfect for you.

If you’re looking for exceptional care in the Hastings or Hawkes Bay area, in a truly unique setting, then look no further than Brittany House Residential Care.

Testimonials
"Since being at Brittany House, I have naturally noticed many changes in Mother as I visit her several times a week and we have always had a warm and wonderful relationship and are very close to each other.I never in my wildest dreams thought she could make the adjustment to a Rest Home, so it was surprising to say the least when this happened in a very short space of time.The main reason for this has been Rose and her wonderful, ever expanding Activities Program. Mother very suddenly took on a second lease of life and many parts of her nature began to change.

She has taken a real interest in life in general and genuinely wants to participate in things, where as before she had been rather reclusive and often left things for other people to do for her. She has developed a real sense of independence and of herself. Her attitude now is to take each day as it comes, to try and take something out of everyday and to take the best of opportunities offered to her. She now has acquired this great sense of fun and adventure and will take part in things that before neither of us thought she would do. She has a great zeal for life and learning and takes an extremely active part in things – regardless of the results. She has really amazed me and I give her my total support for whatever she wishes to try and be a part of."
- Judy's Daughter

I have lived here for four years and enjoy every day. After all we are a family home – look after one another – if that is not love, what is? Here at Brittany House there are people coming here for the first time from other homes, but it's not long after moving in before friendships start up very quickly."

Interests & Activities
In a home where many residents live, it’s important to us to celebrate your individuality, make you feel valued, and respect your contribution.

Whether you want to read, paint, enjoy the outdoors, or almost any other thing imaginable, our care focusses on creating an environment where you have both the time and support to do what makes you happy. Our activities program is designed to give you a way to be part of the social life in the home, and also to do what you enjoy.

Activities programs are daily events staff facilitate with residents based on their preferences. Upon admission, our Activities Coordinator will work with care staff to understand your needs, and incorporate your preferences into the overall activity program.

Our unique activities program is run on a daily basis, and planned a week in advance. This means our residents and families can see what activities we are planning, and even make special requests.

Our activities teams regularly organize mobility vans or other transport to take residents out for special events. Some residents have complex levels of care, making it difficult for them to participate in activities. In these cases, we make every effort to move beds and wheelchairs into communal or outdoor areas, and to do what we can.

Please ask your local Manager about how we can accommodate you preferences in our activities programs.

HELPING YOU THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAYS

Our facilities are available to assist with short term care needs over the Holiday period 
 
If you are going on holiday and are worried about the care needs of your loved one during this time, Brittany House offers short-term care services to assist you. Our short-term residents can expect to enjoy the same great service as any of our other residents, including a full meal service, activities, clinical, and household services. 

Because many healthcare staff are on leave during the Holidays (they’re only human, after all!), sometimes there may be some frustration in trying to access healthcare services during this time. If this is the case, then we may also be able to assist.
 
Not sure if we can help? Give us a call on 0800 00 55 11 and we’ll try our best to assist.
