When independent living is no longer a safe option, moving into a supported environment is a sensible choice. Offering hospital and dementia levels of care, Presbyterian Support Otago's Enliven home in South Dunedin – St Andrews – is that sensible choice.

Encouraging residents to be as independent as possible; to make choices in the things that matter to them, is part and parcel of Enliven services.

Here at St Andrews you will find some things make for happier, healthier living, no matter what your age. A sense of community; friends, family and whanau; giving and receiving; making decisions for yourself; and most of all, practical support when you need it.

At Enliven we work alongside you and your family to achieve these things.

St Andrews carries Ministry of Health four-year certification - confirming this popular home provides the very best care to residents.

Give St Andrews Manager Lynley Chirnside a call on 03 455 4396 and come as see for yourself.

St Andrews hosiptal is home to residents needing a high level of care.

It's modern, sunny situation, dedicated staff and exceedingly high standard of meals are commented on by residents and visitors alike.

Staffing levels in our hospitals are at the higher end for the sector, and a large percentage of caregivers have formal industry qualifications. A high level of physiotherapy input is also put in place, with a focus on maintaining or improving current mobility.

St Andrews is purpose-built and maintained to a high level, and residents have plenty of room in which to enjoy the wide range of activities continually available to them.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
Maintaining regular social and community activity our individual residents had before moving to St Andrews, is encouraged. We believe residents should maintain the connection they had with their family, friends and community, and will do all we can to ensure those connections are kept.

In-house, we have an extensive activities programme that includes exercise, quiz sessions, newspaper readings, guest speakers and entertainers, and Happy Hour is a very popular event.

There is great emphasis on outings, undertaken in comfortable vans, with events ranging from concerts to garden visits.

Some residents prefer to undertake hobbies and interests privately, or on a one-to-one basis, and we are happy to accommodate them.
