Description
Wimbledon Villa's Hospital level care wing is called 'Rose Wing'.

Rose Wing is a small, intimate family-friendly hospital with just 18 bedrooms. It is a great place to reside and our staff are friendly & caring. They are all highly skilled and qualified and genuinely love what they do.
We are committed to meeting all the needs of our residents while maintaining their individuality and rights.

We look after our residents like they are family.

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.

We are very proud of our activities programme which caters for our wide range of residents needs and abilities.

All of our residents receive an individualised care programme with input from their family/whānau always sought.

We also offer day care and respite care for family who are needing a break.

***CLOSE TO PALMERSTON NORTH
We are only a mere 10 - 15 minute drive from Palmerston North. Our home is easily accessible to all residents and their families.

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

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.

Although our beds are dual use we currently have a vacancy for Hospital Level Care.

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.
