At Cornwall Park we provide a safe and secure environment which has a homely comfortable feel that enables us to give individualised specialist care to our residents.
We provide person centered care putting our residents, their likes and preferences, at the centre of everything we do. We encourage our residents to remain socially active and run a full daily activity programme, focusing on residents abilities, interests and hobbies. We encourage relatives to be involved in activities and also residents ongoing care with open visiting and regular care reviews. Regular relatives forums are run to update relatives on whats going on in the facility and to ensure their comments are taken on board.
Cornwall Park is set in the heart of Epsom and just 10 minutes from Auckland City Centre, Greenlane and Newmarket. We provide short and long-term specialist hospital level care.
Residents enjoy watching the comings and goings from the sunny balcony off the main lounge. There are also safe outdoor areas with attractive, well-maintained gardens.
Cornwall Park Hospital is part of the Bupa group of rest homes, hospitals, retirement villages and personal medical alarms. We are a private company, and because we have no shareholders, we can invest what we earn to make improvements that help us provide better care.
As part of the global Bupa group, we are able to provide superior clinical support, while focusing on helping each of our residents get the most out of each day. Bupa is one of New Zealand’s leading aged care providers.
