With views of the western hills, Whangārei Park Village has a peaceful outlook over its own ‘village green’ fringed with beautiful mature trees which are visited by native birds.
Rest Home is staffed with professional registered nurses 24 hours a day, and caregivers who are trained to meet individual, special needs. Whangārei Park Village's own doctor visits regularly. There are several lounges which visitors and residents can use.
Visitors are welcome, and residents are encouraged to make the rooms their own, with personal furniture, pictures, mementos and television sets.
Also on-site we offer Hospital Care, Dementia Care as well as Villas for independent living.
Our aim is to provide a warm and friendly environment. We are staffed with caregivers and other professional staff trained to meet the particular needs of those in their care. Although our doctor visits regularly, some families may prefer to continue to have their own GP.
We want all our residents to have an enjoyable time. Our manager is happy to meet with family members, and respond to any questions or concerns you may have. It is appreciated if you take the time to make an appointment - telephone 438 1099 ext 134.
MAKING PEOPLE FEEL AT HOME
There is open visiting at home in the park and family and friends are always very welcome. To help residents to feel at home, please feel encouraged to bring personal things such as pictures, photographs, a favourite comfy chair and treasured mementos.
There are many special areas including several lounges. Our restful garden and the park greens give a real country feel to our dementia unit and village as a whole.
