Description
Alpine View's forty-seven bed care facility is located just 2km away from Burwood Hospital - Christchurch's main hospital for the elderly. On the 4th September, 2012, the NZ Government announced that: “Burwood Hospital will be NZ’s largest ever public health construction project, costing over $500 million.”​​

Set in three and a half acres of land, the care facility has lovely landscaped gardens providing a wonderful environment for residents.

Each bedroom has its own ensuite unit with shower and toilet, telephone jackpoint, LCD TV and radiant ceiling heater (with thermostatic control). An under-floor heating system provides stable and comfortable warmth throughout the facility. Each bedroom and ensuite is equipped with a nurse-call system for immediate communication.

Our dedicated care facility has been structured so that personalised care is continually on hand. Our individual care plans are developed in consultation with the resident, family and whanau... together with our specialised staff and consultants. It is a collaborative approach.
