Description
Cashmere Home is a long-standing community icon. Here, residents are supported to continue doing the things they love, while we provide the very best in clinical care. Residents enjoy the vibrant, warm and welcoming community where there is always something happening.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home are fully registered Eden Alternative homes – just a few in New Zealand.

That means we operate a truly elder-directed philosophy of care that ensures elders at Cashmere have companionship, variety and spontaneity, fun, meaningful activity and purpose in their lives. It ensures that elders are involved in decisions that relate to both their personal wellbeing and what happens at their home. Residents are supported to maintain their independence and routines, and to continue with hobbies, interests and passions, in a way that’s right for the individual.

OUR PEOPLE
Our staff are not only highly trained, they’re also friendly, caring and embrace our elder-directed philosophy of care.

At Cashmere nurses are on-duty 24-hours-a-day. Our doctor (GP) visits at least twice per week and we are in regular contact to ensure all clinical needs are met. Of course, if you have other health needs, such as physiotherapy, we can usually arrange for a health professional to visit Cashmere.

SERVICES
Enliven’s Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home offer rest home and hospital level care services, as well as short term respite, health recovery and rehabilitation care.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS
As an Enliven home we’re proud to be more than just ‘family friendly’. At Cashmere, your family is part of our family. After all, family, friends and the community play a big part in life here.

You’ll find there are no set visiting times; you can invite your grandchildren, family and friends to visit at any time. Plus we have a great toy box and games to keep the little ones entertained!

You may like to invite family or friends to join in the special events and social outings organised by Cashmere. And of course, family and friends are always welcome to join you for a meal.
