Under 65 yrs with Disability Yes We believe we provide a comfortable environment for people of all ages.
Day Care Yes Day Care via Focus. We understand that it may take a while for people to feel a part of our place and we will do our best to make that transition easier.
Palliative Care Contract No However if any of our residents require terminal/palliative care we will do our best to care for them over this time.
Whanau Room No As we are a small family home and generally have high occupancy this leaves us with limited space to meet this need. We do however have great links within the community and would do our best to accommodate whanau
Rooms (Single) Yes Our rooms are spacious, especially in the older part of the home. It could even be said that there is some wasted space! High ceilings in the new rooms continue the theme.
Ensuite Yes We have five rooms with ensuites. As this is a large family home everyone is in close proximity to the bathroom facilitites.
May Bring Own Furniture Yes We like people to bring their own furniture if possible, as we think this makes the room feel a ‘part of them’.
Alcohol Permitted Yes We care for our residents as family members and cater for individual preferences and some have a sherry early evening or a drink of their choice.
Pets In Residence Yes Our pets are great with the members of the household and they instinctively attach themselves to those who they know will like them. We have one cat and a small dog.
Negotiate To Bring Own Pet Yes We will do our best to accomodate individual needs.
Phone Access In Own Room Yes Cordless phones are available and residents may have a connection in their own room if they wish (own cost).
Resident can adjust heating in own room Yes
Residents Committee Yes We have monthly residents meetings.
Policy for management of challenging behaviour Yes This a requirement. We are happy to discuss our policy with you.
Confused Residents Yes Occasionally residents will become confused. Our caring staff are trained to manage this. However, we can not safely accommodate those who wander.
Lounges/seating areas Yes We have two lounges, both with spacious verandas. The veranda areas are a very popular place for residents to spend time catching up on the day's conversation and events.
Outings Yes Everyone has their preference with regard to outings, eg some like outings to clubs, other prefer a drive around sites of interest etc. We have found that a good way to manage this is to take ‘turns’, where those with shared interests go out together.
Smoking Permitted Yes In designated outdoor areas. Non smokers are also catered for.
Sprinklers Yes

Special Features
Special Features
We enjoy the informality and usual ‘comings and goings’ of a family home. A variety of things happen in the typical day, for example, on many days of the week friends with children drop in and spend time with us. Sometimes they join with us to play the games that our residents have taught them.

Individual interests and hobbies are encouraged. Kirsty leads by example. She is a painter and some times exhibits her work. By the time the exhibition comes around we have all seen and commented upon her work.

We all contribute to the household, some enjoy the garden and have particular gardening interests, others enjoy helping with domestic tasks: setting the table, putting dishes away, hanging out the washing, folding the clothes etc and one member enjoys bringing in the wood for the coalrange. We like everyone to feel useful and valued.

We think that it is understandable that new residents need time to settle into new surroundings as we all come from different backgrounds, life experiences, values and beliefs. We aim to create a sense of harmony in the home.

The original rest home of 8 beds expanded to 14 beds in late 2002. In 2005 we expanded to 22 beds with a second lounge area, dining area, and bathroom. Our office is located in this new area. The new additions are sympathetic in style with the original building.

In 2010 we renovated and built a new wing onto an existing wing. We added 4 more bedrooms, which all have their own toilets, and one respite room now giving us 27 rooms.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
Our residents have a variety of interests, which we encourage. Because we are small we are able to focus on individual preferences. Several residents are keen on doing crosswords and playing bingo; others enjoy the garden whilst others enjoy outings. A number are also keen readers. Many of the activities and interests revolve around the ‘comings and goings’ of the household

We have a car pool that we can call upon, so that when we go on outings it is often in the family car. If we are all going somewhere together, then we will call on the services of the local mobility van.

The style of the home makes for easy movement and integration of activities. The kitchen is very accessible and lies at the heart of the house with an adjacent lounge. It is common for our visitors and friends to be invited to sit at the kitchen table and be offered a ‘cuppa’ and some home baking.

The home is set in an established ‘old world’ garden. We grow some of our own produce including strawberries, kiwi fruit and vegetables.

Details re Meals The home cooked meals are lovely and residents always comment about this. Individual likes and dislikes are catered for. This means that eg if someone doesn’t like broccoli they won't be served it, or if they prefer a cooked breakfast then this is no trouble at all. We have our hot meal at midday. Home baking features at morning and afternoon tea times.
Staffing Details We have 2 Registered Nurses working a total of 5 days each week who give expert care and advice in key areas to ensure our Residents health needs are met. Our caregivers are loved and appreciated by everyone. Their caring manner is shown in a number of ways eg if a resident requires hospitalisation at any time, staff visit frequently. The staff do their best to keep the residents happy and feeling useful.
