Special Features
Special Features
We are a medium sized owner manager home with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We offer excellent meals with special diets catered for - you are welcome to visit at any time. We are just 1km from the beautiful grounds of the Homestead at the University of Canterbury with their wonderful rhododendron display and many lovely walks are available close by. We have duel purpose beds which enables either hospital or rest home care in rooms therefore allows seamless care i.e. if a rest home Resident's level of care changes to hospital care, they can remain in the same facility although they may have to change rooms. There is also the benifit of onsite Registered Nurse 24/7. We offer a varied and extensive Activities Programme Monday to Friday. Housie is played usually twice a week and there are two outings in our wheelchair bus which gives everyone an opportunity to go on an outing. An entertainer is booked once a week and we have a Happy Hour on the last Friday of the month when friends and family are welcome to join with Residents for a social gathering.
We have no set visiting hours.
