Description
Millvale Lodge Lindale is a purpose-built aged care facility in a country environment.

Millvale Lodge Lindale is divided into 3 small homes. Each home is completely self-contained, so that the residents experience a small cosy home with a calm supportive atmosphere. Residents are encouraged to take part in the running of their home if they wish, as continuing with their accustomed roles has been found to assist people in maintaining a sense of purpose and value.

Millvale Lodge Lindale is a unique place for people to come: a place where there is some freedom, space to maintain fitness, see the stars and the trees, interact with animals and create a sense of home.

The design maximises indoor-outdoor flow, with residents free to wander safely through the park-like surroundings without feeling confined. There are farm animals in the neighbouring paddocks, fruit trees, and a vegetable garden which residents are encouraged to help tend. The emphasis is on taking part in the normal activities of everyday life.

A sheltered picnic spot, accessed by a wheelchair-accessible pathway, will provide a safe destination for afternoon tea, or a walk with a visiting family dog.

The nature of the environment is soothing, peaceful and enjoyable for residents and their visitors.

At Millvale Lodge, the country environment and large grounds extend the opportunities open to us to give each person their greatest chance of being physically healthy and emotionally the best they can be.

Millvale Lodge provides general rest home care, dementia rest home care and general hospital (continuing) care. Each of the 3 small homes comprises private bedrooms (some with en suite), together with our hallmark homely lounge, dining area and kitchenette.



OUR VISION:

"At Millvale Lodge Lindale we create a loving, warm and homely atmosphere where each person is supported to experience each moment richly"

OUR VALUES:

We strive to achieve this vision by promoting ...

"the uniqueness of each person
the immense value of each person
and working with openness,honesty and integrity"

In these ways, we enrich each person, the community and the world.
Dementia Care New Zealand is one of New Zealand’s highly regarded aged care providers.
We provide a full range of residential care including general rest home care, dementia rest home care, general hospital level care, and dementia hospital level care. At many of our facilities, a full continuum of care is available.
We specialize in person-centred care for people who live with dementia. This is the work we have passionately chosen to do.
We care for people in small, cosy homes with a loving, warm and homely atmosphere where each person is supported to experience each moment richly. Our small homes concept means that people with dementia experience life in a less clinical and more normalised, familiar way. Small homes that inter connect, also bring a sense of ‘community’ for a person with dementia.





OUR PHILOSOPHY:

1. Connecting with each person we care for as we would a very best friend means that people feel loved and important. A best friend accepts you as you are, believes in you, forgives your mistakes, really listens to you, jokes with you and loves to hear you laugh.

2. Families/whanau become part of the community we have. They are involved in their loved one’s care. They are encouraged to share their in-depth and intimate knowledge of their loved one. There is much honesty and openness. This builds trusting relationships between us all. We know family, and family know us.

3. A home that provides people with stability. Things seem familiar – a private bedroom with things in it from home, sunny spots to sit in, a garden.

4. Each staff person is someone with ability and with a potential for growth. There is much opportunity for every staff member. Each staff member can have a positive impact on residents, their family and their team.

5. Ensuring that people can continue with their old roles, if they wish, like collecting the mail, folding the washing, sweeping the floor means that they have a purpose in life. They can be involved in the running of their home.

6. As we work in these ways, people are more contented and participate in life more fully. They have their greatest chance at being physically healthy and emotionally the best they can be.


We are extremely pleased to now be able to offer 24 hour Registered Nurse coverage to all of our people at Millvale Lodge Lindale.

Our staff are the heart and soul of the person-centred care we provide at our facilities, and we are currently in the process of building an outstanding staff team for Millvale Lodge.

We are currently advertising for caregiving and registered nursing staff. However, at the core of our team will be existing staff members who understand our organization and philosophy of care, and connect powerfully with our vision and values.

These key staff members have expressed an interest in moving across to Millvale Lodge to instil these vital values into the new members of our team.

The new staff will also undergo on-the-job training at our established facilities before starting work at Millvale Lodge Lindale.



We are guided by our vision and values and love the work we have chosen to do.
