Additional Information
TopicDetails
Details re Meals All meals are prepared on site. An example of the way we demonstrate resident choice is the structure of our meal times. We open the dining room for breakfast at 7am and close it for open dining at 9am. You may therefore wander in at your convenience and help yourself or if you prefer breakfast may be served in your own room. Other meals are served at standard times but again the choice is yours as to whether you want to join other residents or have your meal in your room. We understand that some residents prefer to dine in their own room. Our staff are flexible enough to be able to spend time with you if you would like to socialise a little, or perhaps go walking with you to get some exercise.
Staffing Details We have Registered Nurse cover 24 hours a day.Our clinical Nurse Leader is highly experienced and leads our team of registered and enrolled Nurses. Our Healthcare assistants all have a relevant qualification.We have two trained Diversional Therapists who organise a program that caters for individual needs.
Associated Complexes Annie Brydon Complex In Hawera. Te Mahana Rest Home in Patea.
