Rest Home Care: Reevedon Home

Details
Enliven’s Reevedon Home is warm, welcoming and homely, from the moment you walk through the door. Residents enjoy the vibrant and friendly atmosphere – there is always something going on or visitors calling in on the residents of Reevedon Home. Situated in Salisbury Street, close to Levin’s main shopping centre, Reevedon Home is a community icon and residents make the most of the central location.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
Reevedon Home, like all Enliven Central homes, embraced an elder directed model of care called the Eden Alternative.

This means we work to ensure the elders of Reevedon Home 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.

Here, 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.

SERVICES
Enliven’s Reevedon Home offers rest home care as well as short term respite, health recovery care and an engaging day programme. Our sister site in Levin, Levin Home for War Veterans, is able to offer dementia care and hospital level services. This means they have nurses on-duty 24-hours-a-day.

The doctor visits Reevedon Home regularly, and we are in regular contact to ensure all clinical needs are met.

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

At Reevedon, 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 Reevedon Home. And of course, family and friends are always welcome to join you for a meal.
