Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.
To provide a quality environment in which each senior person in our care feels secure, retains their independence and is supported by staff committed to their well-being.
Bethsaida Retirement Village offers a secure home in a park like atmosphere, covering two hectares of landscaped grounds. Along with the Villa’s for Independent Living, we also have 31 Rest Home rooms and 12 Hospital Level rooms providing 24 hour care.
Our residents are encouraged to participate in an extensive activities and entertainment programme organised by an Activities Officer.
Our staff are committed to a Quality Assurance Programme and the emphasis is on providing a caring, friendly atmosphere, while at the same time providing stimulation and security for our residents.
Our Villa Residents are able to have meals in the Rest Home dining room, by arrangement.
The Villas are architecturally designed for the elderly.
History – In 1973 a group of prominent Blenheim citizens set up the Bethsaida Trust, the purpose of which was to establish a Home for the care of the frail and dependent elderly, of either sex, without discrimination as to race, religion or political belief.
This idea has expanded into the complex which is now known as the Bethsaida Retirement Village on 2 hectares of landscaped, park like surroundings.
NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.
In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
