Description
For those who need a little more assistance with daily living, HBH Senior Living offers a dedicated, 32-bed rest home. Meals, activities and personal care are provided and you can rest assured that a highly trained nurse is in charge at all times.

CARE PHILOSOPHY
Living life to the full, as independently as possible, with support and medical care at hand 24/7.

LIVING SPACE
Rooms are larger than most (17 metres square with a full ensuite), so there is plenty of space to bring the things you treasure. All rooms have a built-in wardrobe, vanity and storage and are pre-wired for Sky, phone and Internet. And best of all, every room opens onto a deck or patio.
There are also three communal lounges (with Wifi available), as well as a large dining room and activities space.

FEATURES OF OUR CARE
> Managed by the Director of Nursing, with day-to-day management by an enrolled nurse.
> Support with personal care (showering and dressing assistance) and supervision of medical conditions.
> Three GPs who undertake regular check-ups every three months or as medically required.
> Regular family meetings with senior staff to review care.
> Occupational therapist, physiotherapist and podiatrist available.
> Activities programme and support for residents to organise their own activities and hobbies.
> Laundry is taken care of, although we have a resident laundry and drying room available if you want to do any of your own laundry or special items.
> All meals and snacks provided fresh from own onsite kitchen, including an optional buffet breakfast so residents can get up when they wish.
> Menus are supervised by a dietician.

INDUSTRY ENDORSEMENTS
Our rest home has been awarded four years certification (the highest level of certification available) from the Ministry of Health. HBH Senior Living is also in the process of becoming an Eden Alternative facility (having achieved eight of the ten Eden Principles).

WELLBEING
We offer chaplaincy and weekly church services and have an onsite shop, library trolley, weekly Happy Hour and hairdresser, as well as a range of daily activities, regular social functions and celebrations. For those with green fingers, a raised garden is available and animal lovers can enjoy our resident pets. Residents may also be able to bring their own pet.

COMMUNITY
A mini bus is available to take you on organised outings. Volunteers help with a range of activities as well as friendship and companionship, and HBH Senior Living is a member of the Eden Alternative, a philosophy of care based on helping older people to have a life of purpose, meaning and variety.

"Yesterday we celebrated Mum's 90th. She had a wonderful day with friends and family. We have much to thank the wonderful staff at your rest home for. I have been into many rest homes over the years; there is nowhere I have seen that is up to the standard of care that my mum receives from your amazing staff."
Thanks again, Mary

All of the staff do such a great job and we appreciate it very much."

"Everybody is so friendly and we as a family feel very comfortable to discuss any worries we may have - we always feel very welcome."
