Ultimate Care Maupuia - Home Help and Personal Care/Assistance (Day Care)

1 day ago - Wellington 6022

 

Monday 10 July 2017 -Balloon Noodle Antics’  

 

There are some things we have found at UCG Maupuia that transcend age groups that’s have fun no matter what age you are. We’ve been having resistance from our residents, not wishing to participate in our exercise classes, most residents don’t like to exercise. Today we have managed to change that by introducing ‘Balloon Noodle Antics’.  This has become such a popular game we now play it weekly

 

This game can be played in so many different settings, with many different ability levels, and it is a good exercise. It can be easily graded to work on multiple skills, such as standing and sitting balance, improved respiratory health, upper extremity strength with overhead reaching and hand eye coordination.

 

Our residents normally sit in a circle in the lounge, with their different coloured noodles (they picked their colours).  We then add the 3 balloons and we are off.  We started off with a base core of residents, with the music of Tina Turner ‘Simple the Best’ playing in the back ground.  We found that we double in the number of residents participating as they come out to investigate what was going on.  It was great to see how completive the residents are, the smiles and laugher as they missed or hit the balloons and how they watched and congratulated other residents when they managed to hit the balloons. We run it now on the days that we have our fantastic fun loving day program group.  

 

Balloon Noodle Antics only requires the large 60cm balloons, these are easy to hit, come in bright colours and they bounce, so there are airborne longer.  We have used pool noodles in bright colours cut in half for each team member.  

 

We strive to reawaken the fun loving side of our residents



Monday 12 June 2017

Our residents at Ultimate Care Maupuia had a couple of special guests join them on Monday morning to visit the facility and they also help with the group activity, the weekly crossword puzzle.  Annette King, retiring Member of Parliament, chose to stop by the facility who she has visited a number of times throughout her career.  She was joined for the visit by Paul Eagle, Deputy Mayor of Wellington.  They not only help solve the crossword puzzle but gave out the prizes to with winners.  Annette also gave a short but very funny speech about her time in Parliament and introduce her successor Paul Eagle.

 

April 2017

On our recent outing we took Maupuia resident and our Day-care group to the Hall of Memories.  This is at the base of the National War Memorial Carillon tower, which serves as the commemorative chapel of the National War Memorial

Interior and exterior walls

The interior walls were built in stone from the Mount Somers district near Ashburton. The exterior is clad with concrete slabs cast to resemble blocks of Putaruru stone. Soaring columns give a commanding impression of height and beauty.

Stained-glass windows

The stained-glass windows, which create an attractive effect of colour and light, were designed by Pierre Fourmaintraux, an accomplished exponent of unpainted dalle de verre (thick chunks of glass faceted roughly by hammer and set in concrete). They were made by Whitefriars Glass, one of Britain’s oldest window makers.

Recesses

Six recesses, or mini-chapels, flank each side of the hall. Each has its own dedicated plaque of remembrance to armed services in which New Zealanders served. The flags of each service hang immediately above.

Also within the recesses are four mounted wall plaques commemorating the conflicts in South Africa, Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam.

The recess commemorating the Second World War Expeditionary Force contains a three-panelled Māori carving known as Tāhiwi. This was presented by Gallipoli veterans in honour of the Māori Pioneer Battalion.

The sanctuary

The focal point of the hall, sculptor Lyndon Smith's statue Mother and Children, stands within the sanctuary. The statue depicts a wartime family giving one another comfort and hope in the absence of loved ones overseas.

The coats of arms of the nine New Zealand provinces flank the walls above the books. The Lamp of the Brotherhood, dedicated to preserving remembrance and unity, is mounted on the back wall. Carved in stone above the sanctuary are doves of peace and verses from Psalm 139 in the Bible. Two large columns flank the steps to the sanctuary, each bearing engravings of members of the Commonwealth who fought in the two world wars, their coats of arms linked by stylised branches to the Tree of the Commonwealth.

Word's from Laurence Binyon's poem‘ For the Fallen’ are set within bronze on the rear wall of the sanctuary.

Stuart Clarke is a multi-talented New Zealand based singer songwriter who has been part of the NZ scene for more than a decade. 

His professionalism coupled with his consistent live performances make him one of the most sought after musicians in the country. 

Being blessed with a wonderfully rich bass-baritone voice, often said to be comparable to the late great Johnny Cash, he is an undeniable talent in the music scene. Stuart regularly performs at live music venues and for Weddings and Corporate functions in his home town of Wellington and also in other cities such as Auckland and Queenstown.

We had a very special concert at Maupuia with a very proud father in the audience.  His singing bought the residence alive with his amazing baritone voice.

Daycare attendees and residents visited the Mount Victoria Look today. Rising 196m above the city, this has been on our must-do list for a while but this trip is defiantly weather dependent. From the lookout we were rewarded with stunning panoramic views of Wellington city and harbor, and beyond.

From the top, we enjoyed the views of Tinakori Hill, the Hutt Valley and Eastern Harbour Bays, Matiu/Somes Island and the Miramar Peninsula. Beyond are Baring and Pencarrow Heads and further to the right, Wellington’s Southern suburbs and Mt Mathews, Wellington’s highest point to the East.

With little wind we, settled in on the hillside and relax while watching ferries and cruise ships sail into the harbour and planes fly in and out of the airport.

Great morning was had by all.

HOSPITAL CARE FOR LEIGHTON HOUSE

 

We are writing to advise you about an important extension to the service we provide at Leighton House.

 

We have recently undertaken a special audit to enable us to provide hospital care at Leighton House This will be in addition to the existing rest home care, and will represent a significant extension of  the service we currently provide to our residents.

 

Hospital care will be provided in the East Wing. This bright and sunny area of our home has its own lounge with ample decking and views of the gardens. The bedrooms are sunny and spacious. We will soon be installing a homely kitchenette which will create a very special little self-contained home for just 11 people. It will be a very warm, cosy, comfortable place to be. The unique environment will be welcoming and tranquil, a home away from home for those frail people requiring this specialised care.

 

A registered nurse will be on duty 24 hours a day seven days a week.

 

The addition of hospital care to our services at Leighton means that when our residents become more frail they will be able to stay on at Leighton instead of needing to transfer elsewhere.  It is important that residents can stay here in the place that is their home, with the people who know them well and know just how to care for them.  It brings a measure of comfort to residents and their families and friends knowing that they will not have to move.

 

Hospital care will be delivered with the same loving care and uncompromising standards Leighton House is known for. The service will be available from 3rd February onwards.

 

We will be delighted to answer any questions you may have regarding this new service.

 

Yours sincerely

New era for Leighton House

Dementia Care NZ has purchased Leighton House and takes over the facility on 11 July 2013.

The group of companies is co-owned and run by business partners Alison Hume and Jim Haines. 

Their expertise is in the redevelopment of aged care facilities, specialising in the care of elderly people.

They are currently successfully running seven facilities, two in Christchurch, one in Blenheim, one in Nelson, one in Waikanae, one in Levin and one in Wellington. They are highly experienced in all aspects of the development and management of a successful aged care facility.

The key to the success of the organisation is its total focus on providing best care for residents. "Our staff are a vital element in the successful provision of the person-centred care we provide," said Alison Hume. " It is essential to have caregiving and nursing staff with appropriate qualification and experience, and above all, with the 'knack' of working positively with the elderly, vulnerable and frail. Choosing the very best staff is key to the successful running of our homes."

Alison Hume and Jim Haines are working closely with the outgoing management of Leighton House to ensure a successful handover. "We have experience in ensuring that transitions of this nature occur smoothly and with the least possible stress. We are known for our open communication, transparency and highly person-centred approach to care, and for our strong focus on providing love and support to residents and their families at every stage of the residential care journey," says Alison Hume.

"This is the work we have chosen to do. In each of our homes we create a loving, warm and homely atmosphere where each person is supported to experience each moment richly.  Each person has their greatest chance of being physically healthy and emotionally the best they can be."

"Above all, openness, honesty and integrity are central to our philosophy of care.

New era for Leighton House

Dementia Care NZ has purchased Leighton House and takes over the facility on 11 July 2013.

The group of companies is co-owned and run by business partners Alison Hume and Jim Haines. 

Their expertise is in the redevelopment of aged care facilities, specialising in the care of elderly people.

They are currently successfully running seven facilities, two in Christchurch, one in Blenheim, one in Nelson, one in Waikanae, one in Levin and one in Wellington. They are highly experienced in all aspects of the development and management of a successful aged care facility.

The key to the success of the organisation is its total focus on providing best care for residents. "Our staff are a vital element in the successful provision of the person-centred care we provide," said Alison Hume. " It is essential to have caregiving and nursing staff with appropriate qualification and experience, and above all, with the 'knack' of working positively with the elderly, vulnerable and frail. Choosing the very best staff is key to the successful running of our homes."

Alison Hume and Jim Haines are working closely with the outgoing management of Leighton House to ensure a successful handover. "We have experience in ensuring that transitions of this nature occur smoothly and with the least possible stress. We are known for our open communication, transparency and highly person-centred approach to care, and for our strong focus on providing love and support to residents and their families at every stage of the residential care journey," says Alison Hume.

"This is the work we have chosen to do. In each of our homes we create a loving, warm and homely atmosphere where each person is supported to experience each moment richly.  Each person has their greatest chance of being physically healthy and emotionally the best they can be."

"Above all, openness, honesty and integrity are central to our philosophy of care.

CAPACITY

 

As lawyers, we are required to meet with our clients and take their instructions in order to help them complete the particular legal task(s) they are planning.  Sometimes when we do this, we need to take a little extra time to consider our client’s legal or mental capacity to make decisions.

Legal capacity is a client’s capacity to make a decision in relation to legal rights and obligations.  Decision making requires that a client:

  • understands the decision they are having to make
  • can discuss with us the possible options available to them in a way that shows they appreciate the risk and or benefit of that decision
  • understands the impact that a decision, or the lack of a decision, may have on them or their loved ones
  • is able to articulate and discuss all of these issues with us.

It is important to note that the level of capacity required isn’t the same in every situation.  For example, to make a Will the test[1] is whether the client knows they are making a Will and the effect of doing so, whether they understand the extent of the assets they are dealing with and finally, whether they comprehend the moral claims which they ought to give effect to.

However, when giving instructions to complete Enduring Powers of Attorney the test[2] is whether the client understands the consequences of granting a power of attorney and the nature and effect of the power they are giving.  This is the test even in a situation where the client is no longer capable of managing their own affairs[3].

Having these discussions with our clients is difficult.  It can be very confronting.  In a worst case scenario, our clients can be very offended by us questioning their capacity.  This is not our intention.  Our sole purpose in making the enquiry is to ensure that whatever legal outcome our clients have set out to achieve has the best possible opportunity of success.

We are aware however that if there is a likelihood that our client’s decision might be challenged, one of the first questions that is often raised is whether our client had the capacity required to make the decision in the first place.

The best way of mitigating this risk, in situations where capacity is not obvious, may be for the client to undertake a capacity assessment prior to completing their legal work.  It is best that any assessment be scheduled as close as possible to the appointment to complete the legal work so that there cannot be a suggestion of deterioration in between. 

Where capacity may be an issue, with our client’s permission, we can write to our client’s doctor to explain to them the background of the situation, the legal test that is at issue and to request a detailed report regarding our client’s capacity to make the decision they are contemplating.

The good news is that statistics show that most of us will not lose legal capacity in our senior years. However, for the reasons discussed above, if you have concerns about your capacity or the capacity of a loved one who is about to make significant decisions, it is critical that you obtain advice from a team well versed in dealing with these matters. At Harmans we have a specialist seniors team to help you with any queries you may have. Give Fleur McDonald a call on 352-2293 to arrange an appointment to discuss your situation.
