Rest Home Care

Rose Garden Rest Home is a rest home level care facility, can receive residents assessed under rest home level care by NASC (needs assessment service team in whangarei hospital). Our resident’s mobility ranges from those requiring all of their cares completed to those who are very mobile and able to complete most of their cares themselves.

 

Prospective residents, along with their relatives or carers and other support persons are welcome to view Rose Garden Rest Home prior to admission and meet with the Clinical Manager (by appointment) to discuss any specific needs and health-cares of the prospective resident and receive support to make the transition into a Rest Home as stress free as possible.

 

Rose Garden Rest Home level care is set “family style” living in beautiful rose gardens, It is bordered by native bush complete with birdlife. There are our separate lodges, each with their own dining room and lounge. Lodges 1, 2 and 3 are joined by corridors.

 

All the rooms are all single with heaters, and they are newly renovated and near to toilets and bathrooms which are new too. All the rooms have call bells, wardrobes, bedside lighting and pleasant furniture. Residents are encouraged to personalize their rooms to bring with them favourite furniture, pictures and photographs, it helps them the settle in the facility easier and quicker. We also encourage residents to socialise and offer a range of activities for this to occur throughout the facility. 

 

It is to provide safe and therapeutic care for our residents. We will do this in a therapeutic environment which is spacious and has attractive wide views including into peaceful native bush. Each resident has a large bedroom so they are able to bring with them personal belongings/ furniture so assisting them to create their “new home.”

 

By providing indoor and outdoor areas that are safe the resident may wander at will whilst still being under close supervision of supportive staff.

Cameras and movement sensor in situation assist staff to maintain supervision without intruding in the residents activities unnecessarily whilst minimising the risks associated with their ‘confused’ states.

 

Family/whanua are welcome, accepted and respected for the role they play in the life of the resident.

 

All staff hold qualifications in the care of the person suffering from dementia or are in the process of undertaking such qualifications. They receive ongoing education with the emphasis being on supporting the resident to retain skills and as much independence as possible for as long as possible, and to know how to minimise/manage situations which may cause the resident/s to become unsettled or agitated.

 

Admissions are from hospital, other care facilities or the community. Visitors are welcomed at any time through the day or evening.
