Rest Home Dementia Care | Respite Care | Hospital Dementia Care

We welcome new residents and enjoy getting to know them.

People are encouraged to continue with familiar roles and remain involved in the running of their home.

Our residents enjoy a wide range of activities, outings and community involvement.

Family become part of the community we have and we encourage their continuing involvement in their loved ones' lives.

We have several programmes available for family support.

 

May 13th 2020 - Warmest greetings, Families and Friends, and welcome to Alert Level 2!

 

First and foremost, we would like to thank each and every one of you for the valuable part you have played in helping to keep our home safe over the past few months. We know it has meant a huge sacrifice of your precious time with your loved one. Thank you for this. It is appreciated and so much valued.
We are now delighted to let you know that we will be welcoming you back to our home from Thursday 14th May. Once again we ask for your understanding and support in observing the following visiting guidelines, as recommended by the Ministry of Health:

 

• Please ring us beforehand if you would like to visit: (03) 385 1286
• Initial screening needs to be completed by our Clinical Manager, available Monday-Friday 8.30-4.30. Please be aware of the need for pre-planning if you intend to visit over the weekend
• Visiting hours will be 9.30-11.30 a.m. daily
• To accommodate all loved ones wishing to visit, we ask you to restrict visits to 30 minutes
• Only one visitor per resident will be allowed at a time, and unfortunately it will not be possible for children to visit at the moment
• In addition to the above, all visitors will be screened by our clinical team on each visit. Please be patient with this important process
• We remind you that after that long-awaited hug the Ministry recommends that we maintain a physical distance of 2 metres from all people not in our immediate ‘home bubble’
• If anyone in your immediate home bubble is feeling even slightly unwell, please refrain from visiting until you are all at least 48 hours symptom-free
• Please only visit and interact with your own loved one, and keep a social distance of 2 metres from others at all times. Our staff will be available to assist with this if needed.
• All visitors will be asked to:
a. wear a mask (which we will provide), in line with Ministry guidelines
b. perform hand hygiene
• We ask that you refrain from taking your loved one out into the wider community for the new few weeks.

Welcome home. It will be lovely to see you again and see the smiles and happiness that greet your arrival.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING COVID-19 AND VISITATION 21/03/20

 

We have decided to temporarily close our home over the weekend to visitors as we work towards implementing the latest advice from the Ministry of Health as of 21st March 2020. We are reviewing our processes to ensure they meet the new recommendations from the Ministry. We will advise you of the new process for visiting our home on Monday, 23rd March 2020.

 

We acknowledge the importance of visits for our residents and their loved ones. Closing our doors is not a step we take lightly. However, preventing the spread of COVID-19 has to take priority.
