Hospital dementia care to be offered at Avonlea
Following the successful introduction of Hospital care in April last year, we are excited to announce that we will soon add Dementia Hospital care to the services we provide at Avonlea.
This new dementia hospital will meet the needs of residents whose dementia progresses to the stage where they are reassessed as needing a higher, more specialised level of care. Now these residents will be able to remain at Avonlea, in surroundings which are familiar, and cared for by people who know them well and understand them. We believe this brings much comfort to families also.
Our organization has considerable existing expertise in hospital dementia care, which we provide at six of our eight facilities country-wide. We have an established reputation for experience and excellence in this level of care.
A small audit focusing on the MOH requirements for dementia hospital care will take place before opening.
We expect that the building work will be completed within six weeks, and hope to open in mid-March.
We are proud and excited that at Avonlea we will soon offer a complete continuum of dementia care, and that our residents will no longer need to move on to other facilities as their care needs change.
For further information, enquiries or bookings, please call Donya Nee on 0272776882 or Kirsty Hart on 03 338 0202 x 1.
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.
