Testimonials

I have no hesitation in writing my impressions of having my partner in care at Tasman Rest Home.

Prior to his being a full time resident ten months ago, he had spent time in several other facilities in the Nelson/Richmond region, having respite care. This enabled us to make a decision on which we felt would give him the best care. I had no hesitation in choosing Tasman, & have no regrets.

The caliber  of nurturing & care is excellent. I visit regularly and have observed this culture. The effort made to encourage the special needs of residents impresses me, even allowing my partners beloved dog to visit.

As his condition has deteriorated there have been regular updates and inclusion with all decisions made. I am made to feel welcome at all times, and they have coped with the recent shut down restrictions with understanding of the residents needs as well as friends and families. It has not been easy for those who did not understand  why they were separated from loved ones. Tasman Rest Home were very tolerant and understanding of this need. Physical care is also excellent, and the hygiene standards very thorough

It gives me great pleasure to say how impressed I am with the care and attention given at Tasman Rest Home.

Outstanding Care Provided for my Mum

The Positives : The wonderful staff at Tasman provided outstanding care for my mum throughout her stay. They were, without exception, calm, kind and warm-hearted toward her at all times. That she was able to smile and laugh with us right up to her last days is a tribute to the ‘best friends’ and ‘small homes’ concept being implemented by DementiaCare NZ. We will always remain grateful that we chose Tasman to care for her.

The Negatives : Nothing.

To anyone viewing this facility we encourage you to focus on the calm atmosphere and attitude of the caring staff. So while the rooms and lounges are bright and cheery they don’t have the latest decor. Funds are obviously spent on providing the very best in personal care for the residents as we found. We never regretted for even one minute our decision to settle Mum here.

To all the wonderful staff at Tasman.

We just wanted you all to know how much our family appreciated the outstanding care you gave my mum throughout her stay with you. You were, without exception, calm, kind and warm-hearted toward her at all times. That she was able to smile and laugh with us right up to her last days is a tribute to all of you and to the ‘best friends’ and ‘small homes’ concept being implemented by DementiaCare NZ. We will always remain grateful that we chose Tasman to care for Mum after she could no longer stay at home

We extend to you all our warmest regards and grateful thanks

Hi Claire,

‘We have found Tasman Rest Home and dementia Care to be the best place for our Mum. The Carers and Nurses take great care to make sure that Mum gets what she needs. It’s never easy losing your Mum to dementia, but we are happy in the knowledge that she is being well cared for an Tasman. Any time we have concerns, we voice them and they listen, take it on board and try their hardest to make sure Mum is happy and comfortable. They take time to get to know Mum and what her signs and signals mean and do their best to understand what she wants. No ‘home’ is ever going to be perfect at this time of life, but all the Carers, Nurses and other staff at Tasman really do their very best to make Mum feel at home. They truly do care about Mum.’ 

Kath Bee.

To all the staff at Tasman Rest Home.

We would like to say a big thank you for the lovely happy friendly care given to our Father Allen Mills.

It was so nice walking into the building, residents and staff alike always greeted us with smiles and hello’s.

The sensor mat by his bed was always being set off by us accidently no matter how hard we tried not to and a staff member would come in with a beaming smile and switch it off.

Nothing seemed to be a bother.

We always felt like we belonged to a big family, this made things so much easier for us to cope with Dad having to be in an environment he didn’t want to be and his health deteriorating.

The banter between you and Dad was a joy to see, Dad loved to give cheek to someone and it was nice to see you responding back. 

The care and friendliness not only extended to Dad, as an extended family always being there, we also were looked after.

The endless cups of tea and coffee, and a meal if we happened to be there at that time was so generous. Along with the one happy hour we happened to coincide with, was nice it was shared with everybody not just the residents. I know my grandchildren loved it, Toby still talks about his lemonade and chippies with Great Granddad.

We will be recommending you to everyone we talk to, our choice of care for Dad was just the best in our eyes, thank you so much.

Kindest Regards

Christine Griffith and Gene.

My Husband, Eric, has been a resident of Tasman Rest Home and Dementia Care in Stoke, Nelson since January 17th this year and I can’t speak too highly about the wonderful care he is receiving.

All the staff, from the Managers, The Registered Nurses, the Diversional Therapists and the Carers are all very competent and all so cheerful and most welcoming.

A support group meeting is held once a month for the families of the residents, which I find most helpful.

I am very happy to have Eric being cared for by these wonderful people and would thoroughly recommend Tasman Rest Home and Dementia Care.
