Recently constructed, our Holmdale and Youell wings have added beautiful new rooms increasing our rest home room capacity. Designed to deliver excellence of care, each room has its own ensuite, position-controlled hospital bed and pressure mattresses for optimum rest and comfort. Completing the room is bedroom furniture and a reclining armchair in which to enjoy a view of the garden or lawn accessed through a ranch slider door.
Residents are very welcome to bring their own single beds, and comfortable chair if they prefer, along with other personal items to make these light and spacious rooms into their own cosy space. Our trusted, industry-qualified staff know every resident by name and are led by an on-site Registered Nurse available 24 hours a day for peace of mind. Beside each bed is an easy to access call button ensuring that if required, assistance is never far away.
Residents can participate in as many or as few of our various activities as they like. There is no pressure to take part in activities if you do not wish to do so.
Our individual care plans include meal service with all dietary requirements overseen by a Dietician and Nutritionist, with seasonal menus carefully prepared by our experienced cooks, to take advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables to create nutritious home cooked meals and delicious baking. You can enjoy daily breakfast served in your room, with lunches and dinners in our dining room. Meal trays are served to residents wishing to eat in their own rooms. Morning and afternoon teas are delivered either to rooms or community lounges.
A full laundry service is included and we have regular visits from a qualified podiatrist and hairdresser who provide these services in our Personal Care Salon.
We welcome residents’ families to visit and socialise in any of our sunny main lounges or smaller, cosy lounges, which look out onto well-tended gardens. Flat pathways and outdoor seating make for easy access to our sunny Blenheim weather and park-like surroundings. We look forward to welcoming you to our Bethsaida family, where we treat you with kindness and respect.
