In order to provide the best possible care, we like to find out about your likes and dislikes, hobbies and interests, family and friends. We want to get to know you personally and make sure you feel right at home. We also like to make sure to include your family when we talk with you about decisions regarding your care. That way, everyone is informed and your wishes are acknowledged.
We have regular activities and entertainment to keep you busy and we often go on outings, from trips to Masterton for picnics, to Wellington Airport to watch the planes take off. Of course, if your prefer something quieter like reading a book or watching a movie, then you're free to do that too; it’s up to you how you like to spend your day.
