Our quaint care home is located in the heart of Christchurch's leafy suburb of Bishopdale. An easy walk from the Bishopdale Mall, one of the local places we regularly like to visit on our outings.
Bethesda Care Home has comfortable shared lounges - a great place to socialise with other residents or your family, but we also have some rooms which are large enough to include a sofa and coffee table (from home) for private relaxation.
Features of Bethesda:
• Friendly to make you feel at home.
• 24 hour assistance.
• Outdoor spaces to enjoy while you relax.
• Space for some quiet time.
• Communal dining room.
We want you to feel at home here, so it’s up to you how you spend your day. We have a wide range of activities to choose from, such as coffee club, housie and art classes. Some of our favourites include having barbeque lunches or feeding the ducks. We also have a happy hour every Friday, and visits from local entertainers ranging from Elvis Presley impersonators to Barbershop quartets. Activities are happening seven days a week. You can get involved as much or as little as you like - it’s up to you how your spend your day. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.
