Comfortable living & Compassionate care
Our care home in Kaeo provides residential and nursing care on a short-stay (respite), rehabilitation or permanent basis.
We get to know your loved one, learning about their unique experiences, interests and memories and getting a sense of what makes them special.
We use these insights to create personalised care and lifestyle plans that enable a fulfilling life with as much independence as possible.
Home away from home
All residents can bring their own furniture and possessions, if they wish to. Our beautiful garden provides a peaceful haven for residents to enjoy, complemented by many organised activities indoors and out.
Visitors are welcome at all times of the day thanks to our open door visiting policy. Good food is important. We pride ourselves on serving meals that are both nutritious and delicious, all prepared by our experienced chef and her team.
Lifestyle & wellbeing
At Kauri Lodge we not only look after your health, we also want your stay with us to be as enjoyable as possible.
We therefore offer a wide range of both internal and external activities. Our activity team helps clients to maximise their potential and, if they desire, to build relationships with friends both old and new.
The physical abilities of our residents can vary dramatically. We therefore have our own specialist Physio equipment for those with restricted movement or disabilities. Our in-house physiotherapist visits every Thursday and our Physio Assistant is here 3 days per week to support our Whanau.
Something as simple as having one’s hair cared for and looking our best can dramatically affect how we feel about ourselves. It’s for this reason that we have experienced visiting hairdressers.
A hairdresser is present every 6 weeks. Bookings are made via the diversional therapist. The cost is not included as part of the usual charges and must be paid directly to the hairdresser at the time of service.
A Podiatrist visits 6-weekly or more regularly if required. The cost for this service is charged yearly in advance for four treatments per year. More treatments can be arranged as required by the individual.
All personal laundry is done on site. We prefer not to handle precious woollens. All linen is provided however families are welcome to provide their own. All personal items must be clearly labelled with the residents name.
Our meals are nutritious and freshly prepared on site. All dietary preferences and specialized diets are catered for– and our chef-led meals will support you with a nutritional, well-balanced diet.
