Spirituality

The spiritual care of our residents and staff is an essential component of the Foundation’s model of care, The Selwyn Way and contributes to an individual’s overall health and wellbeing.

The Selwyn Way

The Selwyn Way is our unique and holistic approach to the care and wellbeing of all who connect with the Foundation and includes the spiritual and religious dimension of wellbeing, underpinned by our Christian faith.  Our services and ethics embody these principles, respecting the variety inherent in Tikanga Maori, Tikanga Pakeha and Tikanga Pacifica, and embracing the diversity of cultures, values and spirituality that are present within contemporary Aotearoa New Zealand.

The Foundation provides chaplains at every village location, who are on call 24 hours a day for all residents as needed. The chaplains are ordained ministers of the Anglican church and their ministry and services offer great comfort and support to our village communities.
