The Selwyn Way

The Selwyn Way is our approach to the care and wellbeing of all who connect with us.

Our services and ethics embody these principles, so whether you live at home in your community, or in one of our independent living, residential or dementia care facilities, or work for us, you will find the same love and care, underpinned by our Christian faith.

Our ethos is ‘to care for older people, you have to care about them’, me mātua aroha ki te tangata, hei manaaki tika i a rātou and this approach puts the individual at the centre of everything we do. To guide us in the practical realisation of this (in terms of how we provide services), we believe that the wellbeing of any person we connect with, is defined by the following five domains:

Spirituality (Taha Wairua)

A dimension that brings meaning to life.

Growth (Te Haere Whakamua)

Continuing to learn and flourish as a person.

Contentment (Te Taunga Manawa)

A state of satisfaction with life.

Belonging (Whanaungatanga)

A sense of meaningful connection with others, being part of a community.

Resilience (Te Oranga)

Capacity to overcome adversity, stress or uncomfortable change in ourselves or our circumstances.

Wellbeing is impacted by your environment, your physical and mental health status and the opportunities you have to engage in life.
