We have different levels of long-term residential support (with the full range available all in one location at some villages), including rest home care, hospital care, dementia day care and secure dementia care.
Respite care is also available. For example, when someone is recovering from an operation, or their carer goes on holiday.
There are registered nurses at most Selwyn villages on a 24 hour, seven days a week basis.
Our Chief Medical Officer of Medical Services is a GP with a specialist interest in Geriatric Medicine and Palliative Care and leads a team specialising in caring for older people, devoted to the care and comfort of their clients.
All our residential care homes are equipped with an innovative nurse call system. The call points are highly visible and specifically designed to be easy to use, giving real peace of mind to people with limited mobility, sensory impairments or dementia. In our newer hospitals, calls are discreet and targeted (unlike the traditional loud call bell) which gives everyone more privacy.
