Services and facilities
Also located in the Ivan Ward Centre, Brian Wells House residents will be able to access the shop, hair salon and consulting rooms for visiting health professionals.
Our new care suites have been developed according to a ‘household’ layout. By having small communities or ‘households’ within the larger care community, the care suites provide an environment where people have a real sense of belonging within a household setting.
Brian Wells household has:
- its own 24/7 care partners
- lounge area
- dining area for members of the household to dine together
- domestic open plan kitchen for residents, whanau and staff\
- A lovely garden where residents and families can enjoy the outdoors
Each resident’s care suite has:
- its own ensuite (bidet optional)
- a fully adjustable electric hospital bed
- a wardrobe and other basic furnishings are available if desired
- a private phone may be installed in any room (rentals are charged to residents through Telecom)
- smart call bell system
We follow best practise and research by not providing TVs in our dementia care suites. Rather, we encourage these residents not to isolate themselves, and engage with other people instead.
A premium room charge of $60 per day (GST inclusive) applies to all rooms in Brian Wells House, as of 1 July 2020.
