Kingswood Healthcare acknowledges the Treaty of Waitangi and our staff are culturally sensitive. Local Kaumatua often call on our Rest Homes and assist us with better understanding Māori culture. We also acknowledge Polynesian culture and aim to provide culturally sensitive care.
Residents may wish to bring their own paintings or ornaments, or perhaps their own favourite chair to make their room feel more like home and this will be limited only by the Resident’s care needs and the space available. Private telephones and Televisions / Sky can be installed in the Rest Home bedrooms if desired, but Residents do have the use of the Rest Home phones to receive and make calls and television is available for all to view in the lounges.
We employ the services of a qualified podiatrist who visits the rest home every six weeks. Mobile hairdressers call into the rest homes on a regular basis and carry out their services in our specially equipped hair salons on site. Our Caregivers are encouraged to spend quality time with our residents and very often, as their day allows, they can do the Ladies’ nails for them.
At Kingswood Rest Homes we welcome visitors at any time and look forward to getting to know friends and family. Ongoing participation in our Residents daily lives is encouraged. Birthdays are always acknowledge and Christmas, New Year and Easter are celebrated at our Rest Homes every year.
Day Care Programmes are available at the Kingswood Rest Homes and may be funded by the Waikato Health Board. The progammes are varied and interesting and morning and afternoon teas and lunches are served to all attendees. Transport to and from the Rest Homes for the Day Care Programmes can be arranged within a 5km radius.
