Some of our rooms incur an extra charge as do some of the activities on offer.  You will be fully advised of this prior to admission.

Day Support

Rangiura provides a number of day support options both within the Resthome environment and our Secure Dementia Unit.  There is a planned month by month activity calendar with organised outings to various locations in the local area.  All of our day support is overseen by our Diversional Therapy Coordinator and our Clinical Nurse Leader.

Hospital and Resthome

Rangiura has 80 beds available for either Resthome or Hospital level support.  This includes 6 studio rooms with facilities for people who are more independent.  A large number of our rooms have ceiling hoists to ensure maximum safety and support for our less mobile Residents.  We have a small number of rooms which can be used as doubles if partners wish to share.  All rooms look out onto landscaped gardens or open countryside.

We offer the security of 24/7 access to Registered Nurses and experienced Care staff.  The home is supported by our own specialist Doctors from Residential Eldercare Services who hold in house clinics twice a week and this service is complimented by our Nurse Practitioner who also visits twice a week.  Our Doctors are also on call should the need arise.

There are a number of communal areas which compliment the home including two conservatories, various lounges, dining areas and intimate seating nooks which provide ample space and privacy for visitors and family to utilise.

Each Resident is treated as an Individual and we encourage them to bring their own pictures for the walls, furniture, TV etc. as appropriate. Friends and family are welcome to visit as often as possible.

Dementia Support

Fern Haven has been specifically designed for older people living with Dementia and who require secure support.  It is based on the Household model of care, creating a small intentional community for a group of people requiring this level of support and incorporates family and staff.  It is based on the concepts of the Green House Model.  For more information on the Eden Alternative Greenhouse Project click here.

We can support 19 Residents in our Fern Haven unit in a total of 16 rooms, 3 of which are double and offer the opportunity for partners to share should they wish to do so.  All rooms have ensuite facilities and we have a kitchen, dining area and open plan lounges.  It is a unique building capitalising on innovative concepts of providing support and has won awards both nationally and internationally being one of kind in New Zealand.

Palliative Care

We offer specialist care and support for people with a terminal illness.

Respite Care

We welcome people for overnight support to join us for a break. This supports the elderly and their families.
