Residential and Respite Care
The health and wellbeing of our residents is top priority, and we have medical professionals on staff to support and care for residents in whatever capacity they need. We also have access to other medical care services and non-medical care options at the request of residents.
Our team are dedicated to providing great care and continually go above and beyond to truly understand and care for the needs of each individual resident.
We place high importance in protecting the health and welfare of our residents.
Our medical professionals are constantly monitoring the health of our residents, and can provide the medical care they need. We have a registered nurse and/or a doctor on call at all times.
Residents have access to a qualified podiatrist and a foot care professional, both of whom visit the facility regularly. We can also arrange visits to a local physiotherapist to help with any mobility issues residents may have.
Providing care to our residents isn't limited to medical services, we can arrange non-medical care services to ensure residents feel as comfortable as possible.
Several of our staff members speak Te Reo, and if residents need assistance with any other languages an interpreter can be arranged.
We accept residents of all denominations of faith and cultural backgrounds and can arrange visits from local chaplains and other spiritual advisors. Sheaff's also has a relationship with the local Kaumatua, who often visits residents in our facility.
We can arrange for Paula, our local hairdresser to visit residents wanting to book an appointment, allowing them to have their hair done from the convenience of their own rooms (appointments are on a user pays basis).
Sheaff's offers respite care (subject to availability), for patients that need a short term break from their homes, or more intensive care. We understand the importance of respite care, not only for the patients, but also for their carers to be able to step away temporarily from their responsibilities to recharge.
We also offer day stays for respite patients to enjoy Sheaff's warm, homely feeling whilst getting the care they need.
