Best practice dementia care in Levin
With a circular architectural design that ensures residents can always find their way back to the main lounge area, Summerset by the Ranges dementia centre has a secure outdoor garden area and warm, inviting communal areas inside, as well as additional features to reduce noise levels. The centre also offers a silent nurse call system linked to staff pagers so residents always have help at hand.
Specialised dementia care seven days a week
Our dedicated, professionally trained staff provide tailored dementia care to our residents. This includes a full activities programme and weekly outings. We work closely with our residents and their families to understand and support them with the changes through this process.
The first dementia centre in New Zealand to offer apartment style living
Within the centre are Care Suites - one bedroom apartments which offer more freedom and independence. Each Care Suite features a unique carpeted wall for residents to personalise and display photos, enabling them to recognise their home, family and friends. Modelled on international dementia design standards, the Care Suites offer apartment-style living allowing people living with dementia to continue to lead active, productive lives. Friends and family are welcome to stay overnight.
