Our Care Sevices

 

Who lives in a Rest Home?

Most of our residents are pretty independent, have their wits about them but aren’t quite able to live in their own home anymore. Usually a combination of several of these things flag that it’s time for a bit more support: not cooking meals or taking medications regularly, becoming increasingly forgetful or confused, having small falls and accidents around the home, becoming lonely as it becomes difficult to stay in touch with friends and do the things they used to do.

 

Who is eligible for residential care?

Our services are typically provided to older persons, however, we have successful history of providing services to adults of all ages.

To find out if you require residential care, you can undergo a needs assessment with your local district health board (DHB). For more information of how to move into a rest home click here.In the first instance you should discuss your health with your GP who may refer you for assessment. If you have questions about how to get an assessment, contact usand we may be able to assist.

Experion Care currently provides the following types of services:

Rest Home Care

This type of care is for people who are no longer able live in their own home, but who are still moderately independent. This person may not have any complex medical conditions, but still require some regular medical assistance.

While this person may not require daily input from registered nurses, Experion Care promises to provide a registered nurse on the premises or on call 24/7.

Respite Care

This is short stay care typically 3 days to 3 weeks long. There are many reasons this care may be appropriate for your situation.

Some home-based carers may be entitled to specified amount of respite care per year funded by WINZ. Contact usand we may be able to help you determine this.

Day Care

As the name suggests, this is a type of care for the duration of a days. The resident will go home at the end of the day, but may book several days of care in a row.

Some home-based carers may be entitled to specified amount of respite care per year funded by WINZ. Contact usand we may be able to help you determine this.

In our experience, a number of our residents start with one of our homes as a ‘day care’ or a ‘respite care’ resident. This gives them the opportunity to explore ‘how living in a rest home is going to be’ and then later move in permanently, once they feel confident about it.

Convalescent Care

This type of care is typically suited for anyone who has been recently discharged from hospital, but feel that they require more time in a medical facility before they can return to their own home.

Convalescent care does not always require a needs assessment or referral from the DHB as mentioned above. For a private requirement please contact us.
