Rest Home & Hospital

Care is What We Do Best

With 24/7 elderly care available throughout The Village Palms in Christchurch, our residents can relax, feel secure and enjoy life as part of a supportive community.

You’ll find our staff are dedicated to providing outstanding service and care to all of our residents, and are always ready to
be of assistance.

Our rest home and hospital care facilities include:

  • 24/7 emergency call buttons in every room
  • Dedicated care by registered nurses, carers and household staff
  • Regular GP visits, with extra visits arranged as required
  • Additional support from a physiotherapist, diversional therapist, and podiatrist

All new residents are seen by our physiotherapist to assess their mobility needs and to create a full mobility plan, if needed. Our GP prescribes any required medication, to be administered by the clinical staff.

Our diversional therapist organises regular activities, including:

  • Mini bus outings
  • Quizzes
  • Music sessions
  • Visiting school groups and church groups

Rest Home and Hospital Rooms

Our rest home and hospital rooms provide a comfortable, well-furnished space for you to enjoy the company of family and friends. We encourage you to make it your own with personal items and mementos.

Each room comes with:

  • An entertainment unit with built-in free to air channels, and the option to purchase Sky TV
  • A telephone and access to WiFi for up to three devices, with competitive rates
  • A private spacious ensuite, fully tiled, and beautifully appointed
  • Dual-purpose care beds, meaning that if your care levels change you can remain in your room and receive a higher level of care in familiar surroundings

For residents who require specialised care, some rooms are fitted with piped oxygen and electric ceiling hoists, for the comfort and safety of both the resident and our staff.

Care Suites and Studio Apartments

For rest home or hospital residents looking for a more luxurious and spacious option, we have eight studio apartments and two care suites featuring a kitchenette as well as bathroom ensuite.

Residents can purchase a studio or care suite on a ‘License to Occupy’ basis along with care packages designed to suit individual needs.

Each studio unit has a kitchenette where the resident can prepare snacks and refreshments. Should care suite or studio apartment residents be assessed as requiring rest home level care, this can be delivered in your apartment so there is no need to move out of your home.

A True Community

The Village Palms includes several well-appointed communal spaces across our property. We encourage you to use these spaces for socialising with other residents, or meeting family and friends.

These facilities include:

  • An intimate lounge for small groups, ideal for enjoying a quiet conversation
  • A spacious main lounge with a large open fireplace and conveniently located TVs, perfect for relaxing in a larger group or for taking part in the regular programme of activities and events
  • A north-facing verandah with full-height windows, to enjoy fresh air and sunshine in a sheltered environment
