This facility is owned by Alpine Retirement Group.
The Alpine View Care Centre, in Waitikiri, Marshlands, Christchurch, is a forty-seven bed care facility and is located just across the road from the village, at 10 Alpine View Lane. Twenty-four hour healthcare options are available.
Alpine View's website states that: "Your personal house has a fire alarm, burglar alarm and outside sensor lighting, and the entrance to the site is also visually covered with 24 hour CCTV monitoring."
The site goes on to say, "Set in three and a half acres of land, the care facility has an unrestricted atmosphere, due to its openness and mountain views. The lovely landscaped gardens provide a wonderful environment for the elderly".
It also says, "You will have your own personal remote alarm to contact us in an emergency. Each bedroom has its own ensuite unit with shower and toilet, telephone jackpoint, LCD TV and radiant ceiling heater (with thermostatic control). An under-floor heating system provides stable and comfortable warmth throughout the facility. Each bedroom and ensuite is equipped with a nurse-call system for immediate communication."

Why we have Rest Home Audits
All rest homes and aged residential care facilities are certified and audited to ensure they:
- provide safe, appropriate care for their residents
- meet the standards set out in the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001.
Types of audit and when they happen
Certification / Surveillance Audits
happen every 1–4 years. After the audit, rest homes are certified for a set period of time (the exact length depends on how well the rest home performed at the certification audit). Once this time is up, the rest home must be re-audited and its certification renewed.
An unannounced spot audit (also called a surveillance audit) happens around the middle of a rest home’s certification period. The spot audit ensures progress has been made on outstanding areas identified in the earlier certification audit and that standards haven’t slipped.
In addition to audits, rest homes have to report to their DHB on how they are addressing issues found at audit. These improvements are then verified at the next audit event.
Other types of audit
Provisional audits happen when a provider purchases a certified rest home from another provider.
Partial provisional audits happen when a provider wants to add services to their certificate (eg, a rest home adding hospital-level care), when a new rest home is built, or when a provider adds capacity or reconfigures their services (eg, builds a new wing, upgrades rooms). Before 2014, audits for adding capacity or reconfiguring services were referred to as verification audits.
Rest homes may have unannounced inspections by the Ministry under the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001 in the event of a serious complaint.
