Aged Care Information   

This facility is owned by Dementia Care NZ.

The website for Avonlea Rest Home Dementia Care (located in Addington, Christchurch) states that: "We welcome new residents and enjoy getting to know them. People are encouraged to continue with familiar roles and remain involved in the running of their home."

It continues to say that: "Our residents enjoy a wide range of activities, outings and community involvement. Family become part of the community we have and we encourage their continuing involvement in their loved ones' lives. We have several programmes available for family support."

The services that Avonlea Dementia Care include: "Residential capacity for caring for 64 people. This is achieved by the division of the facility into 6 separate homes. All of the homes differ slightly in design, which gives the feeling of entering a different environment with a unique character. Each one has an open plan kitchen/dining room/lounge area. This is in keeping with New Zealand house design and replicates the interior of many homes."

It also says that: "Residents are able to access the kitchen area, and residents are able to take part in homely activities such as sweeping the floor, wiping down the benchtop or drying the dishes.
Diversional therapists often conduct cooking activities with residents in these kitchen areas, and the smell of fresh baking often greets visitors on arrival."

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
Certification 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.

Ministry inspections

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.

DHB issues-based audits

DHBs can conduct issues-based audits under the Aged Related Residential Care Contract. For information on these audits please contact the relevant DHB.
