Aged Care Activities

Redroofs is well known and respected in the Dunedin area for providing a home for our residents who, in their later years are no longer able to live in their own home. Care at Redroofs is for the whole person, providing for each individual's physical, mental, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs in the knowledge that each resident is a unique individual with their own life experience and personality. Residents live with dignity and continue to live their own lifestyle as independently as possible. Redroofs has an extensive repertoire of activities and events, aimed at keeping the body and mind stimulated. Our Activity Coordinator ensures that there's a range of activities happen each day on an individual and group level.

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.
