Quality of Care
This facility is owned by Heritage Lifecare Limited.
At Resthaven, we know it is very important to offer choices and to really listen to what our residents and their families want. Recognising the individual needs of our residents and to promote a friendly and comfortable environment is an important part of our philosophy. Residents get the help they need to be as independent as possible. The daily care fee, which is set under our contract with the district health board, covers a core care package. Other services are available on demand.
There are small lounges located at convenient points around the home are ideal for small groups of residents or residents and their visitors. There are two kitchenettes which contain a fridge - residents and visitors are welcome to make a ‘cuppa’ here.
