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.
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.

From the outside this isnt as flash looking as the fancy sterile resthomes. But inside it is pure gold. The residents are allowed to be themselves. They are encouraged to be valued members of a community. They can help prepare meals, they can help clean vehicles, help garden. Dad had dementia and despite the many issues he was happy at Tasman Rest home. He loved being outside and was able to walk the circuit all day (which he usually did). Even in the rain with his jacket on.
It doesnt look as flash as others.

The wonderful staff at Tasman provided outstanding care for my mum throughout her stay. They were, without exception, calm, kind and warm-hearted toward her at all times. That she was able to smile and laugh with us right up to her last days is a tribute to the ‘best friends’ and ‘small homes’ concept being implemented by DementiaCare NZ. We will always remain grateful that we chose Tasman to care for her.
Suggestions to Management or General Comment
To anyone viewing this facility we encourage you to focus on the calm atmosphere and attitude of the caring staff. So while the rooms and lounges are bright and cheery they don’t have the latest decor. Funds are obviously spent on providing the very best in personal care for the residents as we found. We never regretted for even one minute our decision to settle Mum here.

Helping you find the right retirement or restcare facilities.
The team at Aged Advisor are locals that have first hand experience with Retirement Villages, Rest Homes and Aged Care facilities, either through our line of work (providing services to residents within these facilities) or by having family or loved ones living there. We do not own or run restcare or retirement facilities, and we do not own any shares (personally or as a company) in any Retirement Complexes or Groups - so we have no financial interests in these facilities. We simply want the best for the people that live there or are looking to make a decision of moving to one.
