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.

I have been here now for nearly a month receiving Palliative end of life support.
The staff are wonderful and Ii felt at home straight away. It was a very hard decision to leave my home. The transition has been made so much easier BV by the caring and thoughtfulness if the staff at Wesley and I would have no hesitation in recommending this facility.
No negatives to report
Suggestions to Management or General Comment
The staff appear to be well supported and this shines through. I'm sure the management team have worked hard to achieve this . As a resident I feel comfortable in voicing concerns as know they are passed on.

Wesley Care is possibly about the only facility in Christchurch that offers Studio Units for Aged Care which includes a spacious lounge, kitchenette, bedroom and an ensuite bathroom including washing machine and dryer. The way they have set it out is like having a home away from home. [The] staff are great and caring towards residents and each other.

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.
