Our Care Offering
Resthaven is known for its warm, friendly and homely atmosphere. An older style facility surrounded by beautiful cottage gardens, its size is deceptive when viewed from our street frontage. Resthaven has a heart of gold with all of our staff committed to providing the very best of care. As the adage goes “don’t judge a book by its cover”. If quality care is your priority, then we welcome you to join our community.
Our activities programme is provided separately for each care level, although residents often join together for theme days, entertainment and outings. Staff learn about residents’ interests to ensure the programme is meaningful to all. A wide variety of activities are offered by our activities/diversional therapist.
In the dementia unit activities are specifically tailored to help those with memory loss, with a focus on reminiscing, brain exercise and relaxation.
What’s Near By
Located within the ‘four avenues’ of Christchurch, Resthaven offers the convenience of the central city without the parking hassles. Off street parking is available at the front and back of the facility.
It’s an easy stroll to Pepperberry Café, which is rumoured to make the best coffee in Christchurch. Edgeware Village is a short drive away and has a supermarket, post shop and pub. Public transport is available at the gate and there is a chemist just over the road. The City Central Library is also just down the road.
