Our Care Offering
Holmwood is often described by residents and relatives as having a warm and homely atmosphere. Many of our team and residents are locals who know each other from the community, which adds to the friendly feel of the facility. Our staff have a wealth of experience in Aged Care, and are always welcoming with ready smiles. At Holmwood we love to socialise, and our lounges are well utilised for regular activities and catch-ups with family and friends. The dining room is another busy haven where residents join for fantastic home cooked meals of all those popular family favourites. We also have two cats and one dog onsite too. You can also check the following website for some independent feedback about the service we provide www.agedadvisor.nz.
Our Diversional Therapist with fifteen years’ experience, is deeply involved in creating a varied activities programme for the enjoyment and benefit of our residents. This includes bowls, housie, quizzes and walks. There are regular outings to local points of interest such as Hamner hot pools, Akaroa, the river for picnics, the Alpaca farm, Museum or if it’s wet, a casual drive and ice cream. We have many local schools and pre-schools who come to visit regularly. Our activities programme is supported by a team of volunteers from our local community.
