Cashmere Home is one of just a few aged care facilities in New Zealand with full Eden Alternative certification – the internationally recognised elder-directed model of care. It first received certification in 2014 when only one other New Zealand home had reached this pinnacle of elder-directed care.
Cashmere Home and Cashmere Heights Home also have 4-year Ministry of Health certification – the maximum certification achievement that has be awarded by the ministry.
To achieve certification the homes underwent a rigorous audit process which looked at a multitude of things, including the way residents are cared for, how staff interact with the residents, how policies and procedures are followed and applied, documentation standards and time frames, the general environment as well as the satisfaction levels of residents, families and staff.
