Chalmers Home, New Plymouth
Chalmers Home is a modern rest home with spark.
The residents of Chalmers Home tell us they love the friendly, vibrant and family-focused atmosphere. Of course, they love the beautiful views too.
Overlooking the Tasman Sea to the west and Mount Taranaki to the East, Chalmers Home has arguably one of the best rest home outlooks in the country.
At Chalmers Home we embrace Enliven’s philosophy of care. That means we take every opportunity to make sure you have companionship, spontaneity, fun, meaningful activity and a sense of purpose in your life here.
You’re encouraged to really make the home your own.
You can get involved in the decision-making about what happens at the home, have a say about what is on the menu or in the recreation programme, bring a beloved pet to live with you or even go to breakfast your dressing gown!
Residents enjoy the modern, well-appointed rooms, many of which include an ensuite bathroom and/or balcony or courtyard. Of course, you can bring along you own familiar things that make you feel at home. Many residents bring items such as photographs, artwork, ornaments, bed covers and even favourite pieces of furniture.
Uniquely, at Chalmers Home we have six separate ‘cottages’ where each small group of residents are able to enjoy their own lounge and domestic style kitchen and dining. Of course, there are some larger lounge/dining and entertainment areas for bigger groups and lovely shared courtyard gardens too.
Chalmers Home’s top accreditation.
Chalmers Home has a 4-year Ministry of Health certification. That’s the maximum certification achievement awarded by the ministry.
To achieve certification the home underwent a rigorous audit process which looked at a multitude of important aspects of aged care.
Chalmers Home received fantastic results as the auditors looked into 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.
A continuum of care.
As your needs change, so too can the support Enliven provides.
At Chalmers Home we offer both rest home and hospital level care.
We cater for elders with dementia symptoms although we are not a locked dementia facility. We’re also able to offer short-term respite and health recovery care at Chalmers Home.
