Kandahar Home, Masterton
Enliven’s Kandahar Home is comfortable and welcoming; you’ll instantly feel at home.
Situated in the popular Masterton suburb of Lansdowne, Kandahar Home is based around a grand character villa with beautiful cottage style garden surrounds.
Residents tell us they enjoy the social interaction (and banter!) with fellow residents and staff, the delicious meals, the homely feel, engaging atmosphere and spacious grounds.
Kandahar Home is a home in every sense of the word. Residents enjoy the well-appointed rooms, many of which include an ensuite bathroom.
Elders are invited to set their room up just how they like it. We encourage residents to bring along their own familiar things that make them feel at home.
Many residents bring items such as photographs, artwork, ornaments, bed covers and even favourite pieces of furniture. Some rooms are large enough to accommodate a television, stereo, radio, dressing tables or other furniture and/or a small fridge.
Like any home, at Kandahar Home there are lots of shared spaces, including the lounges, entertaining areas, the recreation room, gardens and the dining room. Residents use these spaces whenever they like, to socialise, read, do activities and host visitors. You’ll often find avid conversations happening in the shared spaces!
You’ll feel included and engaged.
Kandahar Home embraces Enliven’s philosophy of care. Based around the internationally recognised, elder-directed Eden Alternative model of care and Spark of Life approach to dementia, Enliven’s philosophy is 100% elder-centred.
At Kandahar Home we will take every opportunity we can to make sure you have companionship, spontaneity, meaningful activity, a sense of purpose and fun in your life here.
We will do our very best to make sure that you can continue with your hobbies, interests, family traditions and personal routines, and remain connected with your family, whānau, friends and community groups.
