Irwell Rest Home is a Stage II Rest Home catering for the elderly in need of care, comfort and security. We provide Respite Care, Convalescent Care, Short-term care and Long-term care.
Irwell Rest Home is a purpose built rest home and is privately owned and operated by the Nicolson Family of Island Bay. Irwell was architecturally built to fully utilise the wonderful rural and sea views, and all day sun. The Building is well insulated, has a robust fire evacuation scheme and a high earthquake safety rating.
All bedrooms at Irwell are single rooms, with each room having its own en-suite comprising shower, toilet and vanity. Bedrooms also have a television, refrigerator, telephone and heating. We provide genuine 'home-cooked' meals and cater for most dietary and cultural needs.
Staff employed at Irwell are very friendly and competent, most have had many years experience in caring for the elderly. We offer all staff on-going education to help them keep up-to-date with the ever changing needs of the Elderly. Most care staff have gained the Level 3 National Certificate in Caring for the Elderly.
We have a full activities programme which runs Monday – Friday. Many and varied activities are on offer including outings, newspaper reading, exercise programme, indoor bowls and musical events to name a few.
Our vision for the rest home is to create a 'family' orientated rest home, ensuring a 'stress-free' life-style for our residents. The peaceful surroundings, skilled staff and family atmosphere will ensure that you, your loved ones or friend's stay will be comfortable and enjoyable.
