Glenwood is here to assist you with both long-term or respite solutions, providing excellent and professionally trained staff for live-in care.
Rest Home and Hospital
Glenwood staff work hard to make Glenwood as much like a private “family” home as possible.
We value our relatively small size - with only 42 residents - our modern decor, spacious rooms all with heat pumps and ensuites, our enclosed courtyard and sunny garden setting.
Central to the Glenwood philosophy is an emphasis on celebrating the individuality of residents.
Excellent clinical care is provided 24/7 by our highly qualified team of registered nurses and health care assistants to ensure you receive the appropriate medical care the moment you need it.
Glenwood provides a courtesy van for outings and visits to off site facilities such as hospitals and Doctor appointments.
Glenwood's on-site kitchen provides delicious, healthy meals and snacks, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal produce and variety, catering to individual needs and preferences. The tasty, menus are dietician approved and vary regularly.
Morning and afternoon teas feature yummy home baked treats and Happy Hour on Fridays is a popular social occasion. Special events are celebrated throughout the year with special meals.
Bedrooms are spacious, all have heatpumps so residents can enjoy their own comfort level.
All bedrooms have either individual or shared ensuites, are sunny and have pleasant outlooks.
Spiritual, Cultural, Mental, Physical and Social Needs
The Glenwood approach recognises that needs go beyond general welfare - needs which are vital for individuals to be content.
Glenwood's chaplain, Ian, enjoys catching up with residents frequently and is available to give further support to residents or their families whenever required.
Communion and special services are held regularly and Ian will assist residents from other faith backgrounds to keep in touch with their own communities.
Weekly church services at Glenwood are also conducted by various local denominations.
PET FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT
Glenwood’s Activities staff help residents to continue to enjoy their interests, or find new ones - whether they be art, music, exercise, singing, craft, flower arranging, gardening or outings - whatever appeals. A varied, daily programme of activities is available for residents to choose to enjoy if they wish.
When moving to Glenwood, residents are encouraged to bring mementos or a special piece of furniture from home. Familar and well-loved items transform a room into a space where people feel comfortable and at home.
