Enliven’s Kandahar Home is homely and welcoming; residents enjoy the engaging atmosphere and spacious grounds. Situated in the Masterton suburb of Lansdowne, this character home is close to town yet has a relaxing semi-rural outlook.
While Kandahar Home is able to support people with memory loss and early dementia symptoms, our sister site, Kandahar Court, offers specialist dementia care in a secure environment.
Enliven’s Kandahar Court has spark. This home is more than bricks and mortar; it’s a place of connection, compassion and understanding. We understand the experience of dementia can be distressing. At Kandahar Court staff are specially trained in supporting people with dementia and their family and friends.
As with all Enliven Central’s homes, Kandahar Home and Court follows an ‘elder-centred’ philosophy of care called the Eden Alternative. This means that residents are able to participate in the running of their home, encouraged to continue their hobbies and interests, and spend plenty of time with friends and family. You can even bring your beloved pet with you when you move in.
Family is as important to all Enliven Central homes as it is to you, so your family are welcome to visit you at any time. There is plenty of space for grandchildren to play, and friends and family can even join you for meals.
The refurbished bedrooms are bright and spacious, and residents are invited to decorate them with their own furniture and precious things from home, if they want to. There are also plenty of communal areas, like lounges and dining rooms where you can socialise and relax.
Rest home and hospital level care are provided at Kandahar Home. Specialist dementia care is offered at Kandahar Court, a purpose-built home where residents can continue to live an active, happy life in the safety of a secure site with specially trained staff.
Respite care is also available at Kandahar Home and Court for when your usual carer needs a break and convalescence after an illness or surgery. Accommodation comprises of fully furnished rooms and you are able to enjoy all the same facilities and activitiesas longer term residents.
A highlight for many residents is the social life and companionship at Kandahar Home and Court. As well as enjoying the company of others at a similar stage of life, Kandahar Home and Court residents get involved in organising daily happenings and special events – making the most of the varied social calendar.
