Kowhainui Home in Whanganui, is a modern, purpose-built home which offers excellent clinical care in a warm, friendly environment. It is located in St. John’s Hill, and has a welcoming, community feel. Kowhainui Home is located right next door to Kowhainui Village, so is perfect for couples who require different levels of care.
As with all Enliven Central’s homes, Kowhainui Home 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.
There are many communal spaces to enjoy at Kowhainui Home, such as lounges, dining rooms and lovely gardens. There’s also space for you to take time out on your own for some peace and quiet, including your individual private room. Residents are invited to decorate their comfortable bedrooms as they please, with their own furniture and precious things from home. We also offer premium bedrooms that are more spacious, with en-suite and kitchenette options.
Rest Home care at Kowhainui Home ensures that your clinical needs are met in an environment where you feel comfortable and supported. Hospital facilities mean that Kowhainui can offer care to residents with more complex clinical needs, and our 24 hour nursing staff are highly trained and very caring.
Kowhainui Home also provides respite care when your usual carer needs a break and health recovery care after an illness or surgery. You get a cosy fully furnished room during your stay and the use of all the activities and facilities available to longer term residents.
