You may be eligible for a residential care subsidy, which is offered by the government to help cover rest home costs. Eligibility and the amount of support depends on income and assets, amongst other factors.
The subsidy is also dependent on a needs assessment, which will confirm your requirement for permanent residential care. To learn more about eligibility and the subsidy overall, read our article all about how the residential care subsidy works in New Zealand.
A needs assessment helps to determine a person’s requirements for support services and whether they meet the criteria for long-term residential care. For more information, take a look at our article explaining everything you need to know about the needs assessment.
Christchurch has plenty of options for full-time residential care, independent living and assisted living. For independent and assisted living, look for Retirement Villages in Canterbury in our search pages.
