Thank you for downloading Important questions to ask rest home managers. We have emailed you a copy so you can refer to it as needed.
Marlborough has a range of different residential care providers. Most are locally owned rest homes, though a few of the larger rest home providers, like Oceania and Arvida, also have a presence in the region.
In New Zealand, the government offers a residential care subsidy to help cover rest home costs for eligible people. The amount you can receive depends on your income and assets.
Eligibility for the subsidy depends on several factors, including age, financial status and whether the care home has a contract with the DHB. A needs assessment must also have been carried out to confirm the requirement for permanent residential care.
For a more detailed overview, take a look at our article on 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. Needs assessments are performed by a DHB-approved assessor, and can provide clarity on what kinds of care and support services are available to you.
For more information, check out our article on how the needs assessment works to learn more.
Not everyone requires the same level of care. If you are looking for independent or assisted living, use our search pages to find Retirement Villages in Marlborough.
