The aging of the New Zealand population is on the increase with well-known challenges, one of these being the supply of facilities that will be available to meet the requirements of high dependency care.
It is estimated that by 2026 the population of New Zealand will grow almost 20%, with the population age group over 65 estimated to increase 84%. With this in mind Kamo Home and Village are planning ahead and will be developing hospital care within the existing facility.
Resident entry to hospital care requires that an assessment has taken place by the Needs Assessment Team (NASC Team) from the Northland Base Hospital and states that a resident requires high dependency care.
Our Hosptial is a recently upgraded unit with 15 bedrooms fully equipped to provide Hospital Level Care. The homely unit has 3 bathrooms and 3 toilets which residents share. The communal areas comprise of dining room and lounge. There is also a spacious out door re some of which is covered to enable out door eating and recreational activities.
Residents already within our complex (Village, Tuatara Court, Rest Home, Alice Court), will have priority to this facility, this is to ensure that our commitment to provide Quality for Life with Care is accessible to all residents. At times we may have available beds for other high dependency people and enquiries are always welcome.
