Person Centred Care

At Kaiapoi Lodge care is always coordinated and tailored to the needs of the individual.

Person-centred care is a way of thinking and doing things that sees the people using Kaiapoi Lodge as equal partners in planning, developing and monitoring care to make sure it meets their needs. This means putting residents and their families at the centre of decisions and seeing them as experts, working alongside our staff to get the best outcome.

Person-centred care is about considering people’s desires, values, and lifestyles; seeing the person as an individual, and working together to develop appropriate solutions. Being compassionate, thinking about things from the person’s point of view and being respectful are all important.
Historically, people were expected to fit in with the routines and practices that the healthcare providers felt were most appropriate. But in order to be person-centred, services need to change to be more flexible to meet people’s needs in a manner that is best for them. At Kaiapoi Lodge we want to hear about your decisions, your views and your goals.

Not only are staff always at hand but they can tailor the service they offer to suit your individual needs too.
