Care home with residential hospital level care on-site
We advocate ‘resident directed care’ where the care is led by our resident’s choices with an emphasis on providing quality of life.
For a greater daily support we offer a full continuum of care with hospital level care on-site. A 40-bed hospital, offering 24-hour care, offers a safe and comfortable environment. The hospital is in the same complex as our serviced apartments and near to the villas, so partners can visit easily.
Great care comes from great people.
At Somervale we pride ourselves on the quality of our staff because they make such a big difference to how your loved one live. We look for staff with the right skills and relevant hands-on experience, but there is more to it than that. This job is about relationships and earning trust, so we handpick staff who care deeply about our residents. For them, treating people with dignity and respect comes naturally – it comes from the heart.
Our care home is certified and audited to provide safe and appropriate care for our residents with Ministry of Health Audit reports available here.
