Opunake Cottage Rest Home

Where comfort, care and compassion count

PROPOSED ALTERATIONS & ADDITIONS FOR OPUNAKE COTTAGE REST HOME

Background

Our kitchen is the original kitchen when the building was converted to the current resthome and is extremely worn and tired and we are only just scraping through our audit requirements.  Also, we have no facilities for families to meet in private from other people at the Cottage, plus we would also like a meeting room that can also be used for staff training and we are desperate for storage facilities.  Basically we want to bring the Cottage up to the 21st Century and provide rooms with more facilities for our residents own ease of comfort with potentially a couple more double rooms and more with ensuites.  

It is only a couple of years ago that we were constantly at full capacity and over the last 6 months we are back up to at least 85%, therefore it is critical that we maintain at least 21 rooms available at all times with our aging population. 

These plans are still very much in the draft stage but have been able to give us an estimate of what it would cost to improve the services that we can offer to our Coastal Community.  

The first plan shows are current floor plan and then there is suggested phases of construction.

In 2019 we want to come out and meet with members of our community and ask for your input and suggestions as to what you think we should be providing in the future.  We have thought about dementia units, hospital wing, dialysis unit and even private villas as we do have a large section and it is the best utilisation and providing the right services for our residents with the funds that are available..

We would like to think by mid 2019 we can finalise the plans, and start the funding process and go out for tender by the end of 2019.  More importantly, start to see action at the site hopefully by 2020.
