Ry­man Respite Care

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - STAR WEEKLY -

For fam­i­lies of older loved ones, the Christmas and sum­mer sea­son can come with worry, es­pe­cially if you are con­sid­er­ing go­ing on hol­i­day.

It’s not only fam­i­lies that worry. Older peo­ple them­selves will of­ten be the first to tell us that they don’t want to be a bur­den.

To ease con­cerns as to how loved ones will man­age on their own, Ry­man Health­care of­fers respite care over the hol­i­day pe­riod.

It’s a great way for your loved one to gain a first-hand ex­pe­ri­ence of a re­tire­ment vil­lage lifestyle, and what bet­ter time than Christmas and the sum­mer sea­son! Where they can en­joy the fes­tiv­i­ties and be sur­rounded by the warmth and kind­ness of the vil­lage com­mu­nity. All whilst re­ceiv­ing the care that they need.

The care at Ry­man vil­lages is in­di­vid­u­alised to suit res­i­dents’ needs. Our elec­tronic care pro­gramme, myRy­man Care, pro­vides de­tailed in­for­ma­tion about each res­i­dent, right there in their care room. Which greatly ben­e­fits respite res­i­dents as it en­ables care staff to get to know their res­i­dents needs and pref­er­ences sooner.

It’s re­as­sur­ing to know there are care op­tions avail­able that will work best for your fam­ily, and most im­por­tantly will pro­vide the best care for your loved one.

For more in­for­ma­tion about respite care at one of Ry­man’s 31 vil­lages, please call us on 0800 000 290. www.ry­man­health­care.co.nz

“The team showed love, care, dig­nity and re­spect, not only to Mum, but to ev­ery other res­i­dent that I saw in their care.”
