Putting people first
Wesley Community Action’s ‘Wesley Way’ shapes the care at Wesleyhaven. The residents feel a sense of dignity, well being, uniqueness and a purpose for living because;
- Wesleyhaven provides care that respects people’s independence and need to exercise control over their lives
- Wesleyhaven provides the opportunity for people to make and maintain meaningful relationships and by supporting existing social networks and primary carer relationships
- Wesleyhaven supports and encourages the development of existing abilities
- Wesleyhaven creates environments that provide for personal choice, space and dignity
- Wesleyhaven maintains connections with the local community.
Our staff take great care and pride in their excellent standard of service where each person’s unique needs, tastes, safety and comforts are top priority. We aim to assist people to feel ‘at home’, to make connections with others (if they so choose,) and to feel part of a wider community in our friendly facilities.
Our greatest asset is our staff. They are an experienced and committed team, many of whom have worked at the village for decades. Some represent multi-generations of the same families. Our ratio of staff to residents is excellent and research tells us that the level of care is amongst the best. For many residents, the Wesleyhaven team have become part of their extended family.
Wesleyhaven Village is home to approximately 120 residents. In 1953 Welseyhaven was one of the first retirement villages in New Zealand and is one of the largest facilities in the Hutt Valley to offer a continuum of quality care on the one site.
Since the 1950’s approximately 7,000 people have lived in and participated in the life of this vibrant village.
Wesleyhaven continues to evolve its holistic community approach, connecting residents within the village community while also reconnecting them to the wider community.
