Rest Home Care
Our rest homes cater to those who are mostly independent but may require some assistance with personal care and general day-to-day activities.
Hospital level care is provided for those residents who have a significant disability and medical concerns.
Short-term stays, or respite care services, are available to those who are unwell (eg, recovering from an illness or hospital stay) or who simply are in need of extra support.
For those nearing the end of their lives, specialist medical services and clinical staff are available to meet ongoing comfort and care requirements.
Young Disabled Care
Young Physically Disabled (YPD) care is available in certain locations, for those under 65 who require assistance with self-care, mobility and/or communication.
facility manager - Experience in Aged Care: 25 years+
Mandy is a registered nurse with 25 years of experience, 18 of which have been in aged care because it’s an area she is most passionate about.
Over this time, she has seen huge changes in legislation and training that have greatly improved the care and the rights of our older people.
She’s glad to have been a part of this change and see it demonstrated daily by the care and respect shown to the residents by the staff of Potter Home.
Mandy is also Chairperson for the Northland Branch of NZACA and a member of the Whangarei District Council Positive Aging Advisory Group. Her outside interests are animals (her Golden Labrador, Billy specifically) travel, reading and computer games.
