Kingfisher House, located in the heart of Devonport village, provides care for people suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia.
At Kingfisher House the aim is to provide as much normality in the resident’s day-to-day life as we can. We promote an in-home-like environment and encourage taking part in everyday activities like cooking, laundry, gardening and caring for animals.
"A large, lovely and warm villa that is homely and has a real feel of Aotearoa/Kiwiana with a touch of class throughout."
As you walk into Kingfisher House you are welcomed with its charming, warm, and inviting homely feel. The large open plan kitchen is set within the dining area so the chef can be seen preparing the daily meals and residents often join in with the preparation or cleaning up.
Staff at Kingfisher are experienced and qualified in their fields. They spend everyday with the residents and live life alongside them, eating as a family, going on outings, playing games, or just watching TV. Stimulation and socialisation are an important part of keeping up the wellbeing for someone living with dementia.
We welcome volunteers to the home who can share their skills with our family. A new face is always welcome and exciting, so if you are a pianist, artist, or love to read the paper or have something or some time to share, we would love to meet you.
Sadly, this is a disease that can affect people younger in life as well as in their senior years. We are here to help in any way we can. Leeanne the house manager is happy to show you around, have a cup of tea and answer any questions you may have.
