We have 23 rooms in the home, each furnished, with en suites and call systems. All the en-suites (can be described as wet rooms), are step free and specially designed flooring to be non-slip at all times. Some of the en-suites have showers, with a bath located on the first floor with bath chair for easy access.
Overall, the rooms are comfortable and colour coordinated, the walls have lovely pictures, there are beautiful fresh and dried flower arrangements and a combination of overhead lighting and table lamps. All rooms in the home are cleaned daily by the same staff that take care of the residents, so their individual preferences and requirements are respected. The retirement home is regularly maintained by professional staff, ensuring everything that should work in the rooms, does. We also ensure before any new resident occupies a room on admission, that it has been throughly cleaned and prepared and in most cases, a fresh coat of paint too.
At HRH we want our residents to feel at home, so people are welcome to personalise their rooms, with their own furnishings, paintings and occasionally furniture. There are phone points in every room, and Internet access can be easily set up. The majority of residents in the home have keys to their rooms, with master key access being available. We have a fully qualified and experienced maintenance staff for fitting extra picture hooks or to adapt the aids within the room, to assist any new residents needs.
There are 10 rooms on the ground floor, and 13 rooms on the first floor. These rooms are accessed by passenger lift or stairs. The average size of a room at HRH is 14sq metres.
The lounge room is carpeted, and the heating is kept at a pleasant ambient temperature throughout the year. Morning drinks and afternoon teas are usually served either in the communal areas, or in the residents room.
Here at HRH, we provide some of the best food. In fact, we take enormous pride in our home cooking approach, and our residents appreciate the choice, and the standard of food. As with all decisions made at HRH, the menu is something that is collectively discussed by the residents, at the residents meetings. Every day at the home, breakfast is served individually, lunch and supper are formal meals offered in the Dining room. These meal times are central to life at the home, as this is when people come together and enjoy the superb food, and good company, with staff always on hand during meal times to help.
The menus at HRH change with the seasons. We can cater for all sorts of special diets and are more than happy to help out with advice and guidance.
