A Resident Story - April 2017
"Pa was determined not to end up in an Aged Care, outgoing, proud and fiercely independent he lived in the home he built almost fifty years earlier. Unfortunately his memory started to become muddled, he went for walks in the early hours and had difficulty finding his way home.
We soon realised it was time to get Pa help. Two weeks respite ended after three days. Pa said, “He’d seen enough of New Zealand”, “take me home”. We all knew that we needed somewhere permanent for Pa, so we found a placement near home. Now we can relax we thought, NO WAY!
Pa wasn’t going quietly and ended up in hospital for Christmas and his 89th birthday. The next three months were looking like he’d come to the end of the road. The Nursing Home said he didn’t fit their criteria anymore and if he was to return they would find somewhere else for him within two weeks. Then when the hospital said he’s ready for discharge we had nowhere for him to go.
Searching frantically over the next few days Pa was offered a placement at Charles Young. We didn’t hesitate to accept the room and when we arrived the reception was incredibly warm and welcoming. Pa’s care needs were discussed, the Doctor reviewed his medications and over the next few days and weeks we saw a magnificent change in him, for the first time in three months he smiled and was able to hold a small conversation again.
Spending more time awake little by little he started to mobilise, sit in the dining room and feed himself amongst other residents and take part in daily activities. It was great to see him interact.
Our family is at complete rest with Pa in Charles Young, we cannot thank Astrid and her staff enough. Charles Young staff go over and beyond at making residents feel at home. Pa has settled in extremely well, he’s thriving and everything you could ever want for your parent is covered. The home looks beautiful, there’s a great warm feeling about the place and Charlies Cafe in particular is Pa’s favourite.
To all the staff at Charles Young a sincere thanks for providing the magnificent home and care to our Dad Piet Winter"
