Ranfurly Residential Care Centre (RRCC) is located at 6 Monmouth Street, Feilding and opened on the 11th December 2013, having relocated from Nelson Street, Feilding, to a new and spacious, purpose-built facility. We have 74 continuing care or hospital level rooms available. Currently we have a few continuing / hospital beds available. Please feel free to contact our Facility Manager, Darren McKean to view these.
In addition to our Hospital level care service, we have 21 specialized Dementia level care beds, for those residents who need to be cared for in a restricted / secure environment with specialist staff (sometimes referred to as stage 3 level care). Our Secure Dementia Centre opened in May 2014 and is very popular. Currently all our Secure Dementia Unit beds are occupied, however please feel free to contact our Safe Care Dementia Unit Team Leader, Lorena Tanner, or our Facility Manager, Darren McKean, and place your name on our waiting list if you wish. Beds within our Safe Care Dementia Unit do become available frequently.
To complement these two levels of care we have internal Residential Care Apartments - these are 'License to Occupy' (LTO) apartments, meaning you purchase the rights to live in that apartment. These rooms are larger than the other continuing care / hospital level care rooms and have a private lounge, en-suite and kitchenette. They are available as singles (one bedroom) or doubles (two bedroom), which suit married couples or partners; siblings or good friends. These are initially purchased either by the family or the individual and have an on-going residential care fee - the same payment required anywhere once an older adult is assessed as needing 24 hour care. This will be paid privately, or via the super and government subsidy (depending on asset thresholds - this is established by WINZ not RRCC staff). Currently we have single internal apartments available for immediate purchase and occupancy. Please feel free to contact our Facility Manager, Darren McKean, or our General Manager, Virginia Dyall-Kalidas to view these.
While RRCC’s main focus is on offering premium residential care services, we are also fortunate to have six Independent Living units (external 'stand alone' LTO units). These are available for purchase to those individuals or couples who want the security of having help nearby, but who are still able to live independently. The people in these units have the option of joining in with the facility activities and meals as required. Currently these are all occupied, however please feel free to contact our Facility Manager,Darren McKean, and place your name on our waiting list if you wish.
