Dementia unit (Kahurangi)

Kahurangi Dementia Unit provides 24/7 short term and long term care for full-time patients in modern, home-like facilities.

Staff provide dementia assessment, support and education.

Kahurangi is a 20 bed facility, 17 of which are dedicated to Aged Residential Hospital Specialised Care residents (however one of these beds acts as a “swing” bed between the ARC and ATR) and 3 dedicated beds to Assessment, treatment and rehab of older persons health. It was a 22 bed facility until some time ago. 2 beds were decommissioned and then repurposed into a Hair Salon and a Chapel.
