Kemp Home & Hospital

An 81-bed facility offering both rest home and hospital level care, for residents who require permanent or short-term care.

How the Mission helps older people
Located in Titahi Bay, Kemp Home & Hospital is an excellent residential care option for seniors. It’s an 81-bed facility, offering both rest home and hospital-level care, for people who require permanent or short-term care. Residents have access to a physiotherapist, podiatrist, dietician, and hairdresser, and are served nutritious home-style meals to suit all dietary needs. Both home and hospital are independently audited to ensure compliance with NZ Health and Disability Services Standards.

What happens at Kemp Home & Hospital
While we acknowledge the importance of supporting the physical needs of residents so they can gain maximum fulfilment from life for as long as they are able, a holistic approach to care and support is essential. A person’s social, cultural and spiritual well-being are all part of their care at Kemp. In-house activities run six days a week, including themed days throughout the year. There are also resident social groups. In line with The Mission’s Christian values, St. Nicholas Chapel is on site, with a dedicated Chaplain to provide spiritual support and pastoral care.

We encourage residents to maintain links with whanau and community, and welcome whanau participation in our events. We have open visiting hours and hold monthly community support group meetings on site. It’s also critical that the environment encourages residents to make meaningful choices – including their clothing, the layout and contents of their rooms, and participation in healthcare decisions. Regular resident and wha¯nau meetings mean people get a say in the place they call home.

Looking forward
Kemp Home & Hospital’s environment enables many of its residents to be as independent as they can, and achieve a lifestyle that would not be possible without a level of support.
