Support for the Elderly

Support & Care for the Elderly

“Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.”
Psalm 71:9

Christian ministry to the aged involves caring for each elderly individual as a person created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and as a person for whom Christ cares (Matthew 25:31-46). We at Rosehaven strive to create a nurturing environment within a community that provides meaningful engagement, lasting relationships and enrichment to the lives of those who live, work and serve, recognising the dignity and worth of the aged individual.

 

Our Ethos

We faithfully abide by philosophy that puts our residents at the heart of all we do. To that end, each resident of Rosehaven shall have the right to expect:

  • Opportunities to exercise self determination
  • High quality care and service to meet emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs
  • Respect for personal dignity and privacy
  • An atmosphere conducive to open, honest and fair dialogue
  • A safe and clean environment
  • A spirit of understanding, warmth and affection
  • An atmosphere encouraging companionship and personal relationships
  • Recognition of the contribution residents can continue to make to the community
  • Fair cost effective structures and the exercise of financial responsibility
  • Financial assistance, within the “Care for the Aged Trust’s” ability, if residents funds become exhausted
  • Encouragement to participate in the life of Rosebank Union Church
