Quality of life
Amongst the local Avonside/Linwood community, Holdsworth House Rest Home at Fitzgerald Retirement Living is set around a stunning courtyard of raised garden beds with it’s own young grape vine. 30 residents enjoy a choice of accommodation, from standard bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities to premium bed-sitting rooms with ensuite bathrooms and excellent nursing care.
We recognise the importance of maintaining as much independence as possible and we encourage you to share any suggestions or concerns with the running of our home. You’re welcome to bring along special pieces of furniture and personal favourites to make the place feel and look as comfortable as you want.
Family & friends
Family and friends are welcome anytime. You choose how much company or privacy you prefer and if you like to entertain in your room or in one of our many communal lounges.
Our fantastic cooks offer two choices of main meal daily for lunch and dinner and cater to all dietary requirements. It’s always possible to take your breakfast, morning/afternoon tea and supper in your room if you prefer but we do encourage you to share meals in our newly refurbished dining room.
Activities and outings
Our varied activity programme includes regular outings in and around Christchurch, newspaper reading, housie, quizzes and happy hour. We have strong links with our neighbour, The Holy Trinity Church, Avonside with whom we share Chaplain services. You can make appointments with our on-site hair salon and visiting podiatrist.
