This award is a reflection and a testament to the tireless work that the Fraser Sanderson, Diane Rodger & Ruth Thomas put into building the Bay of Plenty’s first purpose built dementia care unit. ‘ We always knew we had something very special, but this award reaffirms this unique facility really is among the best dementia care units in New Zealand’ say Diane Rodger, General Manager of Care Services. We’re all extremely proud of this achievement and to be receiving accolades like this at a national level is something that we’re all extremely proud of.
The judges acknowledged the research undertaken prior to the development beginning. It was evident there was a large amount of time spent researching the needs of our future residents, the needs of the local community and how a purpose built dementia care facility will best assist residents. Having such a uniquely designed building allows residents suffering from progressive brain failure to live a life with reduced anxiety, and a greater enjoyment of life which is what Bethlehem Views aims to achieve.

Black and White Mid Winters Christmas
The highlight of last month was the Glitz & Glam mid-winter ball at Bethlehem Views Rest Home & Dementia Care Facility. The ball was attended by more than 100 rest home residents, family of rest home residents and Sanderson Group staff. The ball gave residents the opportunity to share something special with their families, to celebrate life and most importantly, have fun.
The scene was set with a brightly lit Christmas tree, fabulous decorations throughout the foyer and dining room, festive music and staff dressed in their finest ball attire. Event organisers arranged Joy Adams, Country Music singer to come in and perform for the evening.
Her voice and ability to engage with all the guests was simply amazing. The dance floor was full throughout the night as everyone enjoyed dancing to Joy’s popular music and it was a real thrill to hear everyone singing along to well-known hits.
Fraser Sanderson, Sanderson Group Chairman attended ball and said ‘The compassion I saw with the interaction between staff and residents warmed my heart.’ He’s immensely proud of what has been achieved at the Bethlehem Views & Dementia Care facility and contributes the success of the care facility to genuine compassion and love our staff have for the residents.
Sue and her team of organisers did an absolutely magnificent job organising this special event and it’s a true testament to the genuine care the staff have for their residents and the sense of community within Bethlehem Views. Sue hopes this will become an annual event and already has her sights set on the end of year Christmas Ball.
