Respite and Aged Care

Pohlen Hospital has a reputation for providing high quality, hospital level continuing care for older members of our community.

Whilst we are not a rest home, we maintain our certification to provide rest home care in order to care for couples with different levels of assessment or for those people being assessed for the first time and who may wish to transfer to a rest home after assessment.

Assessments are performed by Disability Support Link (DSL), which is the Needs Assessment and Service Co-Ordination Agency for the Waikato.
