Elizabeth Knox Home and Hospital is a Charitable Trust with over 100 years of caring for the Auckland community just the way founder Elizabeth Knox envisioned when she left her bequest in 1908.Today, Knox is home to over 200 subsidised and fee-paying private residents.We offer rest home, hospital, young disabled, day and respite cares, carer support, post-operative stays and palliative care.There are distinct differences that set us apart from others though. A decision we made back in 2009 to adopt the Eden Alternative means that we have a different DNA to other care homes.The core concept of the Eden Alternative is simple: Care environments are habitats for people that should promote health, wellbeing and growth rather than facilities where the frail and elderly stagnate and decline.We know life for our residents can be much, much more than may be considered possible elsewhere. There are many small differences at Knox that make a big difference to the lives of residents. Primarily, we’ve challenged the structure of traditional care homes and hospitals. Residents are centralto everything we do.Our care model is a working partnership with residents and families, where we support and enable residents to continue discovering their potential.
