These are the values and principles that will inform and govern the behaviour of all who work for Sprott House Trust and are the way things are done here.

We are committed to:

  • Care: We strive to ensure all residents get the highest standard of care we can give across all levels of care we offer.

  • A resident and family focus: We understand and meet the needs of our residents and design our services with them in mind. We will ensure the residents and their families/whānau are involved in decisions about resident care. We have systems in place to enable residents and their families to participate in care planning and review.

We strive for innovation and improvement. We actively work to be respected as a high performing facility. The quality and professionalism of the staff is respected and supported and a learning environment is nurtured.
  • Working together: We will listen and work collaboratively with our colleagues, residents, their families/whānau, medical and allied health providers, our suppliers and contractors to create vibrant and effective teams.
