Associate professor Dr Cameron Grant of Auck- land University says 46 youngsters have been admitted to hospital in the Auckland region this year. Babies up until 5 months, and particularly before the age of 2 months are most at risk of whooping cough.'' Dr Grant is also a con- sultant paediatrician at Starship Hospital where more than 100 cases can be seen in peak years. Of the infants admit- ted to Starship with whooping cough, one in 10 will end up in inten- sive care and, of these, one in six will die or be left with brain or lung damage.'' He says parents should immunise their child for whooping cough under the New Zealand Immunisation Schedule at 6 weeks, 3 months and 5 months and then again at 4 and 11 years. Until babies are fully immunised, adults pose the most risk to them. About 70 percent of babies with whooping cough catch the infection from parents or other close family members.'' Whooping cough, also called pertussis, is highly infectious, with each case passing the disease on to 12 to 15 others. Adult immunisation is something that people who visit newborn babies should also think about.'' The number of Auck- landers suspected of con- tracting whooping cough continues to rise. From January 1 to May 25, there were 274 con- firmed or probable cases of the infection. Visit arphs.govt.nz. Pilot scheme for rest home Care home proposal: The Seaside Sanctuary could reopen under a pilot scheme for assisted care. A new model for the care of the elderly is being proposed which would see the former Surfdale rest home Seaside Sanctuary re-opened. The Seaside Charitable Trust, Auckland District Health Board and the Royal District Nursing Service of New Zealand have announced a proposal for a new model of care that would pilot an assisted living concept which involves the elderly liv- ing in a home-like situation. Seaside Sanctuary closed in November 2011 after it was unable to recruit a replacement for nurse manager Pat Orchard who was about to retire. The trust also faced financial diffi- culties because of maintenance and upgrade costs and the fact that funding models did not cater for small facilities. But now the health board will provide funding for this new pilot scheme to be implemented by the Seaside Charitable Trust in conjunction with the board and the district nursing service. Trustee Mrs Orchard says: This means they are mostly caring for themselves and run- ning their own lives but with trained supervision and support on site for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Mrs Orchard says the facility will be for people over 65 who are current Waiheke Island residents or who have strong family connections to the island. It allows elders to remain on the island in a sup- portive yet independent environment,'' she says. Health board planning and funding manager Kate Sladden says the involvement of a com- mitted supporter of the older person is central to the concept. This is expected to generally be a family member who would be required to visit regularly and ensure that the older person's medical needs are met and that they have the means to keep up with the activities that they enjoy. Ms Sladden says to qualify for assisted living, residents must first meet the clinical cri- teria which will be determined by a health board needs assess- ment. The Seaside Charitable Trust and health board plan to implement the assisted living concept pilot scheme at the existing rest home facility in Surfdale. The pilot will establish whether there is a desire for assisted living in the com- munity, whether the com- munity would be prepared to support its implementation, and whether it is a workable model. If successful, the trust will make land available for the con- struction of two houses that will accommodate four elders in each. District nurses will pro- vide supervision and support to the homes and it will work with residents to maintain indepen- dence through restorative homecare that is based on goal setting with the resident and the family. The pilot will be available for suitable candidates from July 2. Call Mrs Orchard on 021 333 088 or Sue Wood on 027 449 0313.
