Details
Te Puke Country Lodge Care Home offers personalised rest home, hospital and respite care. Everything about this home is comfortable and homely. Our park-like grounds create beautiful views and lovely spaces for our residents to sit and enjoy the outdoors.

Our goal and commitment to you is to help your loved one live the best life possible, supported physically, emotionally and socially, and to be as independent as possible.

Our wonderful, kind staff take the time to get to know each resident, so that our care can be personalised, respecting each person’s likes, dislikes and preferences. We say “your day – your way”. This means putting each resident in charge of their own day – from when they want to get up, to when and how they like their care. We also make sure there’s plenty of leisure activity and entertainment that they can choose to join in if they wish.

Our residents make their rooms their own – some with photos and ornaments, others with their own curtains, wall hangings and bedspreads.

Friends and family are welcome at any time, and can share a meal, a coffee or some of our entertainment.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Jan Grimmer, our care home manager, on (07) 573 9983, or feel free to drop in at any time. We can also guide you through the steps involved in coming to a care home for the first time.
