At Remuera Care Home, we pride ourselves on our welcoming, sociable environment – it’s relaxed and friendly, with plenty to do.

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

Our range of activities and entertainment offers a relaxed opportunity to keep busy, learn new skills and to get to know others. This also includes outings in our van. You can choose to get involved in as much or as little as you like. Some residents prefer to enjoy their own company in their bedroom. We will always respect this choice.

You can be sure of individual attention from our kind staff who understand that little things make a difference. They’ll support you to make the most of life.

We make the effort to understand each person’s likes and dislikes, and we build our care around those, letting their preferences shape their day. That’s why we say, ‘Your day - your way.’
