Bupa is proud to offer rest home and hospital care at Sunset, in the heart of Blockhouse Bay.

Focusing on making each day the best it can be for your loved one is what’s most important to us. Our kind staff take the time to get to know them, so that our care can be personalised, respecting their likes, dislikes and preferences. We welcome friends and family at any time, and they are welcome to share meals (for a small charge).

We often receive compliments from our residents and their families about the kindness of our staff, and the “little extras” that they so willingly do. Our residents also compliment us on the lovely food our chef makes. We have open plan living and dining, leading to attractive gardens. There are plenty of spacious communal areas and cosy nooks to enjoy.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Pauline Mellor, our Care Home Manager, or feel free to drop in at any time.
