With flowers to pick all year round, Waterlea Rest Home is a peaceful and pretty home. It's a place to make new friends and enjoy fun and companionship.

Waterlea has a strong family spirit and offers residents dignity and independence to find personal space and relaxation. Our specialised dementia care unit offers a warm, friendly and family orientated environment with trained staff using humour and positive encouragement during their day.

Waterlea is part of the Bupa group of rest homes, hospitals, retirement villages and personal medical alarms. We are a private company, and because we have no shareholders, we can invest what we earn to make improvements that help us provide better care.

As part of the global Bupa group, we are able to provide superior clinical support, while focusing on helping each of our residents get the most out of each day. Bupa is one of New Zealand’s leading aged care providers.
