Making the most of its spot in the sun, the facilities at Awatere are flooded with natural light, making it feel warm, fresh and inviting. There are plenty of comfortable nooks to enjoy – soak in the sun in the stunning courtyard, find a friend for a chat in the lounge or curl up with a book in the library. Nestled near Milne Park and the banks of the Waikato River, you can enjoy that perfect balance of city and suburban living. Handy to highways and arterial routes, and with public transport outside the gate, it’s a breeze for friends and family to visit, or to take you out to local shopping centres or eateries.
Care Suites provide both Rest Home and Hospital level care, which means you can relax knowing you won’t have the upheaval of moving again if your needs increase. Choose from either a studio Care Suite with an open-plan bedroom and lounge, or a one-bedroom Care Suite with a separate bedroom and living area. Some Care Suites are large enough to accommodate couples, so you can be together – even if one of you requires Hospital level care. All Care Suites have a heat pump and full en-suite bathroom, as well as a kitchenette with a fridge and a kettle – perfect for making a cuppa when friends and family come to visit. We also have options with private balconies and/or patios.
Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings…there’s a reason why the dining room is full before dinner! All of the above are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty family favourites you’d make at home. You’ll be sure to want second helpings! Good food is best shared, and family and friends are welcome to come dine with you. Enjoy a barista coffee and a bite to eat from the onsite café or book in for a meal in the main or private dining room. Oceania has Australasia's first and only certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition. This means we are committed to ensuring our residents are getting the best possible nutrition from each and every meal.
It’s easy to fill your day. Your Guest Services Manager will get to know you to find out how you like to spend your time, so that they can help you fill your day with the things you love to do. Whether it’s something as simple as video chatting with family overseas or something that requires a bit more organisation like meeting up with some friends at a show – either way, you can relax and let us take care of the logistics. Our activities calendar is packed with a variety of group and solo pursuits, so you can choose what you feel like doing. Hop in our van to explore an exciting new destination each week or enjoy some me-time listening to your own personalised playlist with our award-winning I Love Music programme.

The Ministry of Health conducts regular audits of Residential Care Facilities. They can be found HERE.
NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.
In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
