Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Burlington’s stand-alone Dementia care facility is now open.

The single storey, boutique facility (just 20 units) has large care suites and apartments leading out to an interactive internal courtyard and gardens. Circadian lighting adds to the carefully designed complex that has been designed in a domestic style to allow residents to live as independently as possible in a dementia friendly environment.

Burlington’s experienced staff will ensure the very best of lifestyles are catered for in a secure environment.

Qestral Director, Wendy Fleming, CRSNZ (Companion of the Royal Society of New Zealand), was an integral part of the design team and is widely recognised for her work with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. She is Honorary Vice President of Alzheimers Disease International.
