Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
In the perfect central Silverstream location, Heretaunga is a small, boutique rest home with a big heart. There is a strong, close-knit community where new residents quickly become part of the family.

Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you'll never know where it will take you next. Hot chips at Petone Beach or off to see the sites in Wellington City - there's an exciting new destination every week. Or if it's music you're into, enjoy your own personalised playlist with our award-winning I Love Music programme.

With 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.

Award-Winning Care
Great care is what we do, and we’ve got the accolades to prove it. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Heretaunga was a finalist for 'Best Aged Care Facility' in the 2019 & 2018 Aged Advisor 'People's Choice' Awards. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know too. Because everyone is different, all of our residents get a personalised care plan where from meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered.

What's Nearby
Heretaunga is conveniently located near Eastern Hutt Road, making it easy for friends and family to pop by or get you out and about. We're also close to the Silver stream Shopping Centre, Trentham Racecourse, Silverstream Golf Park, Stokes Valley Cosmopolitan Club and RSA, Trentham Memorial Park and local churches and cafes.
