The wonderful team of staff are always giving their love,care support and empathy to all your Residents. The Beacon

To the very special people who care for Gaie. Thank you.
I have spent alot of times in Rest Homes over the last 10 years and not one comes close to the buoyant and fun atmosphere you have at OBC.
It is such a relief to have found you and to know that Mum is cared for with such kindness and compassion. It is also a delight to watch you sing when there is agitation, hug when there are tears and dance when there is melancholy.
With huge gratitude to all the staff at OBC.
Thank you so sincerely for all your love and care given to us. This helped us to cope better with the changes in my husband and also with his permanent departure.
I have been around a lot of Rest Homes and talked to many people in the Whakatane area and i have not heard one sad or bad thing about Ohope beach Care, that says alot!
Ohope Beach Care has just a wonderful feel, i guess its that warm gut feeling that it is a home of happiness.
Finally Ohope beach Care is being recognized as a clinically safe , friendly and happy home for our Aged with Dementia.
Not only are there aged care here but cats, dogs, children, wonderful community volunteers and music every day
We are so proud of Ohope Beach Care in keeping all our loved ones safe during the Covid pandemic....thank you
Dad loved your companionship and so enjoyed the many sing a long sessions.
Dad was always very happy in your care. Wonderful memories for us.
Our happy place where you find singing, dancing and laughter daily.
