The Ladybug is a 15 bedroom ‘memory assisted lifestyle’ home set on 12 acres of farmland, with an environment specifically designed for females living with dementia.

The Ladybug is owned and managed by the Kumeu Village Family and all staff are all at least Level 4 Dementia trained, as well as being trained by Kumeu Village who operate under the Eden Alternative Philosophy of Care.

A smaller number of people living under one roof makes for a family home where everyone is an individual and can make their own decisions. There is an open kitchen, large bedrooms, access to outdoors, animals (residents can bring their own pets with them), views of rolling hills and space to breathe.
