Ultimate Care Ranburn is well established in our close community here in Waipu. We offer specialist dementia care, within a peaceful, safe and comforting environment. We work in partnership with residents and their family's to provide personal tailormade care plans for our residents.

We believe the most important factor for our residents is to assist them to live a full quality life, in a warm, friendly and family-oriented environment, one that respects and celebrates their individuality and life.

Caring for someone with dementia can be very challenging, we are here to support residents and their families.
