Our mission is to make life great every day for our residents, by providing top quality accredited care for the elderly and individuals in need of care. We promote a homely atmosphere of respect, dignity, and independence.

We provide a continuum of care from Rest Home care through to our contemporary purpose-built Hospital and Memory Unit. We also provide care services for WDHB Respite, Carer Support, Private Short-Term Care and Day Stay Residents.

We promote and encourage the independence of residents and involvement of family and community, which helps our residents to have a positive living environment and to stay connected. The facility bus and small appointments vehicle make travelling out for activities, sightseeing or getting to appointments accessible.

Rooms are comfortable, contemporary and some boast idyllic rural views. Hospital rooms are available with en-suites including shower and toilet amenities and wall mounted TV's. All our rooms have no additional or premium room charges.
