Winner: 2019 Trusted Brand Aged Care & Retirement Villages

Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village is named after New Zealand's most acclaimed opera singer. Located off Potae Avenue in Riverdale, Gisborne the village is conveniently located close to the Lytton West shops including medical centre, and superettte, close to Gisborne hospital, and with a beautiful rural outlook with coastal and mountain views.

Our care centres offer purpose-built dementia care facilities that provide a secure haven in a warm and homely environment for people with dementia and wandering issues.

Our dementia care units incorporate many unique design features to help residents find their way around – such as interesting wall decals and textural wall fittings. On each resident's door, a memory box has been fitted containing special possessions that help them recognise their room.

The open plan dining rooms and lounge areas encourage freedom of movement. Our residents can also walk around our specially designed secure outdoor courtyards and garden areas.

We have an exceptional activities programme for residents in dementia care. There are dedicated lounge carers plus activities staff 7 days a week. The programme supports all degrees of physical and mental dependency and has a positive impact on our residents’ quality of life.

Our centrally located nurse station and closed-circuit monitoring system ensures care staff can non-intrusively watch over residents while preserving their dignity.
