Description
Our specially trained staff provide constant supervision, person centred care and support for all residents.

Gardenview Care Home is sensitively designed to make it an uncomplicated, calming environment with touches ranging from gentle music to special signage. We have secure outdoor areas for residents to enjoy the lovely gardens. The public gardens across the road have a scented garden and staff often take residents walking there.

Gardenview is part of the Bupa group of rest homes, hospitals, retirement villages and personal medical alarms. We are a private company, and because we have no shareholders, we can invest what we earn to make improvements that help us provide better care.

As part of the global Bupa group, we are able to provide superior clinical support, while focusing on helping each of our residents get the most out of each day. Bupa is one of New Zealand’s leading aged care providers.

Testimonials
Testimonials
The caring attentiveness, individuality, welcome and kindness to mum and other residents is excellent.

Lovely home, well cleaned and good Staff.

There is no room for doubt about the sincerity, extraordinary talent and compassion of all staff at Gardenview Levin. It is a delight to behold. No forced or pretentious contact with patients, but a genuine concern to make sure all are happy, content and receiving such love and attention that usually only family can give to one of their own.

Gardenview can feel very proud of the very special people on their staff list. Perhaps on a personal level the greatest compliment I can offer is to say that I could not wish for a finer bunch of people to tend to the needs of my dear wife-Dawn. It is easy to say thanks to staff during the day but maybe this email will better reinforce just how much their efforts are appreciated.

Many Thanks.


Lovely Atmosphere.

I appreciate living in “Care” as opposed to living alone.

Staff are very kind.
