Additional Information
Additional Information
Details re Meals All our meals are cooked on the premises by our two very competent cooks one of our cooks has been with us for many years and cooks the older style meal whereas our other cook is younger and uses a lot of flavours in her meals which is very popular as well. The Manager has resthome cooking experience and sometimes you will see her cooking.
Staffing Details Our Staff turnover is low and many staff members have been here a long time. The Manager can cover all shifts if need be. This gives her an insight into how things are being run and if there is any need for any changes to be made.
Associated Complexes We are associated with Rawhiti resthome in Matamata and Craigwell in Parakai. These two homes are both owned by the same person.
Fees Details/Fees Do Not Include Our fees are governed by the BOPDHB and the Ministry Of Health
