Raeburn is situated adjacent to the ‘green belt’ in Cambridge, next to open paddocks and rural views. Our gardens are well maintained and we have recently refurbished most of the facility, bringing it up to the ‘homely hotel’ standard that is unique to Oceania.

Raeburn’s Health Care Assistants receive significant training through the Oceania Residential Care Course as well as a comprehensive annual training program covering CPR, First Aid, Health & Safety, Clinical Topics and Dementia and Palliative Care.

Good food is an important part of anyone’s quality of life and the people who live here enjoy home-style main meals from a menu designed by Oceania’s Dietitian.

In addition:

- We have a varied activities programme.

- We offer access to physiotherapists, podiatrists, hairdresser and clinical nurse specialists.

- All of our beds have the option of DHB funding available on them (if you are eligible for a care subsidy)

Located at 170 Burns Street, Raeburn offers Rest Home, Hospital level and Secure Dementia care.

To find out more, please contact Cushla Wolland , Facility Manager, on (07) 827 4454.
