Description
Woburn Home is hugely popular. Its relaxed and engaging atmosphere leaves you feeling warm and assured. This well-respected local icon is situated in sought-after Wai-iti Crescent, Lower Hutt.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
Woburn Home, like all Enliven Central homes, embraced an elder directed model of care called the Eden Alternative.

This means we work to ensure the elders of Woburn Home have companionship, variety and spontaneity, fun, meaningful activity and purpose in their lives. It ensures that elders are involved in decisions that relate to both their personal wellbeing and what happens at their home.

Here, residents are supported to maintain their independence and routines, and to continue with hobbies, interests and passions, in a way that’s right for the individual.

OUR PEOPLE
Our staff are not only highly trained, they’re also friendly, caring and embrace our elder-directed philosophy of care.

At Woburn Home, in addition to rest home care we also provide dementia care and hospital level services. This means we have nurses on-duty 24-hours-a-day. The doctor also visits regularly and we are in regular contact to ensure all clinical needs are met.

SERVICES
Enliven’s Woburn Home offers rest home, dementia and hospital level care services, as well as short term respite, health recovery care and an engaging day programme.

FAMILY AND FRIENDS
As an Enliven home we’re proud to be more than just ‘family friendly’. At Woburn Home, your family is part of our family. After all, family, friends and the community play a big part in life here.

At Woburn, you’ll find there are no set visiting times; you can invite your grandchildren, family and friends to visit at any time. Plus we have a great toy box and games to keep the little ones entertained!

You may like to invite family or friends to join in the special events and social outings organised by Woburn Home. And of course, family and friends are always welcome to join you for a meal.
