Make your home at Hodgson House Lifecare.

When it comes to everyday life, Hodgson House makes it easy with village, rest home, and hospital care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a 24-hour call system, WiFi and ensuites.

Part of the sunny city of Tauranga, Hodgson House is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, just a hop, skip and jump from the Gate Pa shopping centre where you’ll find all the essentials. Just a short drive from there and you’re in the Tauranga city centre.

We offer everything from hairdressing to speech therapy, physiotherapy, and SKY TV. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, happy hour, gardening, crafts, and indoor bowls. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.
