Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Kauri Coast Care Home and Hospital is a special place. It's modern, comfortable, sunny and homely with a strong family spirit. You'll be well cared for and soon feel right at home.

Kauri Coast Care Home and Hospital is located at the edge of town with rural views but still only five minutes from Dargaville's services and shops. There's a dairy / cafe just a minutes' walk up the road. Daily bus services to Auckland and Whangarei make it easier for family and friends to visit.

Kauri Coast is part of the New Zealand Aged Care Services Ltd group of rest homes, hospitals, and dementia facilities.
NZACS is one of New Zealand’s leading aged care providers.
