Papatoetoe Residential Care, formerly known as Papatoetoe Private Hospital, is almost a 'heritage' building in old Papatoetoe having served the community for many decades. Nestled in on the corner of Wallace & Fairview Roads, extensive renovations have given the given the building a modern facelift & newly refurbished rooms within. Large decks afford residents a grand view off the main lounge and over a hidden (secret) garden area.
We are proudly multi-cultural offering hospital level care to everyone in our community.
We have 24/7 Registered Nurses, generous staffing levels and cooks who cater to a wide range of food preference.
Long stay, short stay or respite, all room rates are the same (minimum as recommended by MOH) without 'additional charges'.
Some rooms enjoy their own balconies, all have wash facilities, we currently have two double room suitable for couples.

Interests & Activities
Interests & Activities
Activities are planned individually and linked to resident own goals. Outings are not just for the more able so transport often includes lots of wheelchairs. Our physio and activities coordinator offer activities that help with maintaining strength while promoting mobility as well as simply having a good time. Some guests need a quiet place when they are unwell & we have a wing dedicated to their interests as well. Our Spotify Internet music system can bring anyone their favourite music no matter what it is.
