Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

When it comes to everyday life, Rosewood makes it easy with Rest Home, Hospital, Day Programme, Respite, Dementia, Specialised Hospital and Palliative Care. The well-appointed rooms are set in the leafy suburb of Linwood, Christchurch and come complete with a nurse call system and WiFi.

Part of the beautiful riverside City of Christchurch, Rosewood is a short drive from the city centre, where you’ll find all the essentials, including pharmacies, galleries, library and museums.

We offer everything from physiotherapy to podiatry, SKY TV and hairdressing. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, bingo, arts and crafts and RSA visits. Our Care Home van is also always on hand for outings.

We recognise residents are part of a family outside the facility and will endeavour to inform and involve the family members at all times in a team caring approach.

Our residents are cared for in a warm, safe and supportive environment ensuring care, comfort and companionship.
