Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Boasting an ideal central location, Takanini offers a choice of standard and premium care rooms and is a place where residents and their families truly feel at home.

Your room is your own private space, so you can decorate it with your favourite pictures and ornaments. Standard rooms are large enough for a single bed, a chair and a wardrobe or chest of drawers. The cost of a standard room is included in the Care Services Fee set by the DHB. Premium rooms have additional features such as more space, an ensuite bathroom or outdoor access, but you’ll need to pay an extra amount per day to cover the cost of these premium features.

Takanini is located just off the motorway, and has easy access to public transport, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes. Auckland‘s Southgate Shopping Centre is also close by, should you need to pick up the essentials.
