Level 4 Restrictions - critical visitors only
Awatere offers options for aged care with luxury Care Suites providing Rest Home and Hospital care.

Making the most of its spot in the sun, the new facilities at Awatere are flooded with natural light, making it feel warm, fresh and inviting. There are plenty of comfortable nooks to enjoy – soak in the sun in the stunning courtyard, find a friend for a chat in the lounge or curl up with a book in the library.

Awatere offers the following levels of care:
- Rest Home
- Hospital
- Palliative/End-of-Life

Nestled near Milne Park and the banks of the Waikato River, you can enjoy that perfect balance of city and suburban living.

Handy to highways and arterial routes, and with public transport outside the gate, it’s a breeze for friends and family to visit, or to take you out to local shopping centres or eateries.

Oceania is a leading provider of premium healthcare services in New Zealand. With over 40 locations across the country, we’ve been part of local communities for over 50 years. We’re recognised as industry leaders in care, winning awards for innovation, food, staff training and community engagement.

When it comes to your care, you know what you like and what you don’t like – and we want to know your preferences too. Because everyone is different, all of our residents get a personalised care plan, so from meals to medications; everything that’s important to you is covered.
