At Broadview, you are at home with us.

We are a friendly, caring community. Become part of our Broadview family and be cared for by our wonderful staff, whilst making new friends and learning new activities.

We have a range of levels of care, so if your health needs change, we can care for you now and into the future.

On the outskirts of Whanganui, Broadview is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, with a aviary and two sheep in our paddock. With a lovely rural setting, Broadview is just a short drive from the town centre, where you’ll find all the essentials including a pharmacy and library.

At Heritage Lifecare, our homes reflect the residents who choose us, the local communities around us and the people that support and work for us. You are at home with us. Contact us today to talk through your needs.
