Description
We are immensely proud to welcome you to Craigweil House Home and Hospital. Our unique boutique facility boasts a relaxed family feel and is situated on the Twin Coast Discovery, off state Highway 16, within reach of Muriwai Beach and the Kaipara Coast.

We are situated directly opposite the Parakai geothermal pools, which for many of our residents, families and visitors is a great place for a dip in the relaxing and healing mineral waters.

Our mission is to make life great every day for our residents, by providing top quality accredited care for the elderly and individuals in need of care. We promote a homely atmosphere of respect, dignity, and independence.

We provide a continuum of care from Rest Home care through to our contemporary purpose-built Hospital and Memory Unit. We also provide care services for WDHB Respite, Carer Support, Private Short-Term Care and Day Stay Residents.

Our compassionate care team consists of nursing staff that are onsite 24 hours a day. We promote and encourage the independence of residents and involvement of family and community, which helps our residents to have a positive living environment and to stay connected. The facility bus and small appointments vehicle make travelling out for activities, sightseeing or getting to appointments accessible.

Rooms are comfortable, contemporary and some boast idyllic rural views. Hospital rooms are available with en-suites including shower and toilet amenities and wall mounted TV's. All our rooms have no additional or premium room charges.

Please call us today to request an info pack through this site or arrange a viewing.
