Our Care offering
Family-friendly is how we’re often described by our residents - and we certainly live up to that reputation! From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, at Elmwood you’ll feel right at home. Our main lounge is a vibrant hub of activity. Follow the music and laughter to find a friend to chat to, or to join in the day’s events. Or if it’s peace and quiet you crave, explore the bountiful gardens, or relax in a comfy chair in one of our many cosy nooks.

We don’t have visiting hours at Elmwood because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. Just like at home, friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and catch up. We’re just around the corner from the Southern Motorway, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes.

Activities Programme
Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. Cuddling kittens at the cat café or hot chips on the ferry to Devonport, there’s an exciting new destination each week. Or if it’s music you’re in to, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music, and keep fit and flexible with Move and Groove. Furry friends, fashion shows, competitive games and theme days, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.

Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings… there’s a reason why the dining room is full before dinner! All of the above are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty family favourites you’d make at home. You’ll be sure to be up for second helpings!

Award Winning Care
Great care is what we do and we’ve got the paper to prove it. Oceania’s won multiple supreme awards from the New Zealand Aged Care Association, so you can be sure you’re in good hands. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know 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. We’ve also got a choice from standard rooms to Care Suites, so no matter your needs or budget, there are plenty of options. Some of our Care Suites can also accomodate a couple.

What's Near By
The stunning Auckland Botanical Gardens are right across the road and are the perfect spot for a Summer ice cream. Close to main roads, it’s easy to get to shops and malls, hospital appointments and some of Auckland’s beautiful beaches.
