Description
At Raeburn Lifecare, we believe in providing personable, compassionate, safe, respectful care, adding value to the quality of everyday living. Situated adjacent to the ‘green belt’ in Cambridge, next to open paddocks and rural views. Our gardens are well maintained and we have recently refurbished most of the facility.

Located at 170 Burns Street, Raeburn offers Rest Home, Hospital level and Secure Dementia care. Raeburn’s Health Care Assistants receive significant training as well as a comprehensive annual training covering CPR, First Aid, Health & Safety, Clinical Topics and Dementia and Palliative Care.

We know it is very important to offer choices and to really listen to what our residents and their families want. Recognising the individual needs of our residents and to promote a friendly and comfortable environment is an important part of our philosophy. Respecting the dignity, beliefs and culture of all helps us make each day the best it can be.

Our residents and their families comment on the homely feeling we have created here. We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please contact Nicki Johnson, Business and Care Manager, on (07) 827 4454, or visit our website: https://heritagelifecare.co.nz/listing/raeburn-lifecare/
