Proud regional South Island Aged Advisor finalist for Rest Homes over 40 beds, Rannerdale Veterans Care is a not for profit organisation. We have a special caring relationship with the wider veteran community, including those who have served in the military and / or civillian emergency services as well as their families /dependents. We welcome and accept new residents, both men and women who have not had any association with the veteran community or armed services but are keen to experience our caring ethos of compassion, commitment to caring and integrity in all we do. Our aim is to provide a high standard of both residential high level hospital care including palliative care and rehabilitation care at both rest home and hospital level.
We look forward to hearing from you.
