Description
BOUTIQUE, HOSPITAL LEVEL CARE IS ON THE RISE.

They say that “good things come in small packages” and this is true at Remuera Rise aged residential Care Facility. With only 12 beds we are boutique.

You, or your loved ones, will receive 24/7 hospital level care that’s personalised to your individual needs. You can start your day, eat, bathe, and retire when you want. You don’t need to fit into our routines - we fit into yours!

We can do this because we have one of the highest staff-to-resident ratios in New Zealand. A Registered Nurse is on duty 24 hours a day and all staff are personally committed to delivering professional, emotional and social support to every resident.

MEET Jennifer Ibanez, OUR CLINICAL MANAGER.

Have a look at the photos above and be sure to click on the video tab to hear Clinical Manager, Jennifer Ibanez, talk about the Facility. You can also click on the downloads tab to view a brochure and share with your loved ones.

But the best thing to do is just call Jennifer on 0800 00 15 85 to come and have a look around.

What everyone loves is the size of the room, the modern fittings and having access to an ensuite. Each room is tastefully decorated and we encourage you to bring your own furnishing and favourite bits and bobs to create that ‘home away from home’ personal touch.

A sunny, modern lounge provides a central hub for socialising with other residents with activities like daily newspaper reading, exercise classes, films, games, arts and crafts and even Happy Hour. The nearby Domain Wintergardens, cafes, shops and art galleries provide plenty of scope for interesting outings with family and friends.

ENJOY EXQUISITE MEALS WHICH ARE RESTAURANT QUALITY.

One of the highlights of our Care Facility are mealtimes. We have one of the finest chefs working for us so the menu is constantly changing and we use the freshest of ingredients.

Whether enjoyed privately or with new friends, meals are an event with each nutritious dish prepared lovingly and to taste. Enjoy favourites such as bacon-wrapped chicken breasts served with a creamy garlic sauce, roasted potatoes and fresh beans, followed by cinnamon apple pie served with a vanilla bean ice-cream.

And of course you can always go out and sample the local cuisine that Newmarket has to offer!
