Description
Whitianga rest home is known for its beautiful, waterfront location and warm community atmosphere. It’s a place where residents and their families can feel at home and rely on staff for a kind and thoughtful approach. Whether you enjoy socialising or quiet time, how you spend your day is up to you. Find a friend and join in the day’s activities or relax in one of our many cosy nooks.

We don’t have visiting hours because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. It’s home, so friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and a catch up.

Our fantastic activities programme has something for everyone, with exercise initiatives like ‘Upright & Active’ helping residents to improve their strength and mobility and regular visits from schools and local groups to ensure residents remain connected to their community.

Living in the heart of the Coromandel certainly has its benefits, as our van trips are like no other! Enjoy fish and chips on Hot Water Beach, take a walk around the Whitianga Waterways or dip your feet in the sea at Hahei – there’s an exciting new destination every week to explore.

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 want second helpings.

Great care is what we do, and we’ve got the accolades to prove it. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Oceania has won the Supreme Care Award from the NZ Aged Care Association 3 years in a row. 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 where from meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered. We’ve got a variety of different rooms, so no matter your needs or budget, there are plenty of options.

With the beach on your doorstep, simply cross the road for a walk along the shore. The town centre is close by, so it couldn’t be easier to catch up with friends and family for coffee or browse the local shops.
