Beachhaven has been an important part of the Beach Haven community for more than 40 years. We are proud of our reputation for providing a homely, nurturing environment. Beachhaven has been awarded "Care Home of the Year" three times.

Beachhaven, on Auckland's North Shore, is just 15 minutes from Auckland city centre and a few minutes from Highbury. It is a purpose-built hospital in a quiet suburban setting. The hospital is light and airy, warm and comfortable with large, sunny lounges. There are decks and safe outdoor areas with attractive, well-maintained gardens.

We are able to provide superior clinical support, while focusing on helping each of our residents get the most out of each day.
We have a team of Carer's, Qualified Nursing staff, Activities assistants and Diversional therapists that are very experienced at caring for residents with Dementia and Challenging Behaviors. Our 2 GP's also have a wealth of experience and knowledge, we have a Physio and Physio assistant on site and link directly to the Mental Health Service for Older Adults and all other services at the DHB

Thank you for taking such good care of my mother, staff have been fantastic, communicating well which has been comforting for me being so far away, the approach to care has clearly been empathetic and kind

We would like to thank everyone at BeachHaven Hospital for the wonderful care our father received whilst living with you, you have some very special people working for you and do an amazing job for residents and their families. The respect and care you give is all anyone could ask at a time when they are unable to care for themselves

Special Features
Special Features
Our service provides care for those who require a high level of support.

The process whereby a resident comes into our care is very important so we have employed a Community Co-ordinator who is a Registered Nurse to manage this. She visits every new resident prior to admission to conduct a thorough needs assessment, explain things to them and their family and to ensure that any important issues are addressed. This way the resident and their families are better prepared for the transfer to our care.
