Make your home at Cantabria Lifecare & Village

When it comes to everyday life, Cantabria makes it easy with village, rest home, hospital, day care, respite and secure dementia care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto lush greenery and come complete with WiFi and a call bell system. Many are furnished with ensuites.

Well-known in Rotorua for ensuring our residents feel that this is ‘their home’, Cantabria is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens just a hop, skip and jump from the town centre where you’ll find all the essentials and more.
We offer everything from physiotherapy, hair salon, health checks, scooter bay and convenience shop. We have a range of recreational activities including a singing group, exercise programmes, arts and crafts, quizzes, and social gatherings. Our facility van and coaches are always on hand for outings.

But don’t just take our word for it, see what our resident Jan has to say ...

A former teacher and Deputy Principal at Rotorua Girls High and one of the first guidance counsellors in New Zealand, Jan came to Cantabria so she could get the care she needed.

She chose Cantabria because ‘you feel as if you’re still part of the community.’ “You can see the trees and the golf course, and it’s easy for my friends to come and take me out.

You’re right in the middle of everything.” Jan says life here is surprisingly busy. “I’ve got a lot of friends, I enjoy the quizzes and I belong to the book club – the library delivers every other Wednesday.”
