At Cantabria, you are at home with us.

Enquire today about our respite care. We offer respite care and day programme to give carers a much-needed break, while at the same time providing residents with care and companionship.

We are a friendly, caring community. Become part of our Cantabria family and be cared for by our wonderful staff, whilst making new friends and learning new activities.

We have a range of levels of care, so if your health needs change, we can care for you now and into the future.

Well-known in Rotorua for ensuring our residents feel that this is ‘their home’, Cantabria is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens just a distance from the town centre where you’ll find all the essentials and more.

At Heritage Lifecare, our homes reflect the residents who choose us, the local communities around us and the people that support and work for us. You are at home with us. Contact us today to talk through your needs.
