Make your home at Cargill Lifecare

When it comes to everyday life, Cargill makes it easy with village, rest home, and respite care. The well-appointed rooms all look out onto sheltered courtyards or landscaped gardens and come complete with a 24-hour call system, WiFi and ensuites.

Part of the close-knit Invercargill community, Cargill is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, just a hop, skip and jump from the Waikiki shopping centre, where you’ll find all the essentials including a bank and pharmacy. Just a few minutes from there and you’re in the heart of Invercargill.

We offer everything from podiatry to hairdressing, dietary advice and SKY TV. We have a range of recreational activities including happy hour, board games, visits from K9 friends, indoor bowls and free sports sweepstakes. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.
