Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Kingswood Rest Homes in Matamata and Morrinsville are currently the only Rest Homes in the Matamata-Piako District specialising in the 24-hour care of people who have been assessed as requiring Stage 3 Dementia care.

In Matamata we offer a 25-bed specialist facility to care for people assessed with Stage 3 Dementia. We also offer respite beds, when beds are available, to those who need them. Our Rest Home building opened in November 2018 and offers 16 private bedrooms, some with ensuite bathrooms, as well as an option of a premium room or suite.

In Morrinsville, we offer 28 Dementia beds in total, situated in two completely separate buildings with their own grounds.

The first building can accommodate 12 people assessed with dementia in a beautifully restored villa, incorporating a new wing set in a mature, established garden.

The second Dementia wing is a newly established Male Only wing, which accommodates men only. There is a Men’s Shed, a Potting Shed, a Chicken Run and a Vege Garden, which will keep the blokes busy. Daily activities are offered around our male Residents’ own particular interests and their past hobbies.

Our modern Rest Home building has 16 single bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms, offering Rest Home and hospital level of care. There are lovely patios and gardens and a little café situated in the grounds for daily socialising. Assisted living facilities are also available at our Morrinsville site and we can accommodate up to nine people in two serviced houses with meals and cleaning supplied.

In May 2022, a brand new, purpose built, 30-bedroom Specialised Psychogeriatric wing opened adjacent to our Rest Home building. This has come about as a result of an increasing need in the Waikato to provide quality of life for an older patient with significant psychiatric or behavioural disturbance.

Separate living rooms, courtyards and garden areas allow residents to break away to a place of comfort or quiet when they need to.

We are passionate about what we do and we are proud of the ongoing achievement of the maximum certification achievable from HealthCert each time we are audited.
