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

Away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland, Maygrove is set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens, just a hop, skip and jump from the Orewa shopping centre where you’ll find all the essentials.

We offer everything from hairdressing to speech therapy, physiotherapy, and SKY TV. We have a range of recreational activities including board games, happy hour, gardening, crafts, pet therapy and indoor bowls. Our facility van is also always on hand for outings.
