Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
The Oaks offers a choice of standard and premium care rooms, including Care Suites.

Your room is your own private space, so you can decorate it with your favourite pictures and ornaments. Standard rooms are large enough for a single bed, a chair and a wardrobe or chest of drawers. The cost of a standard room is included in the Care Services Fee set by the DHB. Premium rooms have additional features such as more space, an ensuite bathroom or outdoor access, but you’ll need to pay an extra amount per day to cover the cost of these premium features.

The Oaks is conveniently located on Main South Road, making it easy for friends and family to pop by or get you out and about.

Many of our residents are active in the local community – enjoying social activities at clubs and societies like they’ve always done. The Oaks is handy to shops and public transport, which makes getting out and about a breeze.

Special Features
Special Features
Our goal is to provide a quality environment in which each older person in our care feels secure, retains their independence and is supported by staff committed to their well being.

Some of the features of the purpose-designed building are the wider doors, larger bedrooms with fittings for television and telephones, spacious wardrobes and sound proofing. There is plenty of living space as we have 4 lounges and numerous sitting alcoves, all of which have a different outlook and different furnishings. This means residents can have a changing outlook each day, which adds interest and variety.

Our award winning gardens are flourishing with a wide range of plants providing colour all year round. There is plenty of outdoor seating allowing sunny spots to sit. Sheltered courtyards give garden views to internal rooms, with many rooms have sliding doors to access their own private piece of the garden.
