Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Ultimate Care Karadean is set in the picturesque rural countryside and still close to Oxford's local shops, cafes and the library. All our large resident rooms and lounges look over the stunning views of Mt Oxford and surrounding hills.

We offer a comfortable home-like environment where residents and staff create a warm, inclusive and friendly community.

Karadean Court is not too large and not too small, so we can maintain a very person-centred approach for all our residents. As well as enjoying a close local bond we keep connected with families and the wider community by operating a transport service for residents to visit Christchurch.
