Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

On a quiet, leafy street in Waipukurau, Woburn is a boutique care centre, offering a choice of standard and premium care rooms.

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.

Woburn is ideally located 2 minutes from the State Highway 2, making it easy for friends and family to pop by or get you out and about.

With shops, cafes and restaurants close by, and the local theatre and bowling club just around the corner, it’s easy for residents to stay connected to the local community.

We don't consider you as "staff" but as extended family.

We can't thank you all enough for the wonderful care and support you all gave, not only to Mum but also to us. Cam

Dear Woburn staff - you have all been stars. Your care, attention and love shown to Doreen was so appreciated as was you always keeping us the family up to date. Mum was very happy at Woburn because of the caring staff. Doreen's family

Woburn Home itself has been built for many years and the outside remains mostly unaltered.

Our new gardener has worked hard on modernising our garden to be more user friendly.

We encourage our rest home residents to stay active. There are regular morning exercises and other activities to encourage wellbeing and follow the "use it or lose it" theory.

Woburn has its own minibus and the activities staff organise outings to all sorts of interesting places.
We have a small but active group of volunteers who help us out when needed.

On Fridays, everyone enjoys their afternoon Happy Hour with lots of singing and dancing, accompanied by a glass of wine, beer or soft beverage.

In our dementia section we have a wonderful spa bath. Residents in the rest home can share it by booking ahead. This is a fairly new initiative but has been welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed by those who have used it.
