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

Alpine View's forty-seven bed care facility is located just 2km away from Burwood Hospital - Christchurch's main hospital for the elderly.

Set in three and a half acres of land, the care facility has lovely landscaped gardens providing a wonderful environment for residents.

Each bedroom has its own ensuite unit with shower and toilet, telephone jackpoint, LCD TV and radiant ceiling heater (with thermostatic control). An under-floor heating system provides stable and comfortable warmth throughout the facility. Each bedroom and ensuite is equipped with a nurse-call system for immediate communication.

Our dedicated care facility has been structured so that personalised care is continually on hand. Our individual care plans are developed in consultation with the resident, family and whanau... together with our specialized staff and consultants. It is a collaborative approach from a highly professional and friendly staff .
Please come and have a look around at our friendly homely atmosphere , and judge for yourself what a fantastic place it is to start the next chapter of your life
