Description
At Cargill, understanding what you and your family needs is paramount, because that’s the individualised care we want to provide. We know that this means different things for different people, so we take care to involve family and make decisions together.

We like to understand each person’s individual likes and dislikes, so that we can build the care we give and the activities we provide, around your preferences. After all, this is your home the place you should feel comfortable in.

Cargill is set within three acres of flat, landscaped gardens in Waikiwi and is situated close to the bus stop, supermarket, Church and the Waikiwi shopping area, yet away from the busy roads. We have a range of interesting activities that you can choose to join in. However, if you prefer your own company, that’s something we respect.

We pride ourselves on having a very well trained team, who value you as a person and appreciate the wisdom and experience of older people. The care we give is respectful, with a focus on the little things that make a difference.

Please don’t hesitate to visit our care home any time during business hours or contact our Care Home Manager Janet Turner, on (03) 215 8886 or after hours on 027 655 5208.
