Description
Bupa is proud to offer rest home, hospital and secure dementia care at Cashmere View Care Home, in south Christchurch, very close to Princess Margaret Hospital.

Cashmere View is known in the local community for our homely atmosphere, and the excellent care provided by our friendly staff. Focusing on making each day the best it can be for your loved one is what’s most important to us. You can rest assured that the quality of our nursing care is very high. We want everyone to feel that Cashmere View is their home – friends and relatives can come and go whenever they like, and are welcome to share meals (for a small charge).

We take the time to get to know each resident, so that our care can be personalised, respecting each person’s likes, dislikes and preferences.

We also have a retirement village on the same site, which can make visiting a spouse easier.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone Sandy Washington our Care Home Manager, or feel free to drop in at any time.

Alternatively, our community liaison coordinator, Sarah (ph 027 273 2113), can help you with all and any information about moving into a care home, and about the choice of Bupa care homes in Christchurch. She’ll even meet you in your own home if you would like.
