Description
Welcome to the new Bupa Foxbridge Care Home, located next to the Te Rapa Racecourse and Minogue Park. Foxbridge care home includes 85 beds across three floors with a mix of rest home, hospital and dementia levels of care. This is expected to open in late January 2021.

Our modern and comfortable care home will have a range of different room types for your comfort, including your own private ensuite.

During the day you can take part in our activities, enjoy our landscaped gardens with a cup of tea, relax in one of our lounges, or spend time with family and friends in our Whanau room.

If secure care is needed, we have two small dementia units with quiet lounges and separate gardens.
