Description
Residents always come first at Harbourview Care Home.

Harbourview offers modern, comfortable living with terrific sea views and lots of sunshine. Panoramic views across the motorway to Porirua Harbour mean there's always something to see. We're just a short, easy walk to Aotea Lagoon, with its gardens, picnic areas, birdlife and children's adventure playground. Shops and services are close by.

Harbourview Care Home is part of the Bupa group of rest homes, hospitals, retirement villages and personal medical alarms. We are a private company, and because we have no shareholders, we can invest what we earn to make improvements that help us provide better care.

As part of the global Bupa group, we are able to provide superior clinical support, while focusing on helping each of our residents get the most out of each day. Bupa is one of New Zealand’s leading aged care providers.

Testimonials
Testimonials
Family appreciates very much the care given to my husband - often beyond the 'call of duty' and the communication when Dr has called and also the regular visits the Dr makes.

I would recommend Harbourview to anyone.

On coming in the front door leading to the reception area, you immediately notice the welcoming brightness of the reception area and the friendliness of the staff. The whole atmosphere is lovely.

The wide corridors indoors are very user friendly, also the deck outdoors is a great walking area.

Friendly staff, good activities, home away from home.

The level of caring of residents shows Harbourview to be good to live in.

Friendly staff, caring and helpful. The home is in a beautiful setting, lovely view, gardens, very peaceful.

Very helpful and friendly staff each time I visit my Dad I feel so welcomed and everyone makes my visit enjoyable and Dad is so well cared for. Thank you.
