Description
Our charming care home is set in a central area of Timaru. We have a tranquil sunny garden setting, set back off the street.

Residents and their families are our focus when providing quality care in a comfortable, safe and stimulating environment.Making decisions together is a very important part of our philosophy.

We often receive compliments from our residents and their families about the kindness of our staff, and the “little extras” that they so willingly do. As the manager I have a restorative focus, keeping our residents as independent as possible and nurturing their interests such as gardening and other activities that have been I important throughout their life.
Our residents are loving the van outtings, getting out into the countryside and enjoying walks and picnics.



We would be delighted to have you contact Trish Dovestone our Care Home Manager, or feel free to drop in at any time .
