Description
Kauri Coast Rest Home and Hospital is a special place. It's modern, comfortable, sunny and homely with a strong family spirit. You'll be well cared for and soon feel right at home.

Kauri Coast is located at the edge of town with rural views but still only five minutes from Dargaville's services and shops. There's a dairy just a minutes' walk up the road. Daily bus services to Auckland and Whangarei make it easier for family and friends to visit.

Kauri Coast 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.
