Description
Rahiri offers a full range of care, including rest home, hospital and dementia care. What sets Rahiri apart is our wonderful, kind staff, who are determined to put each resident in charge of their own day. We make sure the care we give fits around your preferences, rather than driving your day. That’s why we say “your day – your way.”

Our residents make their rooms their own – some with photos and ornaments, others with their own curtains, wall hangings and bedspreads.

Friends and family are welcome at any time, and can share a meal, a coffee or some of our entertainment – 7 days a week.

We would be delighted to have the opportunity to talk with you about our care. Please phone our Care Home Manager, Tina Broad on (06) 374 4155 or feel free to drop in.
