We encourage you to read our Care overview below – before making an appointment with us.

We also provide handy background resources to support you in navigating the move into care living:


> Rest home care

Rest home care or nursing home care provides you with the support you need with all your daily needs. This could include showering and dressing, cooking and serving meals, helping with medication and following your personal care plan. We also offer a wide range of activities, to make every day comfortable and enjoyable.

> Hospital level care

If your medical or mobility needs are more complex; our nursing and care team are available round the clock, to help follow your care plan and provide you and your family with the reassurance that you’ll be well looked after.


In New Zealand, the funding of care is means tested by the Government. Residents may be eligible for the Ministry of Health’s Residential Care Subsidy, which all Metlifecare care homes accept. The subsidy covers an agreed standard and level of service in the provision of care. Find out more


Many of our care homes offer optional higher specifications than the agreed minimum standards – things such as larger suites, outdoor balconies, heat pumps, and other comforts.

These additional benefits are fully optional and incur a weekly charge called a care accommodation supplement.


We get to know every resident as an individual, understanding their likes, dislikes and preferences, so we can treat them with dignity and respect – always

We develop close relationships with family members, so they stay involved in decision-making for their loved ones. Family members are always welcome and encouraged to celebrate occasions and meals with their loved ones.

Residents have a room of their own and, in most cases, an ensuite bathroom. They have access to a recreation room, hairdressers, dining room and shared kitchen.

Residents have access to 24-hour care and onsite support with a nurse manager and team of registered nurses and trained caregivers.

Local doctors visit our care homes weekly and as needed.

Meals are an important part of the day. We provide nutritious breakfast, lunch, dinner, morning and afternoon tea, which our residents love.

Cleaning and laundry services are provided.


* 96% resident satisfaction with care home staff

* All Metlifecare care homes have the gold standard 3 or 4 year Ministry of Health certification

Residents often move into care homes when their medical, physical and cognitive needs require a greater level of care.

Care homes can have different names – rest homes, residential care homes, or senior home care, for example.

Metlifecare care homes offer the highest level of personal and nursing care to residents, with trained teams of caregivers and registered nurses on hand to offer support 24/7.

Most of our Metlifecare villages have a care home onsite or nearby. If our independent or assisted living residents need to move into a care home, they take priority over people not currently living in a Metlifecare village, helping us to ensure a strong continuum of care for our residents
