Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Well regarded locally, Heretaunga in Silverstream has 18 rest home / Hospital beds.

Residents can benefit from:

- Single storied indoor/outdoor living
- Sunny courtyards
- Sheltered sitting areas with attractive gardens.

In addition, because it was built to specifically be an aged care facility the building has wide, well lit passageways and level access.

Each bedroom is wired for a personal phone and television, and there is plenty of space for personal possessions.

There are plenty of outings and activities for more active residents to get involved with.

Heretaunga is part of the Oceania Healthcare, a member of the New Zealand Aged Care Association.
