Our Care Offering
Known for its homely and friendly atmosphere, Holmwood is a small, boutique rest home in the heart of Rangiora. From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, you’ll quickly feel right at home. There’s always something happening in our main lounge - find a friend to chat to or join in the day’s events. If it’s peace and quiet you crave, relax in the sunny gardens, or settle a comfy chair with the cat in one of our cosy nooks.

We don’t have visiting hours because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. It’s home so friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and catch up. We’re just 2 minutes from town, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes.

Activities Programme
Hop in the van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. A scenic drive to Ashley River or a picnic at Leithfield beach, there’s an exciting new destination each week. Or if it’s music you’re in to, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music. Join in the fun with our neighbours from Southbrook school, or take part in competitive games and theme days, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.

Tender Sunday roasts, hot fish and chips and scrummy homemade puddings… there’s a reason why the dining room is full before dinner! All of the above are regular features on our menu, which is packed with tasty family favourites you’d make at home. You’ll be sure to want second helpings!

Award Winning Care
Great care is what we do, and we’ve got the accolades to prove it. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Oceania has won the Supreme Care Award from the NZ Aged Care Association 3 years in a row. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know too. Because everyone is different all of our residents get a personalised care plan where from meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered. We’ve also got a choice from standard and premium rooms to stunning Care Suites, so no matter your needs or budget, there are plenty of options.

"My Mum came into your care in November. I have nothing but praise for all the wonderful care you gave us all, To all the staff, a million thankyous. Your kindness will not be forgotten."

"I have a colleague whose Mum spent time at Holmwood before she passed away. She often spoke of the little things that the staff at Holmwood did, that not only made a difference to her Mums' time, but also her own peace of mind that her mum was being cared for with genuine respect."

"I will finally sign off and say again thank you so very much for making such a positive difference to all our lives, while Dad resided at Holmwood Rest Home. If all of your residents are treated with the same respect, kindness, empathy and understanding that Dad received then they are very lucky indeed."
