Encouraging residents to be as independent as possible; to make choices in the things that matter to them, is part and parcel of Presbyterian Support Otago's Enliven services.

Here at Iona you will find some things make for happier, healthier living, no matter what your age. A sense of community; friends, family and whanau; giving and receiving; making decisions for yourself; and most of all, practical support when you need it.

At Enliven we work alongside you and your family to achieve these things.

Iona carries Ministry of Health four-year certification - confirming this popular home provides the very best care to residents.

Give Iona's Manager, Stephenie Leith, a call on 03 437 1870 and come as see for yourself why an Enliven home is the right choice when seeking rest home, hospital, dementia and independent living options.

Special Features
Iona is an integral part of the Oamaru community and is a highly sought-after home for older people seeking residential care.

The exceedingly high standard of meals is always commented on by residents and visitors alike, as is the friendliness of the staff and volunteers.

Iona is purpose-built and maintained to a high level, and residents have plenty of room in which to enjoy the wide range of activities continually available to them.

Updated: 25 May 2016
Interests & Activities
Maintaining regular social and community activity our individual residents had before moving to Iona, is encouraged. We believe residents should maintain the connection they had with their family, friends and community, and will do all we can to ensure those connections are kept.

In-house, we have an extensive activities programme that includes exercise, quiz sessions, newspaper readings, guest speakers and entertainers, and Happy Hour is a very popular event.

There is great emphasis on outings, undertaken in comfortable vans, with events ranging from concerts to garden visits.

Some residents prefer to undertake hobbies and interests privately, or on a one-to-one basis, and we are happy to accommodate them
