Special Features
Special Features
Kena Kena is a friendly resthome with a very homely atmosphere

It is owned and operated by 2 registered nurses, who have run the rest home for over 24 years and between them have over 70 years nursing experience.
We have a very dedicated team of workers, including great cooks who prepare fresh food daily.
We have a wing of 9 studio units which are all certified Rest Home beds.
These units allow resident's to receive full rest home level of care but give the feeling of maintaining some independence.
They have a full disability en-suite and a small kitchenette and much larger room.
They are a great transition from coming from a larger house.
