Description
Kingswood Rest Homes in Matamata and Morrinsville are currently the only Rest Homes in the Matamata-Piako District specialising in the 24-hour care of people who have been assessed as requiring Stage 3 Dementia care.

In Matamata we offer a 25-bed specialist facility to care for people assessed with Stage 3 Dementia. We also offer respite beds, when beds are available, to those who need them. Our brand new Rest Home facility opened in November 2018, offers 16 private bedrooms, some with ensuite bathrooms, as well as an option of a premium room or suite.

In Morrinsville, we offer 28 Dementia beds in two separate pods with their own beautiful, enclosed gardens as well as a brand new, purpose-built rest-home with 16 ensuite rooms. There are lovely patios and gardens and a little café situated in the grounds for daily socialising. Assisted living is also available on our Morrinsville site and we can accomodate 5 people in a serviced house with meals supplied.

Both our Rest Homes, in Matamata and Morrinsville, have four years Certification from the Ministry of Health, which is the maximum certification which can be achieved.

This achievement puts the Kingswood Rest Homes into a small elite group of only 15 Rest Homes in the Waikato, out of 56 which fall under the jurisdiction of the WDHB, currently certified for the maximum of 4 years.
