During the past seven years my mother has been in care at Kohatu Resthome. During this time I have had great peace of mind knowing that my mother is being taken care of in a very professional and caring manner.

The management and staff are very always very approachable - no matter what. They encourage the resident to participate in outings to various places of interest and at times have in-house entertainment provided

The meals are made on the premises and are very nutritious.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Kohatu as a truly caring and homely environment.
