Ranfurly is an award winning care facility. In October 2014, Ranfurly was the winner of two excellence in care awards, from the New Zealand Aged Care Association. Ranfurly won the “Excellence in Food Award” and also the supreme “Overall Excellence in Aged Care Award”.

“The Ranfurly Hospital facilities are absolutely 5-Star in all aspects. The rooms have their own ensuite and television, and you have the choice to eat in your room, or the dining room. There is incredible variety of meals each month, you get a weekly menu with 2-3 choices of meal for both lunch and dinner complete with soup and desert as well as fresh fruit. There are also a variety of different options for entertainment to enjoy each day. The tender and loving care by the management, physio, nurses and general staff is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble for them. They are always professional and call all residents by their name. Even very difficult patients they handle with true professionalism in every way. After my 6 week stay for rehab, having been involved with many retirement homes and hospitals, I believe that you won’t be able to find a better option than Ranfurly Hospital.” - Geoff Asher, Vietnam Veteran

Check out our Food service video via the link on our Hospital page.

Our staff give excellent care in an environment that is built around a resident centred hospitality model. Nothing is too much trouble for our staff. Residents live in beautiful surroundings that support individuality, personal choice and independence.

We serve restaurant quality food that is prepared daily. The residents are provided with a range of delicious menu options and choose their own meals on tablets that are loaded with our tantalising pictorial menus.

Residents enjoy frequents outings in our brand new Mercedes Van. You may have seen Ranfurly residents enjoying coffee in a café, or at the theatre, or the Ellerslie races, or even in the park feeding the ducks.

We would love to be of service to you. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about the care services we offer or about Ranfurly Retirement Village.

"I love that I can hold my head up and boast about where my father lives, when so many of my generation really struggle with where their parents are."

"Yesterday I was lucky enough to be able to assist with an outing to the Ellerslie Races with some of the Ranfurly residents.
I would like to pass on observations/comments to those that organised this excellent day out.

We had an amazing viewpoint for the racing and residents did not have far to walk to place a bet. People enjoyed a meal along with a beverage whilst soaking up the atmosphere. I engaged with people who talked about their time at the races in years gone by and noting the differences of today. I would like to say that one resident expressed to me that "this has been one of the best outings I have been on".
The genuine enthusiasm from all was palpable, so much so that people did not wish to return as per the schedule.
Laughter that was enjoyed by all was for me the highlight of the day, please pass on my thanks to Anastasiya/Savitri for a well planned and thoroughly enjoyable day and I look forward to being of assistance anytime in the future."

Kind regards

"Ranfurly Village provides a caring environment for my Mother. The staff are wonderful and the beautiful facilities are designed with the older person in mind. I can’t think of a better home."

“I work in palliative care and I recently accompanied my dear friends granddaughter to visit him at Ranfurly Hospital. We were greeted warmly and given the appropriate details of his care plan in a very professional manner. It was obvious to us that John was being exceptionally well cared for and kept very comfortable.”

“I visit Ranfurly Hospital regularly to spend time with my husband. I have never once worried about his care, the staff are exceptional and go to great measures to make sure that he is well looked after.”

“It is great to know that there is the option of clinical care on site at Ranfurly. My husband recently had to move to the hospital and was in palliative care, the staff were wonderful and it was so easy to visit him. I also needed to spend some time in respite care at the Hospital and experienced the exceptional care first hand. It gives me peace of mind to know that when I do need help I don't have to move away from Ranfurly Village and that I can relocate to the hospital and enjoy the beautiful surroundings there.”
