Special Features
Ross Home is an integral part of Dunedin's North East Valley and 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, and Ross Cafe, just inside the main doors to the attractive premises, is a popular place to catch up with family and friends.

All Enliven residences have a policy of valuing the lives of older people, and this is reflected in the many services and facilities offered.

Ross Home 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.

Interests & Activities

Maintaining regular sporting and community activity our individual residents had before moving to Ross, 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.
