Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

In the perfect location just a few minutes from the Lake, St Johns Wood is an attractive rest home with a warm community feel. From the staff who greet you in the hallways, to the fresh and inviting living spaces, at St Johns Wood you’ll feel right at home. There’s always something happening in our main lounge - find a friend to chat to or join in the day’s events. If it’s peace and quiet you crave, relax in the sunny courtyard, or find a comfy chair in one of our many cosy nooks.

We don’t have visiting hours at St Johns Wood because we know it’s important you stay connected to your community. It’s home so friends and family can join you anytime for a cuppa and catch up. We’re just 5 minutes from the town centre, so it’s a breeze for visitors to pop in, or get you out and about to local shops and cafes.

Hop in the village van for a jaunt, you’ll never know where it will take you next. A scenic drive or hot chips at the beach, there’s an exciting new destination each week. Or if it’s music you’re in to, enjoy your own personalised playlist with I Love Music. Join in the fun with our award-winning “Grandfriends” programme, or take part in competitive games and theme days, there’s something for everyone no matter what you’re interested in.

Great care is what we do, and we’ve got the accolades to prove it. You can be sure you’re in good hands. Oceania has won the Supreme Care Award from the NZ Aged Care Association 3 years in a row. When it comes to your care, you know what you like and don’t like - and we want to know too. Because everyone is different all of our residents get a personalised care plan where from meals to medications, everything that’s important to you is covered. We’ve also got a choice from standard rooms to stunning Care Suites, so no matter your needs or budget, there are plenty of options.

Everything you need is close by, including doctors surgery, chemists, post office, banks, movie theatre, supermarket, library, cafés and restaurants. We’re also handy to the Cosmopolitan Club, Taupo lake front (only two blocks away) and a number of churches.

At St Johns Wood staff are using the Connect programme which is used Oceania wide and demonstrates values of passion, respect and to deliver excellence. It keeps residents in contact with the wider community, and we encourage excellence in all we do. It gives residents hope of keeping mobile and exercising to reach their goals.

We also have Nineteen Specialised Care Suites and one Care Studio within our Rest Home/Hospital facility which are License to Occupy Units to which we provide either full rest home or hospital level care - the best of both worlds.
