There’s a lot of coming and going at Te Ata. Some residents come in for long term care, some for short term respite care,and some come for the day and go home at night. To make things more confusing we can even take our rest home care out to your loved one in their own home.

Come and have a chat with us. We will listen, and then assist you in anyway to ensure your loved one receives the best care package to meet their needs.
