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. We can also care for your loved one in their own home or in a supported living house.

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.
