Special Features
Teviot Valley Rest Home is a purpose built facility which opened in April 2004. It is situated in the old Roxburgh Hospital. The Medical Centre operates out of the same building, as do the District Nurses and the physiotherapist, making access to these services readily available.

It is owned by the local community, and receives very strong support from them, in the form of fresh fruit and produce, handyman services, outings, and social events. Contact with the children from the school across the road is encouraged, and is enjoyed by residents and children alike.

A very friendly atmosphere is generated, as visitors tend to know all the residents, and as a result everybody enjoys a visit, not just one resident.

As we are situated in Central Otago we offer a wonderful opportunity for the elderly to use their carer support and/or respite care, and have a holiday at the same time.
This can be arranged by negotiation.

We also have a separate room available for out of town relatives to stay short term. this is available, at minimal cost, by negotiation with the manager.
