Description
Make your home at Waiapu Lifecare & Village

When it comes to everyday life, Waiapu makes it easy with a choice of self-contained apartments, village chalets and large rest home rooms complete with ensuites, Wifi and a call bell system. There’s also an on-site hospital to give you added peace of mind.

Part of the Hawke’s Bay community for over fifty years, Waiapu House is set amongst five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens just a hop, skip and jump from Havelock North Village. We also offer day, short stay, respite and convalescence care.

We offer everything from spa treatments to speech therapy, physiotherapy, podiatry, hairdressing and health checks. We have a range of recreational activities including gardening, exercise programmes, quizzes and social gatherings. Our facility van is always on hand for outings. We have an on-site chaplain who conducts church services in our beautiful John Scott designed Chapel and at last count, staff that
speak up to eight different languages.

But don’t just take our word for it, see what our resident Alan has to say...

Alan was born on a farm on the Scottish border, he competed in English Motorsport and flew Corsair planes. When he was 18, he came to visit family friends in New Zealand, had a look around Hawke’s Bay and decided that “this was the place to be.”

When he turned 80, Alan persuaded a Kiwi mate to be his navigator and they took a car back to England to do a rally. It turned out to be his last spin because that Christmas at his sister’s in Havelock North, Alan had a stroke.

That’s what started him on the path to Waiapu. “I was in the hospital for four months and the Doctor gave me a list of homes to visit. This was the second place I looked at and I said to my sister, this has everything I need, a great location, a room, and someone to keep an eye on me.”

From that day on, Alan says he hasn’t looked back. “I get involved in everything, don’t you worry about that. We’re doing bowls this afternoon, I’ve never done it before but I like trying something new. And I’ve got a garden in the courtyard that I water every afternoon.”

One of his main reasons for moving here was because of the on-site hospital wing. “Luckily I haven’t needed it yet and I feel fighting fit. The whole facility is as good as you can make them. All we need is good staff and to know we’re looked after and we’ve got that here.”

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.

 

In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
