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

Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Enliven Central’s Coombrae Home is lively and welcoming. The people are warm and friendly and there seems to be a smiling face at every corner. Situated in the Feilding township, with a tranquil semi-rural outlook, Coombrae Home is a community icon.

Coombrae Home, like all Enliven Central homes, embraces an elder directed model of care called the Eden Alternative.

This means we work to ensure the elders of Coombrae Home have companionship, variety and spontaneity, fun, meaningful activity and purpose in their lives. It ensures that elders are involved in decisions that relate to both their personal well being and what happens at their home.

Here, residents are supported to maintain their independence and routines, and to continue with hobbies, interests and passions, in a way that’s right for the individual.

Our staff are not only highly trained, they’re also friendly, caring and embrace our elder-directed philosophy of care. Our nurses are on-site during the day and on-call overnight. The doctor also visits regularly and we are in regular contact with residents to ensure all clinical needs are met.

Enliven’s Coombrae Home offers rest home and dementia care services, as well as short term respite, health recovery care and an engaging day programme.

As an Enliven home we’re proud to be more than just ‘family friendly’. At Coombrae Home, your family is part of our family. After all, family, friends and the community play a big part in life here.

At Coombrae, you’ll find there are no set visiting times; you can invite your grandchildren, family and friends to visit at any time. Plus we have a great toy box and games to keep the little ones entertained!

You may like to invite family or friends to join in the special events and social outings organised by Coombrae Home. And of course, family and friends are always welcome to join you for a meal.

There are many reasons why people enjoy living at Enliven’s Coombrae Home. We asked one of our residents that live here what they like the most about their home.

“I choose Coombrae because I needed extra support and I had heard good things about it. I’m spoilt rotten and loving every minute of it.” – George
