Riverside Lodge is a warm and friendly 20 bedded home which is close to Foxton Beach, where the sound of the ocean waves can be heard.

We encourage our residents with independent living and are one of the few Rest Homes that have a self-help buffet style breakfast with choices of eggs, cereals, porridge, fruit and toast. Home styled meals are prepared and cooked on site and we can accomadate all types of dietary requirements as well.

Be secure in the knowledge that your loved ones will receive 24 hour care should they require it, however still be able to keep their independency, dignity and free spirit.
