Special Features
Ropata Lodge provides assisted supported living care for the elderly.

Some residents will be quite independent and others will require more personal care and / or nursing assistance.

Generally the Ropata has a few apartments available for short term stays for respite or convalescent care. This service is ideal for those people who may need care and support following hospital discharge or perhaps when their caregiver and / or family members are away on holiday. Clients of ACC and also private medical schemes use the services of Ropata Lodge from time to time.

Interests & Activities
Ropata Lodge encourages residents to participate in activities of their choice. Our vision is for Ropata to be interacting with the community on many levels.

In-house programmes include: in-door bowls; bingo; quizzes; puzzles.

Groups of residents meet at their leisure for cards, scrabble and other games.

Fireside drinks are held on a fortnightly basis with finger food and entertainment provided.

Choirs and musical performers are invited to perform in the atrium on a regular basis.

A strong sense of belonging makes it easy for family members to organise additional activities such as video/DVD nights, craft workshops and outings.
