Life on the Road – Lower North Island

Every 4 months the Eldernet team visits a different area of New Zealand so we can touch base with local communities and those in the aged care sector. This “on the ground” knowledge is invaluable, and often means we know where the best place to get a good coffee or custard square is in even the most obscure places! We thought that we should share with you all some of the amazing places and people we meet during our travels. We are currently travelling for our Lower North book which means we are hitting Capital and Coast through to Hutt Valley, up through Mid Central, and across to Whanganui, Wairarapa and Hawke’s Bay DHBs. We look forward to seeing you all over the coming weeks!

Lunch Blackbird Cafe – my type of food and service. Lovely fresh flowers on the tables too.






Eleanor in Wairoa

Wairoa is the northernmost in the Hawke’s Bay region, and is located on the northern shore of Hawke Bay at the mouth of the Wairoa River and to the west of Mahia Peninsula.

Glengarry Lifecare now part  of the Heritage Lifecare Group, looking bright with new signage (full occupancy too).

Wairoa Library. A great place to spend some time – where you’ll also find free copies of our book ‘Where from Here’
