Feel safe, feel secure

WAIRARAPA VILLAGE care facility can provide high level of rest home and hospital level care. You will have access to 24-hour care in a safe and comfortable environment with a Nurse Manager and team of registered Nurses and trained Caregivers dedicated to your wellbeing. With a choice of living options, you can stay close to your spouse or partner if your care needs are different. You will be able to enjoy great companionship, keep busy with a variety of village activities and share quality time with your family and friends.

The best care is the care that is personalised

We believe that each resident deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. To us this means providing tailored services and care requirements that each person may need, delivered with kindness and compassion.

Assessment for rest home & hospital care

If you believe you or your loved one can no longer live at home with the current support, the first step is to apply for a needs assessment from Focus or the District Health Board. To start the process, simply visit your GP to ask for a needs assessment. A needs assessment will determine the level of care that is
required and if the care is short term or on-going.

Respite care and health recovery options

If you are caring for an older person and need a break, WAIRARAPA VILLAGE offers short term respite care. We also offer health recovery and rehabilitation. Please talk to your GP as care may be funded by your District Health Board. Alternatively it can be directly arranged with us and privately funded.

Can I apply for financial help?

Yes, if you are 65 or over and your ‘support needs assessment’ confirms that you may be eligible for government financial assistance. Work and Income New Zealand will have all the information required and can explain what assistance is available and eligibility criteria. Please call 0800 559 009 or if you prefer, we
can assist you with this process.
