The Oaks Care


Our Care Offering

Purpose designed and built around beautiful, extensive gardens, The Oaks is home to many residents who knew each other from the community before moving in. As a result the atmosphere is warm and friendly.


At the centre of the facility, you’ll find internal courtyards and an activity room – the places where residents come together to enjoy each other’s company and get involved in the many organised activities. Our two full time Activities Co-ordinators work hard to continually come up with new ideas for the varied activities programme.


Activities Programme

The Oaks offers a well balanced programme including daily exercise programme, van outings, crafts, movies, bowls, housie for all Resthome/ Hospital Residents. This gives all residents the opportunity to mix at all levels with other residents.


What’s Near By

The Oaks is situated close to a number of good shopping centres, including the Bush Inn Centre, Westfield Riccarton, Avonhead Shopping Centre and the Hornby Hub. Over the road from the facility there is a library and a café and we are within walking distance of churches and parks.

The Oaks Care

  • "Please pass on our thanks to you and your team who have done a marvellous job in caring and settling him in. The professionalism and level of care has been excellent." - Daughter of Oceania resident

  • "You are all very special people, I saw the dignity and respect you show all the residents including my mum, I head back overseas in the knowledge she is very well cared for." - Daughter of Oceania resident

  • "I love to be here. The staff are absolutely incredible. I feel so safe and that's the main thing." - Dorothy Girven, Oceania Resident

  • "Rettie, thank you, all of your staff have done more than we could have ever achieved alone. 2 years and 5 months after our mum fell down and broke her hip – she has melted with your persistent loving care and got up from her chair. Mum’s psychogeriatricist said she may never get up. You have proved this wrong." - Family member of Oceania resident

  • "It occurs to me that 'the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.' To me this means the endless patience, encouragement, support and tireless care your staff give my family cannot be understated." - Family member of Oceania resident

  • "The staff I had most contact with were Diane, Lorraine and Mia. They have been just fantastic, but I realise that everyone has contributed to Mum’s overall care. There were mornings when I had to wait for the staff to finish hugging Mum and telling her to have a lovely time when I came to take her out." - Family members of Oceania resident

  • "Just want to let you know how happy and grateful our family is, not only for the superb care you’re providing for our Mum but also for the wonderful respect and kindness everyone shows to residents and family members." - Family of Oceania resident

  • "On more than one occasion, the nurses came in to talk to Alan and say goodbye to him for the day, before they left at the end of their shift. They all loved him and cared for him in a most special way, even though Alan was unable to speak very much due to a stroke." - Niece of Oceania resident
